Our Best Pumpkin Cheesecake is better than Cheesecake Factory. Rich, dense, and high. Creamy, smooth, and satiny. Thick gingersnap crust. The flavors of fall spices, pumpkin, and cream cheese meld together like no other.
Best Pumpkin Cheesecake with Gingersnap crust
The upcoming holidays are making their way to the forefront of people’s minds and plans. Busy season, celebratory season…that time of year is just around the corner.
Not wanting to get overly caught up in the hustle and bustle of holiday fanfare, I’ve made an effort in recent years to slow down enough to truly enjoy the beautiful holiday season.
Many of my friends have taken to Facebook to share a piece of gratitude each day of November, in honor of Thanksgiving. I haven’t jumped on that bandwagon, but I have been knuckling down to being present in the moments. And noticing the blessings in the moments.
Not that I’ve been altogether successful, because I’m not naturally slow and unhurried. Like most of you, I wear many hats, including pumpkin cheesecake recipe maker.
Thanksgiving around the corner
I’m indescribably thankful to have read (and re-read) my favorite book that’s perfect for November: One Thousand Gifts. There’s a reason there are that many reviews for it. It’s written by NY Times Bestseller by Ann Voskamp, who also authors the inspirational blog, A Holy Experience. I’m now reading her second book, The Broken Way.
And no, this is not an advertisement or anything sponsored. I just can’t possibly stroll through Thanksgiving season without sharing what I’m reading and loving this month with you.
Um…and eating too. 😋 Let’s dive into the best pumpkin cheesecake recipe you’ll ever need or want. It’s adapted from an old Bon Apetit recipe I saved in my files years ago. Once you taste this, you’ll discover that Cheesecake Factory’s pumpkin cheesecake recipe isn’t nearly as delicious as the one you made yourself.
This is truly a New York style pumpkin cheesecake recipe that’s worth every single bite.
Velvety Smooth Pumpkin Cheesecake
By New York style pumpkin cheesecake, we mean: gloriously rich, dense, and high.
Creamy, smooth, and satiny. Thick gingersnap crust. The flavors of fall spices, pumpkin, and cream cheese meld together like no other.
Please don’t forget the stabilized whipped cream that guarantees your whipped cream won’t get watery and lose shape while waiting to be gobbled up.
Happy November 🙂
