5-Minute No-Bake Pumpkin Cheesecake

Here's a recipe for those of you who are severely time-constrained but have to come up with a dish or dessert, like for a potluck.  It is unbelievably easy and quick to make, and will probably be a hit at the dinner table or whatever event you might bring it to.  ;) 

I made this up on a whim last night without having had the benefit of a prior recipe as a starting I'm relieved to say it turned out pretty good!  ;)  I have tried to see if there's another recipe out there just like it, but so far I've had no luck in finding one, which is surprising considering I'm using pre-made cheesecake filling.  You'd think there'd be a ton of recipes out there for this filling, but not so much that I've found.  (If you do find one, let me know, would you??)

1 tub Cheesecake Filling
½ can pumpkin (about 7-8 oz)
1 Tbsp pumpkin pie spice
1 pre-made graham cracker pie crust

Take out pre-made pie crust & remove the plastic lid.  Set aside.  In a bowl, empty tub of cream cheese filling.  Add canned pumpkin and the tablespoon of pumpkin pie spice.  Fold in and mix well. Pour into pie crust. Ready to serve as is, or you can cover and chill for serving later.

Makes 8 servings.
