One of my favorite things about fall is all of the amazing Pumpkin recipes! Baked into a pie or even as a quick Pumpkin inspired snack, pumpkin just screams warm cozy fall to me!

This Pumpkin Cheesecake recipe should’ve been named easier than pie, it’s one of the quickest you’ll ever find!  It literally takes just a few minutes to prepare; just toss all of the ingredients into the blender and pour it into a pie crust and bake!  Just like that, it turns out perfect every time!

When pouring this into the crust, you’re going to want to ensure it’s about 1/4″ from the top so it doesn’t overflow.  If you have a little bit of extra batter left in your blender,  just pour it into lined mini muffin pans mini and bake about 18 minutes or until set! Perfect little bite sized testers!

I’ve used both homemade or store bought graham crusts in the recipe with perfect results! Pumpkin Pie Spice is a mixture I don’t use very often so I usually just mix up a small batch at home in the fall since I have all of the ingredients on hand anyhow! I top this with whipped topping or homemade whipped cream and a little pinch of fresh nutmeg.

Things you’ll need for this recipe: 

*Graham Crust  *Canned Pumpkin *Pie Plate *

  1. Second time making this!! We love it!! Used 1 tablespoon of real maple syrup instead of the karo.
    (never have it on hand) Yum!

  2. This is so good! Even the pumpkin pie haters in my family LOVE this desert. It is so light and creamy, I highly recommend it.5 stars

  3. I’m sorry dear, but “Bake for 45 minutes. Cool 4 hours in the fridge before serving.” is NOT AN INGREDIENT

  4. I’m going to try this sounds really good, but cooling in time Should definitely be counted in as the total time because I got this thinking that it was gonna be a quick last minute thing which hopefully I still should have time because I want to make it but it definitely should be included in

    1. Sorry for the confusion, we’ve updated the recipe to reflect the cooling time. Let us know how it works out for you!
