It’s the time of year when everyone starts looking forward to the holiday meals and treats. Thanksgiving and Christmas offer opportunities to enjoy family, focus on what’s important, and yes, absolutely indulge in some of our favorite foods.

Like Pumpkin Cheesecake.

Just in case you’re looking for a holiday dessert recipe to impress your family and friends with this year, I’m sharing my easy Pumpkin Cheesecake recipe with you today.

Now let’s start baking!

Start by assembling your ingredients…

While it’s ultimately up to you, I always think quality ingredients make the biggest difference when baking.


Beat the cream cheese until soft…


Then add the pumpkin puree, sour cream, eggs, and spices and blend until smooth. Next, add the flour and vanilla, and again, beat until smooth.

Getting close…

Listen, you can make your crust if you want—and here’s a great recipe if so—but as a busy mama and wife, I’ll take a #bakinghack when I can get one.

Pour your batter into your pie crust.

Bake the pie in a preheated 350-degree oven for one hour. When the center is firm, remove and let cool for 15-20 minutes.

If you can’t wait, go ahead and grab a fork (and maybe some whipped cream!) Otherwise, refrigerate until you’re ready to serve. And then, ENJOY!
