I cannot believe that Thanksgiving will be here in less than a month. Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays, which is funny because I am not the biggest fan of turkey. I love all the side dishes though and make sure to fill up on those. To me though Thanksgiving is all about the desserts. My family usually has just as much dessert options as we do options at dinner. My two must have Thanksgiving desserts are pumpkin pie and cheesecake.
I decided to combine my two favorite Thanksgiving desserts to make a delicious Biscoff Pumpkin Cheesecake. While cheesecake is one of my favorites, I have never made an actual cheesecake. I have made mini cheesecakes and no bake cheesecakes, but never an actual cheesecake. So I went out to the store last weekend and bought a spring form pan and set out to make a cheesecake.
I figured making cheesecake would be really hard, but I was surprised to see it wasn’t hard at all. It is not hard to get the cheesecake together, but it does take a very long time to bake. So once I mixed up all my ingredients, which didn’t take long, I popped my cheesecake in the oven and put on a movie. By the time my cheesecake was done, the movie was about over.
Don’t be afraid by the long baking time, the cheesecake itself is really easy. This would be a great dessert to make the night before Thanksgiving, the cheesecake can cook the night before and you can do other things while it is baking and then you have a delicious dessert ready for the next day.
I seriously think that this Biscoff Pumpkin Cheesecake was one of the best cheesecakes I have ever had. It was so delicious and the biscoff flavor of the crust and ganache went great with the pumpkin cheesecake. The cheesecake had a Biscoff Cookie Crust, pumpkin cheesecake in the middle, then a white chocolate biscoff ganache on top. Yum, this cheesecake was amazing! I loved the combination of biscoff and pumpkin in every bite. Plus the cheesecake is so pretty and looks fantastic and would look great on your Thanksgiving table. I can’t wait to make this again for Thanksgiving!
