Mini Pumpkin Swirl Cheesecakes Recipe

I love making mini desserts around the holidays. Meals and desserts are so rich and filling, it’s nice to have a little bite of the things we love!

These Mini Pumpkin Swirl Cheesecakes are a family favorite of ours and I know you will love them too.

A lot of friends are very intimidated by making cheesecake, but it really isn’t all that difficult at all. And these Mini Pumpkin Swirl Cheesecakes are super easy with none of the usual work that goes into making a cheesecake.

When you make pumpkin desserts, you don’t always use the entire can of pumpkin. Put it in an airtight container and save it for recipes just like this one!
