Mini Pumpkin Cheesecakes will bring joy to any Fall get-together. You won't be able to resist.
Cheesecake has always been one of my favorite desserts. Which makes the fact that I never bake them a little strange. Don’t get me wrong – I buy the heck out of them. But baking is a whole different ballgame.
Did you know that cheesecakes are incredibly fickle? It’s true! I’ve read so many different instructions when it comes to cheesecake – water bath, no water bath, cold oven, a sprinkle of pixie dust. I don’t even know, you guys. But dessert shouldn’t be this complicated. I mean, who does cheesecake think it is? Katherine Heigl?
Most cheesecake recipes require like twenty eight packages of cream cheese. How is that even possible? Do people know how much cream cheese COSTS? Why does already made cheesecake cost less than baking one yourself? That’s the opposite of how things are supposed to work.
As it turns out, the solution to my cheesecake drama has been right under my nose all along. Mini cheesecakes! Okay, I don’t really have mini cheesecakes under my nose, but I have heard of them and seen them around, so you know what I mean.
These mini pumpkin cheesecakes are the answer to my prayers. Not my Ryan Gosling prayers, or my no wrinkles prayers, just my cheesecake prayers, mind you. But I’ll take it. And they are pretty darn spectacular.
Not only do they whip up in a snap with no pixie dust required, but they’re absolutely perfect – creamy, pumpkin-ey, and spicy with a ginger snap crust. If these aren’t the perfect Fall treat, we may need to stop being friends. They’re also perfect for sharing -- individual servings for the win!
