Do you love pumpkin? Do you love cheesecake? If you answered “yes” to either of these questions, you should seriously consider making this pumpkin cheesecake.

I happen to love pumpkin cheesecake. It’s up there with my favorite desserts of all time, and it makes a great Thanksgiving dessert. I have made a pumpkin yogurt cheesecake recipe before, and loved it, but when Agnes Devereux agreed to share her recipe, I couldn’t contain my happiness. You see, I’ve admired The Village Tearoom’s pumpkin cheesecake from afar for several years now (yes, I stare at it in the dessert case each fall whenever I’m in the restaurant), but I’ve never had the pleasure of eating it.

In the interest of full disclosure, the pumpkin cheesecake in the photos was not made by me. I did make the recipe, but then last minute decided to freeze mine so we can have it as one of our Thanksgiving desserts (I froze the cheesecake in the crust and plan to add the topping and caramel sauce on Thanksgiving Day). So I popped into the restaurant (a definite benefit of living only 10 minutes away) and bought the slice you see here for the photos. Then I ate it. So I know it’s good!

It’s not just good, though. It’s great. It’s the best pumpkin cheesecake I’ve tasted by far. Try it and I am sure you’ll agree!

    […] feed!The first time I made Indian Pudding was for dessert last Thanksgiving. Because I am serving this pumpkin cheesecake, I decided not to make Indian Pudding again this year. But I love this dessert so much that I made […]

    Recipe for caramel is not right. Mine turned into a crystalized mess, almost ruining the pan. Followed recipe exactly. Trying another caramel recipe – this time I won’t be whisking…

    Sorry the caramel did not work out for you. The recipe above came from a restaurant… I’ll look into what may have happened to cause the situation you described :(
