Easy No-Bake Pumpkin Cheesecake is the perfect dessert for your fall gatherings & Thanksgiving dinner too. You can’t go wrong with this simple fall dessert.
Who loves cheesecake? How about pumpkin? This time of year we can’t get enough of either, so we combined the two to make this Easy No-Bake Pumpkin Cheesecake that is a fan favorite.
When I was growing up my great-grandmother was the queen of pumpkin pies. She would make them for all the clubs & groups she was in & would often bake hundreds to take around town. Once in while she would break away from that & create some no-bake goodies I was particularly fond of – like this one here.

I really love this recipe because you can make it with a homemade graham cracker crust or just pick up a couple ready-made crusts while buying your other ingredients & make it all the easier. This pumpkin cheesecake filling recipe will make enough for 1 – 9″ round cheesecake or 2 of the smaller ready-made crusts. Makes it so easy to tailor it to your party needs.
Here are some commonly asked questions
WHAT PAN DID YOU USE TO MAKE THIS CHEESECAKE?
I really love this 9″ springform pan. It is just the right size for feeding a crowd. Plus it’s non-stick which makes clean up a breeze.
DO I HAVE TO USE A SPRINGFORM PAN FOR THIS RECIPE?
I suppose you could use a regular pan. But it would make it extremely difficult to remove the slices without them becoming a big sloppy mess. In order to keep them in the shape of an actual slice, the springform pan is best. It allows you to remove the sides of the pan without disturbing the cheesecake itself. Plus it’s less than $15 for the one I mentioned above, so it won’t break the bank.
WHERE CAN I FIND THOSE FALL SPRINKLES SHOWN HERE?
I picked up these adorable fall sprinkles on Amazon. You could pick up any kind you like or may find at Michaels or Target. I usually find some cute ones there this time of year. However I also find that I buy way more than I need when I go IN the store- so Amazon helps me pick up only what I need.
