If you’ve been following us on Instagram, you probably noticed that we’ve been taking quite a few trips to Georgia lately (as if there isn’t enough to do in Florida, already)! Well, it’s pecan season in The Peach State, so it just makes sense for us to make Pecan Praline Pumpkin Cheesecake! We’ll take any excuse to make cheesecake as well as any Fall dessert!
By the way, you can make this Pecan Praline Pumpkin Cheesecake sugar-free. Simply swap in a granulated sugar substitute of your choice for sugar (same amount) and sugar-free caramel syrup for the topping! Either version is delicious! Would you like to have a slice?
You don’t have to look very closely to see–this Pecan Praline Pumpkin Cheesecake is just oozing with goodness! You’ll want to enjoy a slice (or two?) even after the Fall / pumpkin / pecan season is over!
Uhhmmm… You might want to stock up on pumpkin puree now!
Is it just us or does cheesecake taste so much better after it’s been chilling in the fridge for a while?
