Paradise Pumpkin Pie

Here is my favorite pumpkin pie recipe. My mom makes this, and it just doesn't seem right now if there isn't any cream cheese.
1 8oz package cream cheese
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 egg
1 9 inch unbaked pastry shell
1 1/4 cups canned or cooked pumpkin
1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
Dash of salt
1 cup evaporated milk
2 eggs, slightly beaten
Maple syrup
Pecan halves

Combine softened cream cheese, sugar and vanilla, mixing until well blended. Add egg, mix well. Pour onto bottom of pastry shell. Combine remaining ingredients; mix well. Carefully pour over cream cheese mixture. Bake at 350 degrees 65 to 70 minutes or until done. Cool. Brush with maple syrup, decorate with nuts.
