 Why is it that you get so nervous when you realize a police car is right behind you?
The other day I was driving along and I happened to look in my rear view mirror,
and there was a police car following right behind me.

Every single time that happens, my heart drops into my stomach,
and I instantly look at my speedometer to make sure I’m not speeding.

I hadn’t gone through a red light…that day,
and I wasn’t trying to text and drive.
So why do I get so jumpy?

I did the same thing another day when we went past the park,
and sure enough in the turn around was a cop car.
My eyes dropped right to my speed.
This time I was going about 10 over…
I thought for sure I was going to be busted.
My stomach was full of butterflies and I felt all jittery!
And of course the kids were in the van with me.

Thank goodness, no red lights and sirens came after me.

Quite honestly, this pie is going to give you the same jumpy feelings in your stomach.
You will not be able to stop looking at it.
You will keep opening the refrigerator door just to stare at it again….and again.
And bite after bite will disappear into your mouth when you cut that first piece!!!
So, apparently I lied the other day when I said I was on the downward slope
of pumpkin baking goodness…
because then I made a pumpkin green smoothie, pumpkin soup, and this pumpkin brownie pie.
What???  There was pumpkin left in the fridge, and I didn’t want to be wasteful.
I literally begged my husband to take this pie to work with him after I made it.
There was no way I could be trusted around a pie like this!!
It was everything a pie should be.

The layers in this…oh the layers.
Deep rich mocha brownie layer that is so ooey and gooey and so wrong, but oh so right.
Pumpkin cheesecake that tastes like pumpkin pie with a light cheesecake twist.
Cool Whip, you can’t forget the fluffy, white goodness on a pie like this.
I like my Cool Whip with a side of pie :-)
You are going to want to make this one soon.
Like this weekend soon.
Or just put it on your Thanksgiving day pie list,
but I really think you will want to make it before that.
Have you looked at those layers?
Even your thighs are begging you to make this one :-)

Pumpkin Cheesecake Brownie Pie

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 50 minutes

Yield: 12 slices

Pumpkin Cheesecake Brownie Pie

This delicious pie has layers of brownie and pumpkin cheesecake. It is the perfect fall dessert!


1 sheet refrigerated pie crust
1 brownie mix (18 oz.)
1/4 cup oil
1/4 cup water
1 Tablespoon instant coffee
2 eggs
1 package cream cheese (8 oz.)
1/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
2 Tablespoons flour
3/4 cup pumpkin puree
1 container Cool Whip (8 oz.)


  1. Roll out the refrigerated pie crust. Place the crust in a 10 inch glass pie plate.
  2. In a mixing bowl, combine the brownie mix, oil, water, coffee, and one egg. Beat until combined. Carefully spread in the bottom of the pie crust. Bake for 30 minutes at 350 degrees.
  3. While the brownie layer is baking, beat the cream cheese, sugar, and vanilla until smooth. Add the egg and pumpkin and beat again. Slowly add in the cinnamon, nutmeg, and flour.
  4. When the brownie layer is finished, remove from the oven and carefully spread the cheesecake on top of the brownie layer. Cover the edges of the pie crust with foil to keep from burning. Place back in the oven and bake another 20-25 minutes.
  5. Remove from the oven and set on a cooling rack. Let cool for an hour. Place in refrigerator and cool completely. Spread the Cool Whip on top and sprinkle with extra cinnamon if desired.


*If you do not like mocha flavored brownies, feel free to leave out the instant coffee.

    You’re right, just looking at these photos and I get jumpy feelings in my stomach.
    These brownies look scrumptious and they’re screaming my name!!

  2. says

    I get the same way when I see a cop car. Every morning on my way to work the cops sit in the same place and I always slow way down and everyone ends up passing me. This pie looks amazing!! I wish I could grab a piece through the screen!

  3. says

    That pie looks amazing! Too bad we can’t sample through the computer…that could be dangerous. Speaking of dangerous…I’m glad I’m not the only one who gets like that when a cop pulls up behind me. I always do the same as you, and straighten my posture and tighten my grip on the wheel. lol.

  4. says

    My heart always skips a beat when i see police cars! even if i’m doing nothing wrong, lol..i just hate them!! cause they always have some dumb excuse if they come after you. my heart is skipping a beat now staring at this cheesecake brownie pie!! delicious!!

  5. says

    Oh my, this looks soooo good. Digging that brownie layer and the cheesecake layer too.

    And yes! I do the exact same when I just happen to look in my rearview mirror and see the police behind me too. First thing I do is look at my speed. I normally then switch my car onto cruise control at the speed limit so I know I won’t end up going over too. Haha.

    Oh my goodness Jocelyn, where has this pie been all my life? To. Die. For. Totally pinned, totally making it. And I HATE when a cop is behind me. Or when I realize one is hiding behind the bushes as I drive past. Jitters, every time!!!

  7. says

    Ha! I do the same when I see a police car – immediately check my speedometer. Your pie looks heavenly. I’ve seen a lot of pumpkin cheesecake in blogland right now but none with an amazing brownie layer in it. So going to make this. Thanks!

  8. says

    This pie is out of this world. I could not be trusted with it because it would be gone in 24 hours! And I’m right there with you…love my Cool Whip with a side of pie :)

      You can leave out the coffee and it won’t affect it at all. The coffee in it just helps deepen the chocolate flavor!!!

  10. Jessica says

    I’ve got to try this! I love making cheesecakes! I have made a chocolate chip brownie cheesecake before and it was oh so good and rich, now I must try this too! thanks!

  11. Maury says

    I made this tonight and let me just say it was AMAZING!!! I will def be making this again- would be a perfect dish to push you over the edge on Thanksgiving- decadent!!!! Thank you so much for the recipe!!!

    • Jocelyn says

      I am so excited to hear that you made it and loved it so much! It is definitely a perfect end to a Thanksgiving dinner!!!

  12. says

    I just got a shock of sweetness by looking at these pictures. This pie looks so extremely gorgeous and delicious – I am flashed by this recipe!

  13. Kristine says

    Just wondering, with the bake time between the brownies and then again with the cheesecake
    if it make the brownie layer overcooked?

  14. Ramona says

    Sorry, I don’t know ANY really good cooks or bakers who would use “plastic” cool whip in a quality recipe…. I don’t believe in store bought crusts, box mixes, or anything less than pure whipping cream and real butter.

  15. Sharon S. says

    Hi Jocelyn,

    I hate to be a nay-sayer, but in this case, I will. Why do you cut shapes from the second pie crust to put onto the first crust when they will be covered and unseen? Why not just double the recipe and make two pies? That will be my plan when I make this for Thanksgiving. Other than that, this pie looks amazing, and I can’t wait to try it!

    • says

      Bring on any constructive comments for sure! I guess my thinking was that you would really see them after the pie was done. It was done for look, but didn’t work out quite like I planned. I still added it to the recipe if someone wanted to do it and use less Cool Whip! Your idea of two pies makes more sense though :-)

  16. Lori says

    Can you tell me what brand of brownie mix you use? There are so many different brands, each with a different flavor…some are dark chocolate fudge, some are milk chocolate. I want to use the same one you use!

  17. Shannon says

    I’m not a big cool whip person, how do you think this would be with fresh whipped cream put on top right before serving? Or I’m trying to think if there is another alternative to cool whip. Thanks!!

    • says

      Fresh whipped cream would be fine, but you would have to make it and serve it with the pie right away. I don’t think you would want to top the pie with it and store it that way in the refrigerator though.

  18. Theresa Johnson says

    I am a little confused on the recipe. I see in step #3 it says add egg, pumpkin and cream but I don’t see any cream listed in the ingredients. Should there be cream listed in the ingredients?
    Thank you.
