No sugar added pumpkin cheesecake

Here's a recipe for a no-sugar added pumpkin cheesecake. It's simply dreamy! The recipe comes from Dessert Every Night by Joanna Lund. It has aroung 200 dessert recipes, all of which are safe for diabetics. Note that there is a small amount of sugar in some ingredients, such as the crust and Cool Whip Lite.

Holiday Pumpkin Cheesecake

2 8-oz. packages cream cheese (fat-free if you prefer)
1 4-oz. package butterscotch sugar-free instant pudding mix
2/3 cup nonfat dry milk powder
1 cups (one 15-oz. can) pumpkin
1 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
1 6-oz. premade graham cracker pie crust
3/4 cup Cool Whip Lite
2 tablespoons chopped pecans or walnuts

Soften the cream cheese and then stir until smooth. Add dry pudding mix, dry milk powder, pumpkin, and pumpkin pie spice. Mix well. Spead mixture into picrust. Evenly spread Cool Whip Lite over filling and sprinkle with chopped nuts. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours. Cut into 8 servings.

My notes:
The recipe says to separate the Cool Whip Lite by adding 1/4 cup Cool Whip Lite to the filling along with the pumpkin pie spice and spreading 1/2 cup on top of pie; I just use the whole 3/4 cup on top and it tastes wonderful to me, plus there's less measuring to be done.

I love Pumpkin Cheesecake! I was born on Thanksgiving so any dessert with pumpkin is a winner with me!
