Bake in a hot oven 200°C for 15 minutes. Sprinkle chocolate melts over warm pastry and spread to cover the base of the pastry shell. Allow to cool completely.
  3. COMBINE the pumpkin, PHILLY, eggs, sugar and spices in a food processor and process until smooth. Pour into the prepared base. Bake in a hot oven 200°C for 10 minutes. Reduce temperature to 150°C and bake a further 30-35 minutes until just set. Cool.
