Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Cheesecake




Fall is finally here.

Leaves are changing colors, photos of spiced pumpkin lattes are flooding Instagram, little girls are dressed like Disney Princesses (more than usual in Los Angeles), and pumpkin carving parties are in full swing.

Which means… It’s officially time to do some pumpkin inspired baking! This pumpkin cheesecake is festive, delicious, makes 2 cheesecakes (one for your dinner party & one for you), and most importantly… it’s really EASY to make!

  1. Hmm it appears like your site ate my first comment (it was super long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I submitted and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog. I as well am an aspiring blog writer but I’m still new to everything. Do you have any tips and hints for newbie blog writers? I’d certainly appreciate it.
