Hello and Happy Tuesday! IMG 9282 800x533 thumb No Bake Pumpkin Cheesecake Recipe

Today wasn’t the best day since I managed to drop my head set receiver into my tea after lunch wlEmoticon sadsmile3 No Bake Pumpkin Cheesecake Recipe

It’s now sitting in a bag of rice….IMG 9276 800x600 thumb No Bake Pumpkin Cheesecake Recipe

But, today also wasn’t the worst day since I got a great delivery and am currently chomping on sweet potato chips and chocolate chips. I love Food Should Taste Good!

I think I’m getting a little too crazy with them though – hoping Ben comes home soon to take them off my hands wlEmoticon winkingsmile4 No Bake Pumpkin Cheesecake RecipeIMG 9293 800x533 thumb No Bake Pumpkin Cheesecake Recipe

Layered Pumpkin Cheesecake

It’s kinda of random but I have this childhood memory of my mom making a layered pumpkin cheesecake on Thanksgiving. It wasn’t one of our traditional dishes, but she found the recipe on a Kraft coupon and wanted to try it.

Since all our usual dishes took up the fridge and counter space, we kept it in the tiny spare fridge in the den. But, when she sent me to get it I found it was frozen! That tiny fridge sucked. The end.

Anyway, now when I see pumpkin cheesecake in the dessert case it’s always just a pumpkin flavored cheesecake – not a layered one. So, I thought I’d make an easy version and try not to freeze it this time…IMG 9289 800x533 thumb No Bake Pumpkin Cheesecake Recipe

    My aunt just invited to me to Thanksgiving dinner and said since I’m the healthy one I get to bring the pie. I have some graham cracker crusts to use and found another pumpkin recipe, but this one looks like it’d be perfect for my first pie (non) baking attempt.

    Ahhhh! This is not cheesecake! Also, why the need for the fat free and sugar free products? Thanksgiving is only once a year…
