Hump Day Snack: Cheesecake Pumpkin Pecan "Chumpcan" Pie

Recreate some of Thanksgiving's legendary hybrid creations like the turducken or churpumple cake with this Cheesecake Pumpkin Pecan "Chumpecan" Pie.
By: Jamie Lisanti

Turducken, Veggieducken, Cherpumple, Pumpecapple — no matter if you're preparing main course or dessert, Thanksgiving's overstuffed, multi-layer creations are guaranteed to get you tongue-tied and make a statement on your dinner table. Channel the hybrid nature of these behemoth creations with this recipe for Cheesecake-Pumpkin-Pecan Pie. Just like our Veggieducken, which packs sweet potatoes and stuffing into a squash, this three-in-one masterpiece combines a flaky pie crust, a smooth cheesecake, custardy pumpkin and a gooey, sweet pecan filling all into one jaw-widening dessert. You’ll need to make each component separately and freeze each layer to achieve the perfect layers. Once it has baked off and the nutty pecan pie topping has cooled, crack into the crust and cut a piece of what we’re calling the chumpcan pie – it’s triple shot of Thanksgiving-dessert heaven.
