Pumpkin Cheesecake


Dessert date anyone? It’s perfect to share with that special someone next to the warmth of the chimney on a Fall evening. Who am I kidding? Have it at any time!

This cheesecake is divine and very easy to make. The bad part is having to wait. I got inspired by a recipe I found on the Bon Appétit magazine (November 2013). Below are the changes I made to create my own.

    Yes, please! I want to be on that date! I’m such a sucker for cheesecake…I have to limit myself / keep a good distance between it and me at all times. But with that caramel sauce? I’m all in! Thanks for sharing at FF! 😀
