    This fall I’m trying to enjoy the simple things in life. Our summer was a blur and a lot more stressful than I had anticipated. I pushed aside a lot of the things I enjoyed to focus on construction decisions, errands, etc and missed a lot of moments. We rarely walked to the grocery store or to dinner, we didn’t have friends over nearly as often and spend hours on end outside playing with the girls.

    As the weather shifts, my thinking seems to as well. I’m no longer running at an insane pace and feel empowered by saying “no”. Even my desire to do a little fall baking seems to have subsided, for now. This no bake pumpkin cheesecake recipe captures the flavor of fall, in just 5 minutes. That leaves plenty of time to enjoy long walks and time with the girls.

    My no bake pumpkin cheesecake is a simple adaptation of my favorite no bake peanut butter cheesecake, which is always a crowd pleaser. I love it’s subtle pumpkin taste and smooth, creamy texture!

    It’s also the perfect end to a meal filled with 30 minute dinner rolls, Ruth’s Chris sweet potato casserole, cheesy corn bake and of my famous firehouse green beans that have gone viral both in our house and on Pinterest!

    No Bake Pumpkin Cheesecake Ingredients

    • Heavy Cream – Either labeled heavy cream or heavy whipping cream in the grocery store, this is what gives this easy pumpkin cheesecake it’s light and creamy texture. Buy an organic brand, if possible.
    • Powdered Sugar – Powdered sugar or confectioner’s sugar melts beautifully into the heavy cream as your whipping it together. Granulated sugar would simply give the cheesecake a grainy texture.
    • Pumpkin – I know we all have a can of Libby’s Pumpkin Puree sitting in our pantries this time of year. For the purest pumpkin taste, make sure to purchase 100% Pure Pumpkin, not Pumpkin Pie Filling, which contains added spices and sugar.
    • Cream Cheese – The base of any homemade cheesecake recipe. I use 1/3 less fat or Neufchatel cream cheese for its softer texture and higher moisture content.
    • Graham Cracker Crust – I prefer the Keebler Ready Crust Graham Pie Crust. It’s one of the many secrets that makes this pumpkin cheesecake recipe so quick and easy!

    How Long Do I Need to Refrigerate No Bake Pumpkin Cheesecake?

    I found 2 hours to be an appropriate amount of time for the pumpkin cheesecake to fully set. If you want to get a bit ahead, this pumpkin dessert can easily be made 1-2 days in advance. No stress holiday desserts are here!

    How Long Does the Holiday Cheesecake Dessert Last?

    This easy pumpkin cheesecake recipe will last for up to 5 days covered tightly with plastic wrap and stored in the fridge.

    If you are looking to freeze, simply double wrap the entire cheesecake with plastic wrap, label, date, and place in your freezer for up to 1 month.

    When ready to serve, remove from the freezer 24 hours beforehand to allow the cheesecake to gradually take the freeze off. Perfect pumpkin cheesecake every time!
