Yield: 8 servings
1 Graham Cracker Crust prepared in a 9-inch pie pan
1 1/2 cups silken tofu, well drained
1 cup soy cream cheese
1 cup canned pumpkin
1 cup granulated sugar
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Combine all the filling ingredients in a food processor or blender and process until smooth and creamy. Pour into the cooled crust. Bake for 55 minutes, or until lightly browned and the edges are set. Cool, cover loosely, and refrigerate for 8 to 12 hours before serving. Store leftovers loosely covered in the refrigerator.
