Layered Pumpkin Cheesecake

Can you believe that my husband doesn’t like cream cheese (or yogurt or sour cream but that’s an entirely different story). I happen to love the stuff.  Especially when it’s made into a wonderfully creamy dessert. I’m not about to make a cheesecake for myself, though, since I know I would eat entirely too much of it. I indulge when I’m having company that enjoys it as much as I do or we are at friends’ houses who serve it.

My sister, Janna, found this recipe several years ago and adapted it and is sharing it with us today.

This layered pumpkin cheesecake is beautiful and easy and would be the perfect conclusion to your Christmas dinner. Not having a cheesecake pan isn’t a problem with this recipe – it uses a graham cracker crust in a pie pan. Purchase one ready made or check out this recipe to make it from scratch. Now I just need to invite a cheesecake lover over so I have an excuse to make one!

Layered Pumpkin Cheesecake. The perfect dessert to finish any meal. Uses a pie pan too - no special pan necessary!

    Looks delish! I love cheesecake and pumpkin pie. This Thanksgiving a friend make a pumpkin cheesecake that sadly wasn’t as good as it sounded. I’ll have to give this a try. Pinned.

      It is a great combination! If only I could get my husband to like cheesecake so I can make it more often. 🙂 I’m thinking there will just have to be mommy daughter dates or making and eating cheesecake in the feature. Thanks for pinning! Have a great day.
