No Bake Pumpkin Cheesecake
Whether you are looking for a holiday dessert, potluck recipe, or a treat to serve up your family, this cheesecake might just be calling your name.
📌Main Ingredients Used
- Pumpkin Puree | Don’t confuse this with pumpkin pie mix. Pumpkin puree is simply pureed pumpkin in a can. Then pair with the warm pumpkin spices and it brings so much flavor to this cheesecake.
- Cream Cheese | Ensure your cream cheese is room temperature. This will allow you to mix it properly for that velvety smooth texture.
- Cool Whip | This is going to help give you a light and fluffy texture. Along with the sugar, it is perfectly sweet, creamy, and light enough to enjoy.
🍴How To Make
In a large mixing bowl mix your cream cheese, pumpkin pie filling, nutmeg, allspice, pumpkin pie spice, and sugar.
Blend with stand mixer until smooth.
Add in tub of cool whip, and blend again until smooth.
In a food processor, process entire package of graham crackers until smooth.
Add in melted butter and process again until it is the consistency of wet sand.
Press graham cracker mixture firmly into the bottom of a cheesecake pan.
Pour pumpkin batter on top and smooth out.
Refrigerate for at least 3 hours.
Top with caramel and nuts.
Serve and enjoy!
Can I Use A Different Type of Crust
I think gingersnaps or even Golden Oreos could make a great alternative to a graham cracker crust. This homemade pumpkin dessert is able to be changed up a bit so get creative.
How to Store
If you have leftover pie, you will want to store your no bake pumpkin cheesecake pie in the fridge covered tightly. Due to the dairy in the recipe, it will spoil at room temperature.
Feel free to store in the fridge for up to 5 days.
Does This Cheesecake Freeze
Go right ahead and store any leftover pumpkin cheesecake in the freezer. Cover and store properly for up to three months.
You can pre-slice the cheesecake so when you get a craving you can pull out one slice. Otherwise just place the whole cheesecake in the fridge to thaw out overnight.
