What could be better than Pumpkin Cheesecake? Mini Pumpkin Cheesecakes! Strangely enough, although I really like cheesecake, I rarely make it at home and typically do not order it at restaurants for dessert. I’m not really sure why. I know that I find the slices they serve you at restaurants ridiculously large, which is probably why I opted to make these little bites. The perfect size, they have all of the flavor of your traditional size pumpkin cheesecake.

I was a little concerned that their size would result in extra work, but I was pleasantly surprised that I was able to whip them up in no time. Not having a recipe on hand, I spend some time on the internet going through a variety of cheesecake recipes to get some ideas. I personally like my cheesecakes with sour cream, so I knew that was a must. Obviously, I wanted some pumpkin puree and all of your traditional fall spices. And, dare I say, I really like the way these turned out. If I had to make any changes, I would perhaps increase the amount of pumpkin pie spice.

I can’t wait to make these again.
