These Mini Pumpkin Cheesecakes are the perfect fall dessert for any occasion. It’s a scrumptious cheesecake with the perfect hint of pumpkin.
Great for any party!
Since I had a lot of fun making and showing you all pumpkin recipes last week, I decided to continue Pumpkin Week for one more week. There is just too much to share with you for me to keep it only 1 week. I still have a few pumpkin desserts that I want to share with you. I did a question poll on my Facebook. Are you following me? I asked everyone what was their favorite pumpkin dessert. Everyone but a few picked Pumpkin Cheesecake. I did get pumpkin cinnamon rolls, which I need to make those because they sound dreamy. Yumm!
I have to be honest and say that I have never made an actual cheesecake before. I know, I know. How is that even possible when I have this blog and all of you wonderful readers. Can I tell you a secret, but promise you won’t judge me. I’m not a huge fan of cheesecake. I like it, but its one of those things that I can have two bites of and be done. Now I have to say that these pumpkin cheesecakes kinda of changed me. I am thinking that with the pumpkin and the graham cracker crust, it took cheesecake to a whole new level for me.
I took these to my hubby’s work because I actually made two batches just to make sure they tasted perfect for you. I felt so loved at his work because everyone was saying that these we top-notch. I wanted to tell them that of course they were. I made two batches just to make sure the recipe was perfect for all my readers. Don’t wanna give you anything, but perfection, right?!
Back to these cheesecakes. So you start out by mixing graham crackers and some pecans together to make the crust. Now I didn’t have mini cheesecakes pans so I just used a muffin pan with paper liners. You could use whatever you like. Then mixing cream cheese with pumpkin, a lil ol’ egg, some nutmeg and other stuff. You have this great mixture. It smelled amazing. I could have licked my fingers all day. After I baked them, I knew I needed something to top them off. Wanted to make them look pretty. So I whipped up (no pun intended) some whip cream and made some Carmel sauce to finish it off. Perfect, delicious and tasty mini pumpkin cheesecakes!
