Servings - 8 slices


  • 9-inch pie plate
  • pie crust shield


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1/8 cup shortening or butter
  • 2 Tbsp cold water (2-4 Tbsp)
  • 3/4 cup mini chocolate chips
  • 8 oz. cream cheese softened
  • 1/8 cup white sugar
  • 5 Tbsp cocoa
  • 1 egg
  • 15 oz. can pumpkin puree
  • 2/3 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tsp pumpkin pie spice mix
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 4 eggs


  • Preheat oven to 375 F. Grease a deep dish pie plate with non-stick cooking spray.
  • To prepare homemade pie crust, place flour in mixing bowl; add butter and cut in with pastry blender. Add salt and then add cold water 1 Tablespoon at a time. Mix and toss ingredients together with a fork until dough ball forms. Place in plastic wrap or Ziploc baggie and put into the refrigerator while you make the filling. Pie crust can be made up to a day in advance and kept in the refrigerator.
  • In a mixing bowl, beat together the cream cheese, sugar, cocoa and egg.
  • In another mixing bowl, beat together the pumpkin puree, brown sugar, and pumpking pie spice mix. Whisk in the eggs.
  • Once filling is prepared, take the dough ball from the fridge and place on lightly floured surface.
  • Using a lightly floured rolling pin, roll out the crust dough into a circle at least 12 inches in diameter and gently fold pie crust into quarters. Move the folded pie crust from the counter to the pie plate.
  • Unfold in the pie plate. Flute edges in your favorite design.
  • Sprinkle the mini chocolate chips in the base of the pie shell.
  • Spread the cream cheese filling over top of the chocolate chips, then pour the pumpkin filling on top of the cream cheese layer.
  • Bake at 375 for 60 to 70 minutes, or until filling has set in the middle. Use a pie crust shield, or foil to keep the crust edges from burning.
  • Let cool completely on cooling rack. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours to chill.
  • Serve Pumpkin Double Chocolate Cheesecake, chilled.
