This pie is anything but basic thanks to its dreamy pumpkin-cheesecake filling and chocolate cookie crust. A dark chocolate glaze doesn't hurt either.

Rebecca, It's probably due to them using salted butter. Also, there is a lot of sodium in cookies and chocolate. Plus you have 1/4 tsp. salt. I checked my cream cheese package and it says there is 90 mg. sodium per 2 tablespoons, which equals 8 tablespoons total for 720 mg sodium. They sneak in sodium everywhere! I have been on a "no-sodium added" diet for about 10 years. I know it's disheartening to see a high sodium count on food items, but that's the reality of it all.... Sue

This is absolutely delicious and decadent!! We simply loved this version of a pumpkin cheesecake pie! I'm wondering why in the nutrition notes, the sodium is so dang HIGH?? I always use unsalted butter and I didn't notice huge sodium amounts on my cream cheese, or pumpkin, so how did we get here from there? Thanks for any help you can give me on this! Rebecca*
