No-Bake Pumpkin Pie

Nonstick cooking spray
8 ounces graham crackers, or, pre-made grahm craker pie crust
¾ teaspoon salt
10 tablespoons (1¼ sticks) unsalted butter, melted
10 ounces white chocolate chips (1½ cups)
15-ounce can pumpkin puree
8 ounces cream cheese (room temperature)
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
½ teaspoon ground ginger
⅛ teaspoon ground cloves
Whipped cream, for serving

1. Coat a 9-inch pie plate with cooking spray. Pulse (grind) graham crackers and ¼ teaspoon salt in a food processor until finely ground. Add butter and pulse again to combine. Using a flat-bottomed glass or measuring cup, press the crumbs firmly into the bottom an sides of the pie plate. Freeze until set, about 15 minutes. NOTE:  skip this step if using a pre-made graham cracker crust.

2. Melt chocolate chips in a medium microwave-safe bowl, stirring every 30 seconds, until smooth. Let cool.

3. Whisk in the pumpkin puree.

4. Beat or blend cream cheese until creamy. Add vanilla, cinnamon, ginger, cloves, and remaining salt. Add pumpkin mixture, and beat to combine.

5. Pour filling into the pie crust, smoothing the top. Refrigerate at least 4 hours (or overnight). Serve topped with whipped cream. Yummy!
