Advice

One of the important elements for the success of cheesecake is cooking: your dessert will be ready when the center is still creamy. It will then be the residual heat of the oven that will continue to cook the central part making it firmer. Once cooked, let your pumpkin cheesecake cool in the unlit oven for about an hour: this way it won’t sink into the center.

Another important element: always serve the cheesecake cold. The ideal would be to prepare it the day before, letting it cool in the fridge overnight: in this way it will be more compact and easier to cut into slices.

The eggs and spreadable cheese should be at room temperature to prevent lumps from forming in the dough. In this case, pass the mixture in a mixer to make it smooth and homogeneous.

Instead of Philadelphia cheese you can also use mascarpone or ricotta, the important thing is that it is soft.

You can decorate your pumpkin cheesecake with chopped walnuts to make it even more delicious.

How to store pumpkin cheesecake

You can keep the pumpkin cheesecake in the fridge for 2 or 3 days covered with cling film or inside an airtight container.
