This pumpkin cream pie is delicious!

It just isn’t Thanksgiving without pumpkin pie, and this no bake pumpkin pie just might be your new favorite recipe!

This is a fun take on the classic pumpkin pie, made with a creamy whipped cream cheese pumpkin filling.

Whipped cream pies so light and fluffy and no bake which is great for saving space in the oven. For the holidays we love this whipped pumpkin pie, oreo pie, pecan cream pie, and no bake peanut butter pie.

Be warned though! Once you try a whipped pumpkin pie you will find it irresistible. So creamy smooth and sweet, it’s definitely one of my top favorite pumpkin recipes.

How to make no bake pumpkin pie

You can either use the mixers, or a rubber spatula and mix by hand. Once combined, it should look fluffy and creamy like the picture below.

How long to chill pumpkin cream pie

Step 5: Cover the pumpkin cream pie and place in the fridge. I prefer to leave the pie overnight, but you need to chill for at least 3-4 hours before cutting into it.

This is a great Thanksgiving dessert that you can easily make ahead of time. Simply make it a day or two before Thanksgiving dinner and store in the fridge until it’s dessert time!

My husband and I both felt it needed more sugar. If I make it again, I'll use 3/4 c of brown sugar

Hello, can I substitute something else for the whipping cream?

You can use cool whip, but it will change the sweetness level of the pie.
