Marbled Pumpkin Cheesecake {Gluten Free Option}

Guys!! Thanksgiving is almost here! How did that happen?! How is this year possibly already almost in the books, I’m so confused! To say 2017 has be chock full of amazing things (and amazing food) would be an understatement for sure, and this beautiful little cheesecake is right up there with one of my favorite things to leave my kitchen this year.

On top of being delicate and beautiful, this is one of the only cheesecake recipes I have made that hasn’t had one single little crack.. a happy dance happened all around my kitchen (gently, of course, I certainly didn’t want to crack this baby with my sick dance moves).

I know it’s probably going to look like there are quite a few steps down there in those directions, but promise it’s easier than it sounds and you will be SO impressed with yourself. I assure you success will taste sweet.. like the perfect pumpkin swirl cheesecake kind of sweet. Imagine that. I topped my cheesecake with some fresh very lightly sweetened whipped cream and my favorite salted caramel sauce, not to say I think you’d be WRONG to not eat it like this.. butttttt it tasted pretty right to me. Happy Thanksgiving feast planning my friends!

Marbled Pumpkin Cheesecake {Gluten Free Option}

As stunning as it is tasty, this beautiful cheesecake is surprisingly easy to make!

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups gingersnap cookies, finely crushed (gluten free option)
  • 1/2 cup pecans, finely chopped
  • 1/3 cup butter, melted
  • 2 (8 oz) packages cream cheese, room temperature
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 eggs, room temperature
  • 1 cup canned pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie filling)
  • 1/2 Tablespoon pumpkin pie spice

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 350ºF. Set a 9-inch springform pan on a double layer of heavy aluminum foil, mold to fit around sides of pan to create a water barrier.
  2. Mix together crushed cookies, pecans, and butter in a bowl, press into bottom and about 1 inch up the sides of prepared pan. Bake crust in preheated oven for 10 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, beat together cream cheese, sugar and vanilla in a large bowl with an electric mixer, just until smooth (you don’t want to incorporate too much air). Mix in eggs, one at a time, until combined. Remove ~1/2 cup of the mixture and pour into zip top bag, set aside. Stir the pumpkin puree and pumpkin pie spice into the remaining mixture.
  4. Pour pumpkin batter into prepared crust. Cut a small hole in the corner of plastic bag holding the plain mixture and pipe parallel lines of plain batter across pumpkin surface (space lines ~3/4 inch apart). Draw knife tip gently through piped lines, going in the opposite direction of piped lines, alternating directions with each pass (top to bottom, bottom to top). Alternately, for a swirled effect simply swirl knife tip through both batters.
  5. Set springform pan in a roasting pan, gently pour enough boiling water into the roasting pan to come halfway up the springform pan, being careful no to fill over your aluminum foil barrier.
  6. Bake in preheated oven until set ~50 minutes. Remove from oven and immediately run knife around the edge of springform pan between pan and cheesecake to prevent cracking. Cool at room temperature for 1 hour. Remove rim of pan and chill covered cheesecake in refrigerator at least 4 hours before serving.
