Pumpkin Cheesecake Tarts are delicious layers of cream cheese, pumpkin and whipped cream. A terrific no bake pumpkin dessert.
Pumpkin Cheesecake tarts start off with my made from scratch tart recipe which you can find on my recipe for Old Fashioned Butter Tarts. Of course, store bought tart shells will work well in the recipe as well. The cheesecake and pumpkin layers are no bake and come together easily. One important tip is to make sure your cream cheese is at room temperature so it blends well and you don't get lumps of cream cheese.
I can't believe we've already had our 1st snowfall of the year. What's up with that, the beginning of September. At least the snow didn't stay and it is starting to warm up again. The joys of living in Alberta! Fall is my favourite time of the year. Beautiful red and gold colours and the wonderful harvest of delicious fall fruits and vegetables. Time to fill the house with the amazing smell of spiced pumpkin and apples. These scrumptious Pumpkin Cheesecake Tarts make a perfect fall treat.
This recipe for Pumpkin Cheesecake Tarts is a snap to make and only requires baking of the tart shells. These tarts have a smooth creamy cheese layer, topped with a pumpkin pudding layer, then finished with a dollop of whipped cream!
