Caramel Bottom Eggnog Cheesecake from Bottom Left of the Mitten

I feel like the holiday can finally get underway.  I’ve strung the lights up outside, put up the tree, hit the Amazon Cyber Monday deals.  We are way ahead of schedule this year and only have a few presents left to get so that means in not too long I have to do one task that I don’t particularly like about Christmas-wrapping presents.  I’ll be honest, I suck at it!

However one tradition that I have kind of makes it easy to get through, I enjoy a big glass of eggnog while doing it.  That creamy concoction mixed with a little spiced rum….yummy!  Makes the fact that I cannot make even a shirt box look presentable a little less stinging. But I’ve never had ‘nog any other way….so I decided to try something different.

In order to let everyone this holiday season enjoy eggnog, I decided to use it in a method that is quickly becoming one of my favorite ways to cook ~ no-bake cheesecake.  A no-bake cheesecake can be changed up to suit the needs of any occasion. Easy, fast, versatile and more importantly~delicious! 

This Caramel Bottom Eggnog Cheesecake with Ginger Snap Crust is a winner for the holidays.  And did you see that I said ‘easy’?  Check out the video showing how quickly it comes together.

Dessert is made.  So now you can get back to wrapping all those presents.  I hope you are better at it than I am!

Chunky Applesauce Cheesecake

I can’t wait to share with you one of my favorite fall desserts, Chunky Applesauce Cheesecake. Creamy cheesecake and a graham cracker crust filled with a beautiful chunky applesauce filling. 

Chunky Applesauce Cheesecake on a table ready to eat!

Ah, fall! You are finally here!  We are cooling down this week after an extended heat wave and I am so happy.  The heat, humidity, and mosquitoes have been bad here in Southwest Michigan so I am ready to start seeing the leaves fall, breathe in the cool crisp air and enjoy all that this beautiful state has to offer for the season.

I call this ‘chunky applesauce’ because this is the applesauce recipe that I make for my family.  If I have a few apples lying around I will whip this up as a side for dinner.  And since I honestly cannot resist a cheesecake this is a chunky applesauce cheesecake combines two of my favorite things. 

Ingredients for Chunky Applesauce Cheesecake on a counter.

How to make Chunky Applesauce:

If you wanted to just make the applesauce as I do, you would just use this step alone.  I’m sure your family will love it, it’s perfect with a pork roast and mashed potatoes.

Set up a cutting board next to a pot and cube your apples.  Put them into the pot and add salt, vanilla, butter, cornstarch, cinnamon, nutmeg, and apple juice.  Stir to combine and bring to a boil cooking for around 10 minutes.

Take off the heat and set aside to cool if you are using for the cheesecake.  If not, serve immediately.

How to make the Chunky Applesauce Cheesecake:

For the crust crush graham crackers and mix with butter and sugar.  Pat down into the bottom of a greased springform pan.

In a mixing bowl combine the cheesecake ingredients: cream cheese, sugar, brown sugar, and cool whip.

How to make a Chunky Applesauce Cheesecake step-by-step.

Mix with electric mixer until all combined.

Once the applesauce has cooled down a bit add to the top of the graham cracker crust on top of that add the cheesecake mixture.

Let the cheesecake refrigerate for 4-6 hours.

And here you are….

Butterscotch Bottom Pumpkin Spice Cheesecake

This quick No-Bake Cheesecake is perfect for fall.  Pumpkin spice filling is layered over a melted butterscotch bottom and graham cracker crust. Butterscotch Bottom Pumpkin Spice Cheesecake is the easy dessert you’ve been looking for.

A Butterscotch Bottom Pumpkin Spice Cheesecake in a pie plate ready to eat!

I’ve been seeing pumpkin spice recipes all Pinterest so that means that fall is within our reach.  So I thought I better get on it~introducing my Butterscotch Bottom Pumpkin Spice Cheesecake!  Graham cracker crust is layered with butterscotch, pumpkin spice cheesecake filling then topped with candied pecans.  Is there anything better than candied pecans on pie?

I’ll be honest, I’m not much a baker.  While it’s a goal I’ve set for myself over the next year I’m not quite there so when I make a dessert it has to be a quick and most likely no bake.  Since most pumpkin recipes are baked pies, cookies and cakes I had to be creative and pull from  recipes that I’ve already made and reinvent it.  Bingo! My Chocolate Bottom Strawberry Cheesecake is a no-bake dessert that can easily be updated with pumpkin flavor.

How to make Candied Pecans or the topping:

Before we get to the video, I made some candied pecans for the top of this pie.  I made these prior to the video and they are not included so quickly let me tell you how.  Gather a 2 ounce package of chopped pecans, 1 Tbs butter and 1 Tbs brown sugar  Add butter to the pan and begin to melt, add pecans and brown sugar.  Stir quickly over high heat for 2 minutes until the butter and brown sugar begin to caramelize.  Take off heat and pour on a piece of wax paper on a pan.  Let cool while you make the pie.

How to make Butterscotch Bottom Pumpkin Spice Cheesecake {VIDEO}:

Now on to the video.  *Part way through the video the lens sadly got splattered & I didn’t realize it!  This is my 2nd video so I am kind of glad it happened so I can be a little more cautious next time!

Just a few easy steps and then in to the refrigerator to set.

Tips & Variations for Butterscotch Bottom Pumpkin Spice Cheesecake:

  • Not a fan of butterscotch? Swap out for chocolate chips or just omit entirely.
  • Only like a ‘little’ pumpkin spice taste?  Feel free to half or even quarter the pumpkin spice mix to adjust for your taste.

And here you are…….
