Paradise Pumpkin Pie - De-Lish!

This is another one of those recipes that I've made every year since I got the recipe.  It has a 'beloved' cream cheese  layer and is so yummy.  Hope you and yours enjoy it also.


8 oz. cream cheese, softened

1/4 cup sugar

1/2 tsp. vanilla extract

1 egg

1- 9" unbaked pie shell

1-1/4 cup canned pumpkin

1/2 cup sugar

2 eggs, slightly beaten

1 tsp. cinnamon

1/4 tsp. ginger

1/4 tsp. nutmeg

dash of salt

1 cup evaporated milk

Preheat oven to 350. Combine cream cheese, 1/4 cup sugar, and vanilla, mixing until well blended.  Blend in egg.  Spread on bottom of pie crust.  Combine remaining ingredients; mix well. Carefully spoon over cream cheese.  Bake 1 hour.  Cool.  Brush with maple syrup or honey. Refrigerate.  Serve with whipped topping.
