These pumpkin cheesecake "oreo" bites do not need much of an introduction because they are just so beautiful and delicious! This recipe is adapted from here and thought the outcome came a bit different, as I subbed the egg and used vegan cream cheese. Regardless, these came out better than I had expected because 1. it's my first time making cheesecake 2. they were addicting and so creamy and delicious 3. i had to do a lot of squats in order to get these out of my system, because #2 :)
That string looking thing in the corner is actually NOT a string, it's frozen chocolate I placed on the edge! *swipes forehead*
The only thing I would change in this recipe is the amount of pumpkin puree. There was just a faint taste of pumpkin in every bite so I would definitely add in more puree to get the pumpkin taste. Even without the added pumpkin, these are worth trying. The recipe I'm posting is absolutely delicious, and so easy to make that you'll probably want to make a double batch just for the heck of it!
Note: Once you take them out of the oven, do not touch them and let them cool for 10 minutes. They will look undone, which is fine. Place them into the freezer for 2 hours and they should be solid and ready to eat. Trust me when I say THE WAIT IS WORTH IT!
