PUMPKIN CHEESECAKE. It ticks all the important boxes:
√ It’s easy.
√ It’s impressive.
√ It’s pumpkin-y.
Count me in. I took this to a fall get-together last weekend. When I opened the cake holder to reveal this glorious dessert, I was asked, “Now what is that?” When I responded, “Pumpkin Cheesecake,” I received a coveted response:
And that makes my heart happy. I don’t know why, but it sure does. Nothing better than cooking for people who love what you make.
“You MADE that?”
Then the sudden shyness takes over and I just nod and smile.
Because I am (typically) not one to gloat and brag. (I am the wallflower, the introvert, who wants to quietly please your taste buds.) And although this pumpkin cheesecake looks like something masterful, something skillful, something hard… it’s totally not.
