Last week my hubby and I ate at the Cheesecake Factory. It is definitely one of our favorite places to go for a lunch date!!!
We always end up ordering an appetizer and two meals. I love their chipotle chicken pasta, so that’s what I normally go with.
The servings there are HUGE! We could easily share just one meal and be content…especially when there is cheesecake for dessert. But we always end up ordering too much and taking some home!
But I have such a hard time shelling out that much money just for ONE piece of cheesecake because I know we can make one at home that tastes just as good or better.
Now don’t get me wrong…we DID pull out the ‘ole wallet and just about had to give up our first born for those two yummy pieces. And oh boy, were they ever delicious!!!
But our lunch date had me wanting to bake some cheesecake at home. Since it is almost fall, I dug out a can of pumpkin. I get so excited for fall baking!!!
I used an Oreo cookie split in half for the top and bottom of each cheesecake. Put half an Oreo cookie in the bottom of a cupcake liner, fill it with the pumpkin cheesecake filling, then press the remaining half of cookie into the top.
You can go ahead and leave the frosting on the cookie. Just put the frosting side touching the cheesecake. Bake and cool and add Cool Whip and crushed cookies to the top. Then enjoy a mini pumpkin Oreo cheesecake throughout the day.
Pumpkin cheesecake and Oreo cookies…your fall parties will never be the same!
