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!

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 gingersnap cookies. I made a batch with gingersnap cookies and they were delicious too. But really I love nuts! Go figure, some days I’m a little nuts myself ๐Ÿ™‚

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.

 

These have the “crust” put on TOP!!!! They taste fantastic and each time you dunk your spoon into the cheesecake you’re sure to get some of the nuts and graham cracker mixture.

The choice is yours how you’d like to serve them either way they taste great!

    1. Oh my goodness that will teach me to type things up at 1 am. I adjusted the recipes. Thanks so much for pointing that out. The recipe needs a cup of pumpkin puree ๐Ÿ™‚ It’s amazing how I can read things over and over and still miss errors!

    2. Thanks for the speedy reply! And, Diane, I do the same thing with grocery lists- I go to the grocery with 10 things on my list, check it three times before checking out, then get home having somehow forgotten the one thing on the list I needed most! Go figure!
