Pumpkin, Caramel Cheesecake. Springform Pan or Easy 9x13 Inch Pan.

Pumpkin Caramel Cheesecake.

All the recipes I put on HubPages I try to cook or bake them myself. I see so many recipes that have been copied from other sites and just posted on this site. Most recipes come from somewhere, but my goodness make them yourself before putting on HubPages.

I made this cheesecake in a springform pan, but it can be made in a 13X9 inch pan, recipe for both to follow.

I decorated it in Halloween candies. You don't have to use decoration you can instead put pecans on the top which is what it calls for. It's completely up to you how you do it.

Cook Time

Prep time: 25 min
Cook time: 45 min
Ready in: 1 hour 10 min
Yields: 16

Ingredients

½ cup chopped pecans, divided

38 Ginger Snaps, finely crushed (about 1 ½ cup)

¼ cup butter melted

4 pkg. (8 oz. each) Cream Cheese, softened

1 cup sugar

1 can (15 0z.) pumpkin

1 Tbsp. pumpkin pie spice

1 tsp. vanilla

4 eggs

1 jar of ice cream caramel (I used Hersheys)

Instructions.

  1. Heat oven to 325°F Cream cheese and eggs should be at room temperature. Scrape bowl after each ingredient is added sides and bottom.
  2. Chop: ¼ cup nuts finely, place in medium bowl. Add gingersnap crumbs and butter: mix well. Press onto bottom of 10-inch springform pan.
  3. Getting Springform Pan Ready For Water Bath: Wrap springform pan in foil around the bottom and most of the way up the side. Place springform into a roasting pan. After putting in the cheesecake filling add boiling water half way up.
  4. Beat: Cream cheese and sugar in large bowl with mixer until blended. Add pumpkin, spice and vanilla a, mix well, Add eggs, 1 at a time, mixing on low speed after each just until blended. Pour over crust.
  5. Bake: 45 minutes or until center is almost set. Cool completely Refrigerate 4 hours.
  6. Pour: Caramel sauce over the top after the cheesecake has cooled. Add decorations or rest of pecans on top of cheesecake.
  7. Serve: with whipped cream.

      Oh my goodness, moonlake! It's almost fall, my favorite season, and Pumpkin is one of my favorite things. My birthday is in November, but instead of baking cake, I actually make my favorite pumpkin and cream cheese pie.

      Your recipe looks so delicious! I'm excited. I will definitely have to try this in the coming months. :)

      That is certainly mouthwatering just to look at! Of course your authenticity makes it that much more special. Any kind of cheesecake is wonderful and this certainly fits the bill.

      Oh me oh my oh! This looks just fabulous, and it would make such a beautiful presentation. Sometimes I do miss being able to eat desserts that contain cow milk. Maybe I could try it with cajeta and other goat's milk products one day.

      Oh dear, another delicious cheesecake! It looks so pretty too. I just love cheesecake and pumpkin, but believe it or not, I have never put the two together. You've given me an idea that maybe for the Saturday after Thanksgiving we should have a cheesecake potluck at our church. There are just a few of us but it would be so fun and festive to have a cheesecake tasting to start off the Christmas season!

      Another great recipe for my 'Fabulous Deserts' board. When I pinned your frosted donuts to my Christmas board a couple of days ago it was repinned several times immediately. The Reese's recipe was too, and I'm betting this will also be popular.

      Pinned to my 'Fabulous Deserts' board, voted up and BAUI, gave it 5 stars, and will share with my followers!
