No Bake Cheesecake Pumpkin Pie

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I made this pie:

http://www.recipezaar.com/26407

with a gingersnap cookie crumb crust. The cookie recipe is in "Cooking Free" by Carol Fenster.

It is awesome!

The crust:

1 2/3 cups cookie crumbs

3 T. butter

3 T. sugar

One dish method I learned from Rachelle:

Melt butter in 9" pie dish, add remaining ingredients, stir well with a fork and press crumbs into pie plate and up the sides. Bake 8 minutes @ 375 degrees.

I love cheesecake!!! I'm going to add that one to my file! I love this time of year, I am baking constantly. I made these caramel apple bars yesterday that were soooo good-but had to get them out of my house (my co-workers appreciated that :P ) And I was going to try this cheesecake recipe next week-gluten-free crust of course, because I'm mildly obsessed about baking with apples right now:

Yeah, I couldn't get the link to work so I gave up on trying to figure it out. I don't DO computers very well. :(

YES....That's the cheesecake! :D I don't have a spring form pan so I am making it in a deep pie dish. I have 2 pies lined up for Thanksgiving and a df/gluten-free apple crumble. Its so much fun making new things (that turn out well anyway). I think I will save cherry cheesecake for Christmas. My favorite pies are chocolate with a cream cheese base and sour cream lemon.

Thanks for the crust idea, I always used a bowl to make "graham cracker" crusts then poured it into a pie dish. And I don't have a dish washer in this house.

This was my first time using gluten-free cookie crumbs to make a crust with. My crust was too firm so I will use less butter next time. I am so glad many people said to use ginger snaps for the crust...WOW! I will never use a graham cracker crust again (we are not all gluten-free) 100 percent BETTER!

I have some questions???

For a baked pumpkin pie and a cookie crumb crust, how do they bake up?

Should you freeze the crust first like I read somewhere to prevent over baking?

Or just make the crust and don't prebake it?

For a non-dairy cookie crumb crust can you just use oil or shortening?

I also read to use a beaten egg white in the crumb crust for the baked pumpkin pie, anyone try it?

If I made them into tarts do I need to bake them less time?

Any suggestions for mini tarts with crumb crust or should I just use pastry?

I appreciate all your tips!

I have a womens pot luck next week and I want to take something pumpkin.

I think the egg white would help hold it together without changing the flavor. I made the butter mistake the 1st time I made a cheesecake crust with the Pamela's shortbread cookies-they were so buttery already, after I added the full stick of butter, it was way overboard. But if you really love the cookie crumb crust instead of a regular pie crust for pumpkin pie, I'd go for it. I don't think you'd need to change the cooking times at all. I don't change any of the cooking times on any of the crusts I use-it's more about cooking the filling. If you think the crust is getting too dark, you can decrease the temperature 25-50 or maybe in a water bath-I bet that would prevent it from over baking. I have a new crust for you to try, I think it would make a few pies worth (it ended up covering 2 9x13 pans)- and I think it would be killer for apple, pumpkin or peach--as well as cheesecake:

This makes a lot so you might want to mix it in a bowl:

1c brown sugar

1c butter-melted

1tsp cinnamon

3/4tsp salt

1c Pamelas baking mix (or 1c flour mix and 1/2 tsp baking soda-little xanthan if you want)

1c ground nuts (I used almond meal)

2c gluten-free oats (may want to pulse a few times in blender or food processor)

mix the sugar and melted butter together 1st, then add the other ingredients, it will loom crumb-y. More ingredients than I prefer to use, but I'm telling ya, it's amazing!!

I thought about using some ground nuts but not the oats. That would be perfect for a pie crust...THANKS! I have 1/2 cup of Pamela's left so that would be a good way to use it up with 1/2 a recipe. And some granny apples..mmm Sounds like apple crisp topping :P

Thanks for your tips too!

    Thank you for all of the suggestions and information.  I will see a lot of the symptoms that I have that I didn't mention listed caused by lack of certain enzymes.  I have blood tests every 3 months. That is when I noticed my cholesterol, etc. not in check.  I eat too many carbohydrates because it causes less diarrhea than a lot of vegetables.  But in talking to 3 of my sisters they are already on medication for the problem.   One has Celiacs the other has Sjorgrens which I also have.  I'm conce
    For the fog and memory, it can be many things, the brain requires certain ratios and amounts of fat to function, it also requires b-vitamins the full spectrum among other amino acids, minerals and vitamins, nerve functions require magnesium, potassium and other things to fire right.  Celiac can hamper the ability to break down and absorb nutrients, digestive issues and enzymes can further complicate this, and trying to eat the right ratios of foods. I supplement with Liquid Health Mega B-compl
    I am interested in your comments about losing your memory.  I have Celiacs and IBS, etc.   Very difficult to eat a healthy diet.  One goes against the other.  The past year I have noticed a marked difference in my memory and was very concerned about it because my mother had Alzheimer's.  I had a brain scan but that is not the problem at least it doesn't show up on the MRI.  All of my blood enzymes are way out of line for my size and I'm thinking it's the diet and inability to do extensive exerci
