With the excitement of fall comes a swooping of pumpkin into our stores. From Mama's iconic Pumpkin Pie recipe to Starbucks' ever-popular Pumpkin Spice Latte, we go crazy for pumpkin flavoring in everything from Oreos to Kit Kats to cream cheese. It all becomes a little much, yes – but your guests won't be complaining about this pretty and incredibly delectable No-Bake Pumpkin Cheesecake. A crown jewel in every fall party or celebration, a no-bake pumpkin cheesecake shaves off valuable cooking time on the day of a busy event, and is an easy, impressive way to appreciate the season. The filling on this colorful cheesecake uses a sweet blend of canned pumpkin, cream cheese, and whipped topping to give you a firm, sliceable pie in just a few hours. And, one of the best parts about this recipe? The crust is made with crushed gingersnaps, giving you a little bit of sugar, spice, and everything nice. It's the perfect finish to the cool, creamy bite of the cheesecake.
There's no need to heat up your oven for fall baking when you've got this recipe in your back pocket. If you've got about 20 minutes on the day before your event, you'll be all set to pull together this easy fall dessert. It's not a classic pumpkin pie, no – but this twist is a welcome, cool addition to your dessert table. When you're ready to serve this no-bake cheesecake, we'd encourage you to break out your mixing bowl and whip up some fresh heavy cream, however. Fresh cream cuts through the sweetness nicely and adds a beautiful finish onto this delightful crowd-pleaser. It's an easy win with picky guests, and all it takes is a little room in your fridge.
