Pumpkin Cheesecake (NO BAKE)

Sharing is caring!

Happy Thanksgiving!!
No Bake Pumpkin Cheesecake with Gingersnaps!

I hope all of you are taking the time today and enjoying what you are truly thankful for this year.

However, if you are here reading my blog today, I’ve got a treat for you. For those of you who might have to make that last minute dessert…or you might have dropped your pumpkin pie and you don’t know what to do. Or you still have extra cans of pumpkin, and are looking for what else you can make this weekend.

No Bake Pumpkin Cheesecake with Gingersnaps!

This recipe is for you.

Aren’t these little dishes adorable? I found them last week at TJ Maxx and knew I had to use them for something. This recipe makes one pie PLUS 8 of these little dishes (they are about 1 cup sized). Yes, it makes a lot of filling (or you could make TWO pies). But you could also serve this cheesecake as a dip, it’s that versatile. You can fill a bowl with it and serve it with fruit, gingersnaps, pound cake, grahams, you name it! Yum.
