No Bake Pumpkin Pie Cheesecake Recipe

Every parent has some struggles with their kids. My biggest struggles with Ella are:

  1. attitude
  2. getting her to clean up after herself
  3. she and I have completely opposite tastes in desserts

Okay, so I get that #3 shouldn’t seem like a big deal, but every time I make a dessert that I like – she doesn’t like it and I’m left eating it all by myself; or I decide to be a nice mom and make a dessert that she loves, which means I get to enjoy any of it.

This pumpkin pie cheesecake is my attempt at some middle ground. She loves everything pumpkin and pumpkin spice (I don’t) while I love cheesecake (and she doesn’t). Surprisingly, there was enough about this recipe that each of us enjoyed it!

This no bake pumpkin cheesecake is silky, creamy and rich with pumpkin flavor and just the right amount of pumpkin pie spice. The graham cracker crust adds a crunchy contrast to the smooth cheesecake filling, and even I can’t complain when it takes less than 15 minutes to prepare this entire recipe!

If you want to add a bit more flavor to this recipe, you could add some melted chocolate or cocoa powder to the cheesecake batter or use a chocolate graham cracker crumb for the crust. (I’ve even melted chocolate chips to use for the crust to give it a decadent chocolate taste.)

This pumpkin pie cheesecake will last for up to a week in the fridge, however, if you want to freeze it you will need to carefully wrap the cheesecake in parchment paper or plastic wrap before storing in your favorite freezer containers for up to 1 month. (This set of freezer containers is a crazy bargain.)

Tip: personally, I like adding a bit of white sugar to the crust but my daughter prefers the crust unsweetened. Add white sugar if it’s your personal preference.

How to Make a No Bake Pumpkin Pie Cheesecake

Grease a 8″ springform pan and then line with parchment paper.

In a medium-sized bowl, combine the graham cracker crumbs, optional sugar and melted butter. Stir until melted butter is completely absorbed and distributed evenly among the crumbs.

Press the graham cracker crumb mixture into the springform pan to form an even crust. Place in the fridge for 10 minutes as you prepare the cheesecake filling.

In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese until completely smooth and no lumps remain.

Beat in the pumpkin, pumpkin pie spice and cool whip until completely combined, being careful not to overmix.

Pour the pumpkin cheesecake filling over top of the chilled cheesecake crust.

Wrap the top of the springform pan with plastic wrap and refrigerate 2 hours or overnight.
