Pumpkin Spice Cheesecake

Pumpkin Spice Cheesecake Good Cheap Eats

I didn’t enjoy pumpkin pie as a child. I have no idea why. When my mother-in-law made this streusel-topped pumpkin pie, I fell in love. I didn’t think anything else could take its place.

Until now.

The kids were a little skeptical when I said that I was making a pumpkin cheesecake. They love pumpkin pie, and they love cheesecake. They figured that the parts were better than the sum of the parts.

But, now they are believers.

There’s enough cheesecake in this dessert to justify its cheesecake status. Likewise, there’s enough pumpkin and spice to make it pumpkiny. As my tween would say, “It’s like a pumpkin pie and a cheesecake got married. This is their baby.”

Or something like that.

Regardless, it is delicious. Great for dessert, even better for breakfast the next day. Or lunch. Ask me how I know.

  1. G’day! LOVE pumpkin pies, true!
    Your photo makes this recipe so mouth watering too!
    Cheers! Joanne

  2. The timeliness of this… Costco had samples of their bakery’s pumpkin cheesecake a few days ago. It was DELISH. It reminded me that I had not made one in ages, and caused me to wonder if I still had a recipe for one or if I needed to go searching. Guess I’ll start with yours!

  3. Yum! This looks delicious. I’ve made pumpkin cheesecake before, but it required baking in a water bath, which was more hassle than I wanted. I’m looking forward to trying your recipe!

  4. I’m sure this will make my husbands day. His two favorite desserts combined in one is sure to be a winner!

  5. My springform finally bit the dust. Anyone tried with a cake pan? Pie plate?? I’m not worried about presentation, just taste!

  6. My husband is the cheesecake maker in our house, we have an entire cookbook of only cheesecake recipes. We’ve made a 10-inch pumpkin one before that’s very similar to this one! Ours calls for a shortbread crust instead of graham cracker. Sooooo good this time of year!
