How do you make No Bake Pumpkin Cheesecake?
Start by crushing the ginger snaps and combining with melted butter. Divide the mixture into 6 (4) oz. glass cups, pat down and place in refrigerator until filling is made.
In a medium bowl, combine the cream cheese, vanilla, puree, brown sugar, and the spices - pumpkin spice, nutmeg and cinnamon. Mix well then fold in by hand 1 cup of whipped topping (i.e, Cool Whip)
Spoon or pipe the filling onto the prepared cups.
Top with the remaining whipped topping and add sprinkles or caramel sauce if desired.
These can be eaten immediately or let set up for an hour in the refrigerator.
Can you make no bake cheesecake ahead of time?
Yes, you could make these up a day in advance and cover the cups (minus the whipped topping) with plastic wrap. When you are ready to serve, add the whipped topping and sprinkles.
Other tips for making no bake pumpkin cheesecake:
I used ginger snaps for the base, but these could easily be swapped out for graham crackers or vanilla wafers.
Be sure to use pumpkin puree and not pumpkin pie filling since you will add spices.
If you would prefer not use cool whip, you could substitute heavy whipped cream that you have whipped up (in an equal amount).
