To make the Pioneer Woman's pumpkin cream pie, blend 15 graham cracker sheets with 1/2 cup of powdered sugar and one stick of melted butter to prepare the crust. Press this crust mixture into a pie plate. While the crust bakes at 300 degrees Fahrenheit for 10 minutes, heat one box of vanilla pudding mix in a saucepan with 1 cup of half-and-half and 1/2 cup of heavy cream. Season the mixture with a pinch each of cinnamon, nutmeg and ground cloves. Bring the mixture to a boil.
Once the pudding thickens, remove it from the heat and stir in 1/2 cup plus 3 tablespoons of pumpkin puree. While the pudding chills, beat together 2 tablespoons of brown sugar and 1/2 cup of heavy cream and fold the mixture into the pudding. Pour the filling into the crust and chill the pie overnight before serving.
