We always do some sort of pumpkin dessert recipe for the holidays, and this year I am making my Pumpkin Cheesecake Recipe. One of the reasons this is such a favorite is that it’s gluten free. It’s difficult to find gluten free pie recipes because flour is used both for the crust and often to thicken the pie filling. This post contains affiliate links, and I will receive compensation if you make a purchase after clicking on my links.

Pumpkin Cheesecake Recipe

This Pumpkin Cheesecake Recipe starts with a gluten free graham cracker crust which you can make from scratch using gluten free graham cracker crumbs if you like. But, I find that it’s so much easier to just buy a gluten free graham cracker crust. I’ve used the Mi-Del brand gluten free pie crusts in the past and they are really good.

Ingredients

  • 1 gluten free graham cracker crust
  • 1 cup cottage cheese
  • 3/4 cup part skim ricotta cheese
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp ginger
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 15 ounces pumpkin puree - canned

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350F.
  2. In a blender, combine the cottage cheese and ricotta. Process about one minute until smooth. Pour into large bowl. Stir in three eggs, sugar, ginger, vanilla, nutmeg, and cinnamon. Reserve 1/4 cup of the batter. Add the pumpkin to the batter. Stir until blended.
  3. Pour batter into pie plate. Drizzle the reserved batter in 3 concentric circles over the pumpkin batter. With a knife, lightly draw a line through the batter from the center toward the outer edge. About 2" from that line, repeat in alternating directions to make a spiderweb.
  4. Bake about 50 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool completely on rack. Refrigerate covered until ready to serve.

Pumpkin Cheesecake Recipe and 15 Gluten Free Pumpkin Desserts

This dessert is delicious for Thanksgiving or anytime you have an extra pumpkin to use up. You can start from scratch and make homemade pumpkin puree or you can buy a can of pumpkin puree from the grocery store. Do NOT use pumpkin pie filling. It’s not the same thing and it won’t come out correctly.  We always find great deals on pumpkins at our local farm stand.
