Layered pumpkin pie

I am trying to locate a specific recipe from the Denver junior league cookbook: Colorado Cache
I actually own this cookbook, but having moved in August it must be buried in the boxes that occupy one entire bay of my garage - stacked to the ceiling! I have tried to search those that are easily accessible, but no luck...and Thanksgiving is NEXT week! If anyone has the recipe I would be so very grateful! It is absolutely the best I have every tasted!

  1. I have that cookbook, but my version (purchased in the early 1990s in Denver) doesn't have that particular recipe. Mine has a 1978 copyright. I'm wondering if there is a later version? Sorry I can't help.

    1. I believe that it might be under cheesecakes...because there was the crust layer, a cheescake layer, a layer that may have been a whipped topping, and I know for a fact that it was pumpkin...
      I purchase the cookbook because of this recipe!

        I still don't see it in my cookbook. I read through all of the desserts, even looking to see if there was a variation on one that included pumpkin. The Junior League of Denver has published five cookbooks. Are you sure it wasn't in Creme de Colorado? I don't have that one, unfortunately.

          maybe my friend adapted one of their cheesecake recipes...if I can find my OLD address book I may try to track her down...haven't talked to her in over 10 years; we lost track...
          oh well, guess that explains why I couldn't find any mention of it on the internet...
          It was really, really good! Best I've ever had :(
          Thank you for looking for me!

              I'm curious. Where did you find it?

              1. re: ddavis

                I had written it on a recipe card before I actually got the cookbook for Christmas. I still have not been able to verify that it was from Colorado Cache or if it had been a variation or adaptation...will be glad when I find the box that has the rest of my cookbooks!
