Mini Pumpkin Pecan Gingersnap Cheesecakes are topped with homemade salted caramel sauce and whipped cream create one of the most delicious cheesecakes you’ll ever eat.
As far as I’m concerned, it’s the most wonderful time of year. The air is crisp, there’s the smell of bonfires in the evening, and I’ve got the opportunity to make pumpkin and apple everything to my heart’s content.
That’s where the idea for these Mini Pumpkin Pecan Gingersnap Cheesecakes with Salted Caramel Sauce came from. Sure, I’ve got mornings covered. But a girl needs dessert. Especially when she’s spending long days dreaming up new recipes for your Thanksgiving and Christmas tables.
Pecans are one of my favorite nuts. There’s just something about them, especially when toasted, that makes me happy. When you combine Fisher’s Pecans with spicy gingersnaps – talk about a delicious cheesecake base – seriously, I may have taken a few bites of just the crumbs!
I especially love using Fisher Nuts because they’re preservative free. Nothing in the bag but the nuts as they came off the tree. That’s something this dessert lover can get behind.
Creamy cheesecake is one of my most favorite things, I’ve made no secret of that over the years here on MBA. But I wait all year for pumpkin cheesecake. Those two creamy textures, swirled together with pumpkin pie spice and even more pecans = pure heaven.
Then I just got ridiculous and covered each mini pumpkin cheesecake in salted caramel sauce, whipped cream and more Fisher’s Pecans. Because that’s how I roll.
