Pumpkin Cheesecake.

November 1, 2011 by Carolina

As a celebration of Fall my department instituted Pumpkin Mondays. Every Monday a few of us bring pumpkin goods for all of us in the marketing department to enjoy. This week I decided to make pumpkin cheesecake for the department & boy was it delicious. First off, you really can’t go wrong with pumpkin as the main ingredient, am I right or am I right? Since I already enjoyed a couple of pumpkin spice lattes I decided to keep the pumpkin theme going. This pie would be great on Thanksgiving!

Ingredients (makes 1 cheesecake)

9″ graham cracker pie crust

6 oz cream cheese, softened

2 eggs

1 1/2 cups white sugar

1/2 can canned pumpkin (about 3/4 cup)

1/4 cup flour

1/2 tsp cinammon

1/2 tsp nutmeg

Preheat over to 350F. In a bowl, beat softened cream cheese, eggs, sugar & pumpkin until fully integrated. Add the dry ingredients: flour, cinammon & nutmeg & continue mixing until fully combined. Pour cheesecake mix into the graham cracker shell & bake for 60 minutes.

Let pie cool before serving. I served mine with a side of pumpkin seeds (I love the junxtaposition of sweet & salty), topped it with whipped cream. Fantastic!

What’s your favorite cheesecake?
