Pumpkin Cheesecake

Sharing is caring!

Make this Pumpkin Cheesecake with graham cracker crust to compliment your Thanksgiving Dinner. Or, just because you love pumpkin and cheesecakes.

You do have to cook this one, unlike my Apple NO BAKE Cheesecake, or my White Chocolate Coconut Cream Cheesecake, or the huge, great for crowds, Oranges n Cream Cheesecake.  If you prefer no bake, then go check them out.

How to you make pumpkin cheesecake from scratch?

This is so much easier than you think. You will need cream cheese, pumpkin puree, eggs and spices for the center. Graham crackers and butter for the crust. Then bake.

What is the difference between cheesecake and New York Cheesecake?

New York cheesecakes is heavy on the cream cheese to make them richer and denser.

What is better…baked or unbaked cheesecake?

Depends on your preference. I prefer no bake for several reasons. You make it and stick it in the fridge. It’s not heating up the kitchen. Which you may want at certain times of the year. AND, I like the taste and texture of the no bake cheesecakes.


Which do you prefer….cooked or no bake?
