Get ready to be the Friendsgiving MVP. This twist pumpkin spice is anything but basic. A cheesy graham cracker crust and a smooth, creamy filling are a one-two punch of CHEETOS® flavor that take any Friendsgiving to the next level.


How to make it

  • For the crusts:

  • 1

    Preheat your oven to 350°F.

  • 2

    Grind CHEETOS® White Cheddar Bites finely in a food processor.

  • 3

    Mix ground CHEETOS®, ground graham crackers, melted butter, sugar and salt, massaging between your paws until the mixture is a sandy texture.

  • 4

    Divide the mixture between 2 12-inch round pans.

  • 5

    FLAMIN’ HOT® Tip: The bottom of a measuring cup is purrfect for flattening your crust on the bottom and sides of the pan.

  • 6

    Bake crusts 15 minutes and then cool.

  • For the filling:

  • 1

    Place your CHEETOS® White Cheddar Bites, heavy cream and milk in a saucepan over medium heat and bring to a simmer.

  • 2

    Once it’s nice and bubbly, cover the pan, remove it from the heat, and let it hang out and cool for 20 minutes.

  • 3

    Blend filling mixture until mixed and smooth.

  • 4

    Place pumpkin, eggs, brown sugar, cornstarch, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, pumpkin spice, black pepper and vanilla extract in large bowl and mix well.

  • 5

    Add in cheesy cream purée to the bowl and combine. Then divide pie filling between two pans.

  • 6

    Bake pies for about 50 minutes. You’ll know they’re done when the center is firm and springy.

  • 7

    As hard as it is, allow the pies to cool completely before digging in—at least 2 hours.

  • 8

    And of course, top them with whipped cream and more cheesy CHEETOS® goodness before serving.
