Crust-less Pumpkin Cheesecake
Every Thanksgiving I serve up this pumpkin cheesecake for dessert. It’s smooth and creamy and a definite crowd pleaser. I make it without a crust, so anyone that’s gluten free doesn’t have to worry about missing out on dessert. I topped it with whipped cream and a dash of nutmeg for garnish.
