This no bake pumpkin pie is made uniquely delicious with layers of gingersnap cookies! Once chilled, the filling softens the cookies for alternating layers of creamy pumpkin pie filling and tender gingersnap cookies in every bite.


Graham Cracker Crust (homemade or store-bought)

  • 1 1/4 cup (145g) ground graham crackers (regular or gluten free)
  • 1/4 cup (55g) light brown sugar, packed
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 6 tbsp unsalted butter, melted

No Bake Pumpkin Pie Filling

  • 8 oz cream cheese, room temp
  • 1/2 cup (100g) granulated sugar
  • 1 15oz can pumpkin puree *NOT pumpkin pie filling
  • 1 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1/8 tsp ground cloves
  • 1 1/2 cups (360g) heavy whipping cream
  • 3 tbsp powdered sugar
  • 1 tbsp dry milk powder (optional)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 16oz box gingersnap cookies (regular or gluten free)*make sure they’re crisp, NOT soft


Graham Cracker Crust

  1. Mix together the ground graham crackers, brown sugar, and cinnamon.
  2. Once evenly mixed, stir in the melted butter.
  3. Press the crust into a 9″ pie dish, covering the bottom and sides.
  4. Place the crust in the refrigerator while we make the filling.

No Bake Pumpkin Pie Filling

  1. Using a hand or stand mixer with the whisk attachment, mix together the cream cheese and sugar until smooth.
  2. Scrape down the bowl and then mix in the pumpkin and spices. Set aside.
  3. In a separate mixing bowl using a hand or stand mixer with the whisk attachment, add the whipping cream, powdered sugar, milk powder, and vanilla.
  4. Whip on high speed until you reach a smooth consistency with stiff peaks. Careful not to over whip so keep a close eye on it!
  5. Spoon a little less than half of the whipped cream into the pumpkin mixture.
  6. Using a rubber spatula, gently fold the two together. Run the spatula around the bowl and through the batter, repeating this process until you can no longer see any white streaks of whipped cream.
  7. Spread a thin layer of filling in the bottom of the crust.
  8. Arrange a single layer of gingersnap cookies on top, breaking cookies as needed to fill big gaps.
  9. Scoop another layer of filling on top (thicker than the first) and repeat the process. Keep alternating layers until you run out of filling (you likely will not use the entire 16oz box of cookies, but close to it). It’s OK if the filling overtakes the crust.
  10. Top the pie with the other half of whipped cream and place in an air tight container (you can also place a large bowl upside down over the pie if you don’t have a container large enough).
  11. Place the pie in the refrigerator and allow it to chill for at least 4 hours but preferably overnight.
  12. The next day, top with extra gingersnap cookies and serve chilled. Enjoy!
