Why I Love This Recipe

Whenever I take this pie to a holiday party, potluck supper or bake sale, I take along copies of the recipe, too...I'm sure to be asked for it. With the pie's very rich taste, even a sliver is satisfying. It is a must for the dessert table for the holidays and the only pumpkin pie my family wants to have.

1 pkg (8 oz) cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 egg
