With a buttery pecan oat crust and sweet maple glaze, this warm pumpkin infused cheesecake is the perfect addition to any Thanksgiving menu. And it's gluten free too!
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 is the perfect pie to serve up at your Thanksgiving feast!
It's gluten free!
This isn't your ordinary cheesecake. Unlike most cheesecakes, which typically have a graham cracker crust, this cheesecake features an easy prep gluten-free pie crust.
Pecans, oats and brown sugar form a gorgeous golden brown crust with incredible flavor. No one would ever guess it's gluten-free!
