Pumpkin Cheesecake with Salted Caramel Sauce

Sharing is caring!

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.

I’ve been dreaming of mornings filled with Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffins and Apple Pie Muffins, and trying to think of other ways to amp up my autumnal flavor addiction.

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.

Pumpkin Cheesecake Recipe | My Baking AddictionPecans 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.

I'm never said mini-cupcakes, only mini-cheesecakes. Adjusting the baking time, but the flavor is incredible. I need to read better.

No worries at all, Ursula! I'm glad you liked them!

Making these now......everything looks delicious. However, the cupcake pan pictured is not a mini-cupcake pan. I'm working with mini-cupcake pans, there is no way 3 tbsp of cream cheese mix will fit. Please advise!!!

Do you know how well this recipe would work as a regular cheesecake instead of making the mini cheesecakes? I started making this and realize i dont have enough muffin pan liners. What would be a good size pan to use to just make one cheesecake instead of mini ones?

Hi Misty,

I don't know if that would work out or not, but I think this recipe would probably make one 9" springform pan cheesecake.
