A silky, creamy pumpkin cheesecake that anyone can make!

I love a good cheesecake and this one makes you long for your next bite! I have yet to make a pumpkin flavour dessert this year and frankly I’m pretty late to the game. That’s okay though because this recipe really hit the spot. Not being able to get together with people has made me less inclined to bake desserts this year… but seeing everyone’s American Thanksgiving posts made me crave pumpkin. This pumpkin cheesecake recipe is super easy that even the most novice bakers can make this delectable dessert.

The base is made with a graham crumb crust and the cheesecake filling (using Philadelphia Cream Cheese of course) has a nice and light pumpkin flavour. This is a great alternative to the classic pumpkin pie and can be topped with some whipped cream if you’re wanting some add sweetness.
