Cheesecake is an all-time favorite.  Give it a fall twist by adding pumpkin.

Ingredients:

  • 1 eight ounce package of cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup canned pumpkin
  • 1 egg + 1 egg white, lightly beaten
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/8 teaspoon cloves
  • 1 store bought Graham Cracker crust

Directions:

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  In a separate bowl, beat cream cheese with an electric mixer until smooth. Stir in sugar and then egg mixture. Add pumpkin, maple syrup and spice and mix with a spoon. (no mixer at this point.)  Place mixture in pie crust. Bake in oven for 15 minutes.  Let cool 15 or 20 minutes. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

Tip:

  • To make mini cheesecakes, you can make your own crust out of 1 cup graham crackers, 2 teaspoons brown sugar, 1/3 stick melted butter, 1 teaspoon maple syrup, 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon and 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
  • When ready to serve, top with Cool Whip and sprinkle of cinnamon as a finishing touch!
