I realize that I may be offending a lot of people here, but I really don't like pumpkin pie. There, I've said it. For the small, similarly-minded minority still reading, here's a recipe that contains the words "pumpkin" and "pie", but is a total departure from the dish as you know it. The key is in the whoopie.
In this recipe from Baked co-owners Matt Lewis and Renato Poliafito, pumpkin pie filling is baked into moist, spiced domes, which are then smooshed together with tangy cream cheese frosting. Cream cheese conquers all, the most confirmed fearers of pumpkin pie notwithstanding.
