No Bake Pumpkin Cheesecake Recipe October 7, 2015 Although the weather is still warm, fall is just about here. The surest sign is pumpkin spice beginning to pop up all around, so today we’ve put together a quick and easy dessert recipe that will warm you up to fall and ease you into the annual pumpkin craze. And did we mention it’s a no-bake recipe? Ingredients: 10 Graham Crackers, crushed into crumbs 1 tablespoon unsalted butter, melted 8 ounces cream cheese, softened 1 cup pure pumpkin puree 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract 1/2 cup sugar 1 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice 1 large tub (12 oz.) whipped topping (Cool Whip) Directions: 1. Crush Graham Crackers and mix with butter. Press onto the bottom of jar or serving glass. 2. With a mixer, beat the cream cheese until smooth, then add the pumpkin, vanilla, sugar, and pumpkin pie spice. Mix it all together until it’s creamy. 3. Add half of the whipped topping or whipped cream and gently stir it together. 4. To assemble, spoon a layer of your pumpkin cheesecake mix over the cookies in each jar and top with whipped cream if desired. Maybe the very best part about this recipe is that they’re not only easy to make, but equally as cute as they are tasty. Add the recipe into a mason jar, and it makes the perfect gift. Think hostess gift, housewarming, “welcome to the neighborhood”, teacher or a “just because” appreciation gift. Just tie a twill ribbon, and add a fall leaf, like we did. Enjoy!
