Are you ready for fall yet?

If you had asked me that a week ago I would have said a resounding “NO!”

I’ll be honest friends, I’ve really had a difficult time getting into the fall spirit this year.

Maybe it’s because even though the nights are a bit cooler, the day temps have been warm and sunny.

Or maybe it’s because summer seemed to go by so fast that I can’t believe it’s over already!

But the reality is fall will officially be here and the signs are all around me.

The leaves are turning, the squirrels are gathering up the walnuts off our trees, our local orchards are packed with people buying the first apples of the season, and you guessed it, Halloween costumes and candy are the first things you see when you walk into any store.

So I’ve decided-ready or not, it’s time to embrace fall and enjoy all the wonderful things I LOVE about this season!

Like all things pumpkin.

Pumpkin Spice Lattes-Pumpkin muffins-Pumpkin bread -oh, and my latest obsession.

My friend, Amy emailed me this recipe last fall for pumpkin cheesecake, but it involved making mini pie crusts with dough and I thought that sounded like too much work, so I filed it away and forgot about it.

But the other day I was at the grocery store and I found these mini graham cracker crusts. At first, I was going to make an apple dessert with them (I’m still going to) but when I got home I started looking through my recipes and found that one Amy had sent me.

Ding Ding!

They were the perfect vessel for that creamy-spicy cheesecake filling!

And of course, so much easier than regular pie crust!!

The best part?

All you need is five ingredients!

Okay, six if you count the fresh whipped cream!

I just know you’re going to love it!

Here’s the recipe!

Enjoy!

  1. Enjoyed your email this morning and looking forward to seeing the new things you’ve done with the house. I hear you on the fall thing, I was ready for cooler temperatures but not so much the change of season. However this recipe could be just the fix to get me in the spirit of fall. Looks amazing and perfect for someone who enjoys cooking but doesn’t have the space.

    1. It’s taking me a bit longer to get back into blogging, sweet friend, but it’s a small step. Newsletter next? As for the cheesecake. Oh my goodness they are so good! Seriously my newest obsession. I made up a whole bunch of them and froze over half. They will be perfect for unexpected company!:) Thanks for stopping by and for all the amazing support!

  2. Oh my these look heavenly. What I love most is the portion control which is a big issue for me. Thanks for the great recipe and idea. Oh yeah, and my husband thanks you too because he’s a huge pumpkin dessert lover.
