With a buttery pecan oat crust and sweet maple glaze, this warm pumpkin infused cheesecake is the perfect addition to any Thanksgiving menu.
Gluten-Free Pumpkin Maple Cheesecake
I love a good pumpkin pie, but if I had to choose between this cheesecake and a slice of pie, the cheesecake would win every time.
The subtle tartness of cream cheese, combined with the warm flavors of pure pumpkin and sweet maple syrup make a heavenly dessert that is rich without being too sweet.
This isn’t your ordinary cheesecake. Unlike most cheesecakes, which typically have a graham cracker crust, this cheesecake features an easy prep gluten-free crust. Pecans, oats and brown sugar form a gorgeous golden brown crust with incredible flavor.
No one would guess it’s gluten-free!
Add a touch of class
When I first started cooking, I used to leaf through my mom’s cookbooks. I was always a bit intimidated by pictures of gorgeous cheesecakes. Then one day, I worked up the nerve to try one.
Trust me, even a beginning cook can make this gourmet quality cheesecake by following the step by step instructions below. Why not surprise your family and add a touch of class to your Thanksgiving menu this year?
Or, just make one for the fun of it. This cheesecake is too delicious to be enjoyed just once a year!
