Pumpkin Icebox Pie: Secret Recipe Club

Here we are, another month has gone by since the last Secret Recipe Club. This is my fifth month already, amazing! Today my Secret Blogger is Allison from Sweet Flours, what a perfect match for me!

There were so many great recipes to choose from, like these Strawberry and Cream Bars, or these S’Mores Bars, and of course I was tempted by these Caramel Apple Cupcakes.

But since today kicks off a week of Pumpkin Recipes and fun ideas for you, I finally decided on Pumpkin Icebox Pie, a perfect dessert for Fall or to add to your Thanksgiving Dinner.

This Pumpkin Pie is a bit different than the traditional one, with the cinnamon graham cracker crust and the filling with cream cheese and gelatin makes it extra creamy. There are several steps to the recipe, but the good thing is, it can be made ahead, wrapped in plastic and ready for you to serve.

Top it off with Cinnamon Whipping Cream and you will be in heaven!

    Great looking pie, Liz. I like the idea of a no bake pie at Thanksgiving when the oven is in such high demand for other dishes!

    I just made this and it is chilling in the fridge, and I just realized it said 29oz can of pumpkin my pumpkin was a 15oz can. I hope I did not ruin it but what little I tasted seemed fine. I am hoping everything comes out fine I guess if anything the filling will definetely be firmer it didn’t taste extremely sweet so it seemed fine. I didn’t even know they sold a 29oz can.

    • Liz says:

      Hi Diana, I’m sure it will be fine. It’s been a few years since I made this pie, so honestly I don’t remember the consistency. But it should be fine.
      Happy Baking!
