No Bake Egg Free Pumpkin Cheesecake with Praline Sauce

I'm not exactly sure how healthy this is but the best part of this recipe is No Bake and I love the flavor of Pumpkin.  This could definitely be a great addition to my Thanksgiving dinner.

No Bake Egg Free Pumpkin Cheesecake with Praline Sauce        

Author: Carla Cardello (
Serves: 16-25 squares

    1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
    4 Tbsp butter, melted
    1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
    2 tsp powdered sugar
    1/2 cup sugar
    16 ounces cream cheese, softened
    1 tsp vanilla
    1 cup pumpkin puree
    1 tsp ground cinnamon
    1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
    1/2 tsp ground ginger
    1/4 tsp ground allspice

Praline Sauce

    1/2 cup brown sugar
    3 Tbsp butter, cut into tablespoons
    1/4 cup heavy whipping cream
    Few drops of vanilla extract
    Pinch of salt
    1/2 cup pecans, chopped


Mix together the graham cracker crumbs and butter. Press into the bottom of a 9×9 pan. Refrigerate while you prepare the batter.

In a medium bowl, beat the cream until it thickens. Slowly add the powdered sugar then beat until stiff peaks form (pull beaters straight up and the peaks should not fall). Set aside.

In a large bowl, beat together the sugar, cream cheese, and vanilla. Beat until smooth then beat in the pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, and allspice until smooth. Fold in the whipped cream. Spread evenly into the prepared pan. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours before serving.

For the sauce: Place brown sugar in a deep saucepan and heat over medium heat. As the sugar melts, start whisking. As soon as all of the sugar is melted, carefully add the butter and whisk until melted. Remove from the heat and slowly add the cream. Once it settles down, whisk until smooth then whisk in the vanilla and salt. Stir in pecans. Serve over cheesecake.
