Recipe Tips

  • We recommend using a 9 inch spring form pan. A 10 inch springform pan will also work too.
  • Make sure to use full fat, brick style cream cheese. If you use other cream cheese types – it may not set properly.
  • Make sure to use 100% pure pumpkin and not premade pumpkin pie filling. Pumpkin pie filling has a bunch of other ingredients that we don’t need in it.
  • If your cheesecake doesn’t seem to be firming up enough, place it in the freezer.
  • On that same note – this cheesecake freezes well. Then thaw it in the fridge.
