       4 oz Cream cheese; softened
       1    Egg
       1 tb Sugar
     1/2 ts Vanilla
       1 c  Pumpkin; canned

   In a small saucepan combine caramels and the 1/2 cup milk. Cook and stir
   over low heat until caramels are melted and mixture is smooth. Reserve 2
   tablespoons of the caramel mixture for topping; spread remaining caramel
   mixture in unbaked pie shell. Set aside. In a medium mixing bowl beat cream
   cheese until fluffy. Add 1 egg, 1 tablespoon sugar and the vanilla. Beat
   until fluffy. Pour cream cheese mixture over caramel mixture in pie shell.
   Bake in a 375 oven for 10 minutes or until just set. Meanwhile in a mixing
   bowl, stir together pumpkin, remaining egg, 1/3 cup sugar, cinnamon, salt,
   ginger and cloves until smooth; stir in 3/4 cup milk. Carefully spoon the
   pumpkin mixture over the cream cheese layer. Cover edge of pie with foil.
   Bake for 20 minutes. Uncover edge of pie and bake about 20 minutes more or
   until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool on a wire
   rack. Just before serving, in a small mixing bowl beat whipping cream and
   the 2 tablespoons sugar until soft peaks form. Spoon dollops of whipped
   cream on top of pie and drizzle with reserved caramel mixture. Makes 8
   servings. Farmer’s Insurance Friendly Exchange magazine, Spring 1993
