How To Make Pumpkin Cheesecake with Pecan Crumble – Gluten Free

Posted on

This Pumpkin Cheesecake with its Pecan Crumble on top just screams holiday dessert. The cheesecake itself has that same dense silky texture we all love in a cheesecake but it also has the flavor of a pumpkin pie thrown into the mix. The pumpkin puree in the recipe takes up the volume of 2 additional blocks of cream cheese and trims a ton of calories and fat versus an ordinary New York cheesecake. The low fat cream cheese and sour cream save even more calories. And the crust is made from those delicious honey ginger cookies from my last video.

    Ok here is my review- I made this a few hours ago, although I am allergic to pecans I substituted the pecans with freshly made honey granola. This is absolutely delicious. I will slice up half of this and take to my neighbour as I am the only person in my household who enjoys pumpkin. Thank you again for this recipe. I may make it again around Christmas, if I do I’ll post a video response. This is one of the? few gluten free desserts I must say was actually delicious.

    It will be great for Thanksgiving. And I know that you’re keeping? an eye on your weight so this is good to make for a holiday where others will be around to eat it too so you won’t have a ton of leftovers. I ate way too much. Now find myself having to eat a lot of vegetable soup and smaller meals trying to make up for the extra calories.

    You’re right Lyndsay. I don’t notice the difference with light cream cheese in these recipes so it is an easy choice. Then you can splurge all the? extra calories saved on the pecan crumble top. lol

  24. EZGlutenFree

    Haha, There’s always room at? the table for cheesecake.

    Hi Eugenie. It is unsweetened pumpkin puree. I never tried it with fresh? pumpkin puree but the can stuff worked great. It’s a lot easier too.
