I partnered with Pick ‘n Save to bring you this recipe. Thank you for supporting the brands that make Lemon Tree Dwelling possible!
Does anyone else come from a family like mine? Where the dessert table is always *at least* as big as the meal?
Seriously. I have never once been to a family function where there was only one dessert option. Usually it’s more like 3 or 4….or, depending on the day, 6 or 7!?
There’s no hiding the fact that my family is dessert obsessed….which is both amazing and also incredibly dangerous. Because sometimes you just can’t choose between them. And if you don’t have to? Sometimes you might end up with a “small” piece of each.
Of course, there are always some obvious choices. Homemade over store bought. Vanilla over chocolate…especially when it comes to cake. And always….always….cheesecake.
I’m a HUGE fan of cheesecake and always have been. It’s so rich and creamy and satisfying, and when you get down to it, the possibilities for it really are endless.
And let’s not forget the amazingness of a basic cheesecake. No fuss, no frills. This No-Bake Cheesecake Recipe? Yes, please! Why bake if you don’t have to!?
But. When we’re celebrating the holidays, and cheesecake is on the table, and so is pumpkin pie….I must admit the choice is never obvious. It’s not a holiday without pumpkin pie, but cheesecake is definitely my favorite.
Hence….these Mini Pumpkin Cheesecakes.
Mini so you can still enjoy the rest of what’s being offered. Pumpkin + Cheesecake because BOTH are necessary elements of a holiday dessert table.
These Mini Pumpkin Cheesecakes really are the best of both worlds. They combine all the flavors of pumpkin pie in a rich, creamy cheesecake. And let’s not forget about that graham cracker crust.
Top them with whipped cream and cinnamon and you literally have the ULTIMATE holiday dessert…in bite sized form.
And you can find everything you need to make these little cuties at Pick ‘n Save! From the graham cracker crumbs to the Smidge & Spoon sugar to the Roundy’s eggs, produced right here in Wisconsin.
I love the fact that Pick ‘n Save is a one stop shop and that they always have everything I need. With the holidays quickly approaching….it’s exactly what I need!
