This holiday-inspired recipe is a marriage made in heaven. One of the great revelations to me when I moved to the United States was pumpkin pie. How is it possible I had never known it before? So much time lost!
But there is another type of pie I really love and that is pay de queso, the way we made it when I was growing up in Mexico. It’s like a very light cheesecake.
So I thought, what would happen if I combined the two? Well, the result was something special.
When I was thinking about how to create this recipe, I immediately thought of Ranchero® Queso Fresco, because it has the perfect consistency, a light saltiness, and just the right amount of moisture.
Not only does this pie have the best of both traditional pies-the rich aromas of the pumpkin pie with the lightness of the Mexican style cheesecake, but together they create the perfect sweet and savory balance delivered in a light, marbled filling. It even looks particularly beautiful.
