No-Bake Pumpkin Cheesecake Filling

Baker Bettie Cheesecake, Custards/Puddings/Mousses, Fall Recipes, Halloween, Holidays, Sweets, Thanksgiving 4 Comments

Why bake a cheesecake when you can make a no-bake pumpkin cheesecake?! This pumpkin cheesecake is light and airy and so much quicker to make than a baked cheesecake!  Use the filling for a full cheesecake or fill individual muffin cups for mini cheesecakes. You could also use it to make a pumpkin cheesecake parfait!  I distinctly remember the first time I ever baked a cheesecake. It was early on in my baking days, probably about 9 years ago. I didn’t yet know much about the intricacies of baking, but I could read and therefore I could follow a recipe. …

Baker Bettie Bars, Brownies, Cheesecake, Sweets 6 Comments

Cheesecake cookie dough bars are exactly as wonderful as they sound. While the bars are in fact baked, the cookie dough layer stays perfectly fudgy while the cheesecake layer is velvety smooth. These little gems were a baking happy accident. I had no intentions whatsever of making what these turned out to be.

I was going to get up early on Saturday morning and have those babies …
