Pumpkin Chocolate Cheesecake Pie

Hello all!  Are you still stuffed from Thanksgiving?!  Aww good :)  I wish we had some turkey leftover because 1.) I love cold turkey sandwiches and 2.) it would make this week’s menu easier.  Haha!  But mostly because I love turkey sandwiches!  (Anyone else agree?)
Our menu this week (although turkey sandwich-less) is still pretty yummy..
Breakfast:
Cereal (wah wah wah.. lazy Monday breakfast)
Hash browns and eggs
Breakfast tacos
Italian omelet
Dinner:
Chicken and bow tie pasta
Stuffed chicken and rice
Brat pot pie
Taco Salad (or maybe nachos..)
Leftovers
What are yall having this week?  Link up your menu in the comments so I can see!
Ok.. so I promised a pie recipe.  Not just any pie.. the granddaddy of pies.  Its a pumpkin chocolate cheesecake pie!  {You read that right my friends!}  I found this recipe in a Better Homes and Garden magazine a few years ago and thought I would make it to impress my future in-laws.  I was nervous it wasnt going to turn out good (Id never made a cheesecake or a pumpkin pie!) but Im happy to report Im one of their favorite daughter in laws!  {Totally think the pie helped.. or maybe the fact that I married their son.. or that they only have two daughter in laws.. either way!  It worked.. haha!}
I know Thanksgiving is over but this would be great for a Christmas party or a family gathering.  It really is an easy pie to make and its delicious.
Pumpkin Chocolate Cheesecake Pie
Ingredients:
12 oz cream cheese
1/4 cup sugar
1 egg
3/4 cup chopped chocolate chips (I used minis)
15 oz can pumpkin
2/3 cup packed brown sugar
2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
4 eggs
3/4 cup half and half
2 deep dish pie shells (yes two.. see below)
1. Ingredients – Preheat oven to 450
2. Combine the cream cheese, egg and sugar.  Beat until smooth.
3. Pour it into a deep dish pie shell.
4. Mix pumpkin, brown sugar and spice.  Mix in the 4 eggs.  Slowly add the half and half to the mixture.
Left – Add your chocolate chips on top of the cream cheese layer
Right – Slowly add the pumpkin mixture on top of the chocolate.
Bake for 60 to 65 minutes or until a knife comes out clean.
Left – The ever delicious pumpkin chocolate cheesecake pie
Right – The leftover pumpkin mixture!
This pie has one problem though.. I always have leftover pumpkin pie mix when Im done!  I mean enough to make a whole other pie!  The past few years I just tossed it because I didnt have an extra pie shell.  But this year I bought two shells and ended up with two amazing pies.  {Score!}  I was basically the hero of Thanksgiving.  Haha.  Ok maybe not but the pies were a hit and I love making them.  :)
What did you make special for Thanksgiving?  Anything yummy?  Share it with me in the comments or link it up to the Friday link party going on now!
