1 9x13-inch pan


  • 2 cups graham cracker crumbs

  • ½ cup margarine, melted

  • 12 ounces cream cheese, softened

  • 3 eggs, beaten

  • ¾ cup white sugar

  • 1 (15 ounce) can pumpkin puree

  • 3 eggs, separated

  • ½ cup milk

  • ¾ cup white sugar

  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • ½ teaspoon ground nutmeg

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 2 (.25 ounce) packages unflavored gelatin

  • ¼ cup cold water

  • ¼ cup boiling water

  • ½ cup white sugar

  • 1 (8 ounce) container frozen whipped topping, thawed

  • 3 tablespoons ground walnuts


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease one 9x13 inch pan.

  2. In a medium bowl, mix the graham cracker crumbs and margarine. Evenly press into prepared pan to form a crust.

  3. Blend together the cream cheese, eggs and sugar; evenly spread over crust and bake for 20 minutes in the preheated oven. Set aside to cool.

  4. In a 2 quart saucepan, combine the pumpkin, egg yolks, milk, 3/4 cup sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until sugar is dissolved. Set aside to cool.

  5. Combine gelatin and cold water in a small bowl and allow to soften for 5 minutes. Mix in boiling water to dissolve. Stir into the pumpkin mixture.

  6. In a mixing bowl, beat egg whites until frothy. Gradually add 1/2 cup sugar; beat until stiff. Fold into pumpkin mixture and pour over cream cheese layer. Refrigerate until firm, about 4 hours, and cut into squares. Top with whipped topping and sprinkle with walnuts.
