This 5-star pumpkin cheesecake layers pumpkin and cream cheese for a delicious display, combining the best of two treats. The pumpkin component here may come out of a can, but I don't see that's anything to be apologetic about. By all means, make your own purée if you prefer. Not so sure that pumpkin cheesecake is better than pumpkin pie? Test the waters with this classic recipe that has the perfect. Pumpkin pie has never tasted or looked! This has to be one of my favorite recipes from Jenn. For the Caramel sauce, I used raw local honey instead of corn syrup. It will just take a little more effort to make the crust— you can crush the cookies by hand. LOL Thanks for your great recipes and thanks, too, to all the other reviewers with their great input! The texture was extremely light and creamy. Pissed off as I have made many cheese cakes and I have never had a failure until now. Served at a party and it was immediately gone! Glad you enjoyed it! I want to make one for everyone I know. Feed Profile Favorites Friends Shopping List Settings Sign In or Sign Up. I love pumpkin cheesecake. I also made it for family at Christmas and again rave reviews!!! Add the eggs and mix just until incorporated do not overmix! So delicious and creamy! Chopped with Grill Game. This is the BEST thing that has ever come out of my kitchen. I would like to make this for an upcoming dinner party in a couple of weeks, would like to be able to make the sauce well in advance, if possible.
