gluten free pumpkin pie cheesecake – our favorite Thanksgiving dessert!

gluten free pumpkin pie cheesecakePumpkin pie and cheesecake are two of our favorite desserts, so we figured, why not combine them! This flourless gluten free pumpkin pie cheesecake makes a great Thanksgiving dessert – both traditional and a bit different. You can make it with a crumb crust (recipe included) or bake it crustless. Either way, the cheesecake is creamy and light with a hint of pumpkin and cinnamon. Try to make this a day or two ahead of time – the flavours of the pumpkin and the spices really come out the longer it sits.
