Pie baking question, cooking temp and time

Bazel | Nov 26, 201408:24 AM     3

I have found a recipe for a layered cream cheese and pumpkin pie. I like the idea of this pie since my gathering is small and I have some who like cheesecake and some who like pumpkin pie - sort of best of both world's in one dish! Plus the layers mean a more picky guest can just eat the part they like.

But here are my questions - the recipe calls for either a prepared pie crust or graham cracker and the cooking time is just 35 to 40 minutes at 325. This says to me that the "prepared" crust is a precooked pie crust as I don't see a fresh pie crust cooking in 35 minutes.

I would like to make this with a homemade crust. Should I blind bake it and then follow this recipe? Can I put it all together a bake it like a pumpkin pie?

Please help, I suck at baking but I'll be damned if I am going to serve something that is store bought so I am willing to try! And specific suggestions, with baking temp and times, would be appreciated!

Thanks,

Bz
