There's something special about autumn desserts. We sure seem to crave them, especially when the temperature drops and the leaves start to change color. Well, here's a pumpkin cheesecake recipe that doesn't add a lot of work to your busy fall schedule. (And the best part is that you can enjoy this one any time of the year!)

What You'll Need:
  • 1 egg yolk plus 2 whole eggs
  • 1 prepared 10-inch graham cracker pie crust (extra-serving size)
  • 2 packages (8 ounces each) cream cheese, softened
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 (15-ounce) can 100% pure pumpkin (not pie filling)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
What To Do:
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Beat egg yolk and brush onto pie crust. Bake crust for 5 minutes; set aside.
     
  2. In a large bowl, combine 2 eggs, cream cheese, and sugar, and beat with an electric beater on medium speed until smooth. Add pumpkin, cinnamon, and ginger and continue beating until well blended.
     
  3. Spoon mixture into prepared pie crust and bake for 40 to 45 minutes, or until set.
     
  4. Let cool, then refrigerate for several hours or overnight.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

could you use splenda?

I made this last year for Thanksgiving. There was none left for the next day! My only gripe was that there was too much cinnamon taste. I plan on making it again this year... will just cut down on the spices. I would prefer to taste the cream cheesiness and pumpkin instead :)

I read you comment before making this a decided to cut back on the cinnamon. I only used a teaspoon and I think it worked really well. Thanks for the tip!

I don't think one ounce of pumpkin will affect this recipe--no one is going to open a second can to take out an ounce. Cooking is not rocket science.

professional chefs consider cooking an extension of chemistry-so; yes , chefs would consider cooking a science,...me: I just 'eye-ball" measurements(like Rachael Ray)....still comes out good...

CAN PUMPKIN DOES NOT COME 16 OZ ANYMORE RECIPES NEED TO BE FOR 15 OZ CAN

This is oh so true !!! get tired of recipes that you have to open another can or what ever for just a pinch of it. I also dislike that SOME RECIPES are in ounces and others are in grams or what ever. Let's put it together and use the good ole U.S.A. amounts !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
