These mini pumpkin cheesecakes are a perfect fall dessert. You will love the gingersnap crust too!
Happy day before Thanksgiving! I really had fun making these mini cheesecakes. Just the right size and the gingersnap crust was a nice change from graham crackers.
I'm a huge fan of mini desserts because then you can try more than one! I could not believe how easy these were.
Luckily I had a mini cheesecake pan .
What will you be serving as a Thanksgiving dessert? Do you make all the trimmings including a turkey? I'm craving the whole shebang! Turkey, gravy, stuffing, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes and of course dessert!
Have a Happy Thanksgiving!

Love these! How cute are they?! My husband LOVES cheesecakes, and I can't wait to make this soon. He doesn't like sharing a slice with me as I immediately attack the crust. However, since he's not a fan of ginger snaps( gasp!) I don't think he would mind..but then again these are so tiny to share..Hope you had a blessed Thanksgiving, Deb!
These look delicious! I'm pinning to my Yummy Pumpkin board.
Thanks for sharing on the Daily Blog Boost last week!

These are works of art, Deb, and they're going on my "to make" list, for sure. I'll have to invest in that pan, though. Just letting you know I'll be featuring these tomorrow night on BOTW!

I made these yesterday, using a Primal Blueprint/keto recipe for the crust. (!c almond meal, 1 cup pecan pieces, 1/2 cup butter, plus 1 t stevia - pulsed in food processor) This is a delicious recipe - turned out looking exactly like the picture. I am wondering how the 1/2 cup of pumpkin would translate into another non-pumpkin recipe. In other words, what might I substitute and have the same firm texture of the pumpkin cheesecakes?
Deb Attinella says
Oh boy, I'm not sure about that. I always kind of wondered if you pureed some apple filling if that would work - I may try that myself to see!
