7 Great Ideas for Pumpkin Cheesecake


A roundup of pumpkin cheesecakes shared with the Great Idea Thursdays link party.

It's that time of year when everyone will get sick and tired of seeing pumpkin and pumpkin spice recipes.  It has always been tradition, in my family, to have pumpkin pie for Thanksgiving dessert.  I made my first pumpkin pie this year and it turned out great but I used a store bought pie crust.  While I was eating my pumpkin pie I ended up scraping all the filling (and real whipped cream) off of the crust.  I don't really like regular pie crust I much prefer cookie crumb or graham cracker crusts.  Maybe next year I will see how pumpkin pie tastes on a cookie crust.  So, for my roundup today I thought I'd share a pumpkin pie like dessert that doesn't use traditional pie crust...Pumpkin Cheesecake.  It has the pumpkin theme that is so popular around Thanksgiving but you don't need traditional pie crust.

All of these recipes were shared at Great Idea Thursdays link party.  Come join the fun Wednesday @ 6pm EST through Sunday @ 11:59pm EST.  You can find many more pumpkin recipes and other great ideas on our Great Idea Thursdays Pinterest Board.
