Oh my goodness, you will want to grab some jars quickly and whip up this recipe. You’ll love how quick it is!
Pumpkin No Bake Cheesecake with Pecan Crust
Trust me, if you love pumpkin…
you’ll love this.
If you love cheesecake, you’ll love this.
The crust is so incredible, you can even make a double batch and layer it within the cheesecake.
Yes, it’s that delicious!
Now, the really interesting thing is I gave of these to a non-pumpkin lover (I’m not sure how that is possible, but it’s true) and they LOVED it and they told me to hurry up and post it so they can make it!
I do think some people relate pumpkin to “pumpkin pie” and there are OH SO many more delicious recipes made with pumpkin that don’t taste like pumpkin pie at all. Take a look at my PUMPKIN E-book for more great pumpkin recipes.
In the bottoms of the jars is this delicious crust. It’s a mixture of pecans and graham crackers crumbs. It’s irresistible!
- ½ cup pecans
- ¼ cup graham cracker crumbs
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 2-8pz packages cream cheese (room temperature)
- 1 cup pumpkin puree
- ⅔ cup sugar
- ¼ cup heavy cream
- 2½ teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
- In food processor grind nuts, then add in graham cracker crumbs and butter and grind until fully blended.
- Place 2 tablespoons in the bottom of each jar.
- With a mixer and the wire whisk attachment, whip cream cheese until smooth and creamy.
- Then mix in the pumpkin puree.
- Add in sugar and mix well.
- Next pour in heavy cream and whip on high until well mixed and fluffy.

- Place mixture in a gallon plastic bag to fill jars without a mess.

Spoonful after spoonful of creamy delicious cheesecake with the fantastic flavor of pumpkin and the pecan crust is wonderful. Alternatively you can use graham cracker crumbs only or use crushed ginger snap cookies. I made a batch with ginger snap cookies and they were delicious too. But really I love nuts! Go figure, some days I’m a little nuts myself 🙂
No matter what you make them, they will be devoured.
These were made in 8 oz jars. This recipe makes 4. This is a generous serving. If you prefer a smaller serving size. They can be made in 4 oz jars or cups. This recipe can be easily doubled to accommodate more servings as well.
I piped buttercream frosting mixed with pumpkin pie spice on top of the cheesecakes. The lids fit on top nicely without messing up the rose design. You can see how I pipe the rose shape and buttercream recipe here.
