Cream Cheese Pumpkin Pie with a Nut Crust

Greeting Blissful and Domestic readers! My name is Samantha H and I blog over at CustomTaste.blogspot.com. I have been a huge and avid reader of Danielle’s since the very beginning of my blogging days so when she was looking for guest posters I pretty much jumped at the chance. My blog focuses on easy, healthy and frugal meals that anyone can make. I also dabble in helpful tips and what is going on in the food world. So come and pay me a visit so you can see for yourself that eating health does not have to be hard on you or on your wallet.

Tricks
*Make sure your butter and cream cheese are room temperature or you will end up with chunks in the pie
*For the coconut milk I use the canned kind. If you put it in the fridge before using it will get creamy and make the pie super light feeling. My brand is Thai.
