Pumpkin cheesecake is a holiday classic dessert that combines the creamy richness of cheesecake with the warm spice of pumpkin. The perfect pumpkin cheesecake has a dense, velvety-smooth filling made with cream cheese, eggs, sugar, and spices like cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg. The filling is nestled atop a buttery graham cracker crust and baked until just set. When done right, this dreamy dessert has a tall, lofty texture and an intense pumpkin flavor that is sure to please any holiday guest. Serve yours garnished with a dollop of freshly whipped cream and a sprinkle of cinnamon for an extra special touch.
