An Overview

First, start with pumpkin cheesecake ingredients. For our recipe, we will use Graham cracker crusts. These come in two flavors: regular and pumpkin, which are both traditional and fun cheesecakes. The standard crusts are round in shape with a flat bottom. We can also purchase specialty shapes such as wedding cake and fruit-shaped bars.

One of the ingredients you will need is a prepared pumpkin cheesecake bar recipe, which can be found online or at almost any grocery store. The other ingredients include nonfat sour cream, nonfat cream cheese, nonfat or skim milk, vegetable oil, and baking soda. These items can be combined according to the recipe instructions.

Now that we have the basic recipe down, let’s get to step two. In order to make these delicious cheesecakes, you’ll need a food processor and a slow cooker. Using a food processor allows you to chop, blend, and mince ingredients without using all of the food at once. For example, when you make a pumpkin cheesecake, you don’t need to make a pie and then cream cheese and pumpkin pie together, you simply blend all of them together, and use a little bit of cream cheese on top.

Step three is preparing your pumpkin puree and putting it into your slow cooker. This is very easy and it will take just about thirty minutes for you to prepare this delicious dessert. You’ll want to mix the filling ingredients together first, and then you just put the mixture into the slow cooker. Stir it until it looks like it is still lumpy.

Once you have done this, you can put your second layer of filling into your slow cooker. This second layer just has to contain pecans and cinnamon Graham cracker crust. Take your time and make sure that each layer goes well coated with the melted cheese. As an added bonus, the cinnamon Graham cracker crust makes for the best pumpkin cheesecake bars, making for a tasty treat for your entire family.

When your slow cooker is ready, you just transfer it to the oven and set the lid down. It will take approximately four hours for this to cook. Once it does, you will be able to serve your cheesecake at room temperature. If you find that it is too hot to handle at this point, you can always put it in the refrigerator to cool down for a few hours. You should check it after one hour to ensure that it is safe to go outside on your patio.

The Final Steps

The final step to completing this pumpkin cheesecake recipe is to spread some sweetened condensed milk onto the cake. You should also spread about half of a cup of cinnamon Graham cracker crust over the top of the sweetened condensed milk. You should also coat the sides of the Graham cracker crust with the cinnamon topping. When you are done, you can finish cooking your cheesecake in your warm oven for approximately forty minutes.

Once your cheesecake is cooked, it should be cooled on the counter. This will allow the ingredients to fully blend together. You should remove your cheesecake from the oven and allow it to cool completely. Once it has cooled completely, you should wrap it tightly in either a plastic bowl or aluminum foil. This will help keep the mixture from separating.

Once your cheesecake is cooled, you can transfer it to your slow cooker. At this point, you should place your loaf pan in your slow cooker. The instructions that come with your slow cooker should indicate whether or not this pan should be placed in an unheated compartment or if it should be placed in the center of the compartment. It is important that the pan is placed in the center, as the juices that will collect in this pan can circulate easily.

In The End

The final step is to add all of your pumpkin pie and cheesecake’s ingredients to your prepared loaf pan. Make sure all of your ingredients are combined and spread them out evenly on the loaf pan. Then, fill your container with cold water and freeze all of your recipes, including your streusel mixture, until you are ready to assemble them. Your cheesecakes and pumpkin pie will be ready to enjoy within three to five days. They are best when packaged in a plastic zipper bag or wrapped in foil. Store them in the freezer until you are ready to serve.
