I hope this Pumpkin Cheesecake with Sticky Toffee Sauce goes on your Thanksgiving holiday menu this year!
I love this Pumpkin Cheesecake with Toffee Sticky Sauce is the perfect Fall and Thanksgiving dessert!
I think one of my most favorite holiday desserts is the infamous and classic Pumpkin Pie. I know that may sound like a shock to most of you considering all the desserts that are presented on Thanksgiving. However, it is true. I like the simplicity, the density, and the flavor of Pumpkin Pie. It isn’t too sweet and it does just enough to satisfy the sweet craving I have after the huge holiday dinner. In fact, I think I am a big fan of, just about, anything pumpkin (except Pumpkin Roll). What better way to combine the concept of pumpkin pie into a cheesecake?!
The first time I made Pumpkin Cheesecake I was in college. I came home for Thanksgiving and I wanted to add a new dessert to the rest of the usual suspects. After I made that cheesecake, I kid you not, I, the person who made it, did not get a single slice. The family loved it! Nevermind if the baker wanted to try her own work. They were only looking out for themselves. Several years later bring us to this moment. That slice that you see coming out of that delicious cake was my first piece, and although I didn’t eat the entire piece (watching that gut) I enjoyed the few bites I had. That toffee sauce gives the cheesecake a nice nutty overlay that compliments the pumpkin so well. Not to mention this is an extremely easy dessert to make. If you are going to make this for the holiday or another holiday event, it is best if you make it the day before so it is completely chilled the next day. I hope you enjoy this cheesecake and your holiday!
