Denise’s Pumpkin Cheesecake with Toffee Chips

Posted By Denise On November 14, 2013 @ 7:03 pm In Dessert,Recipes | No Comments

My friend Janet makes this fabulous pumpkin cheesecake topped with toffee chips and it is so delicious that I asked her permission to share the recipe with you guys. I’m planning on making a big one for the family for Thanksgiving dinner but Janet used small 4″ spring form pans [3] for hers to make individual cheesecakes to share with friends. She tells me that she prefers to use ginger snap cookies for the crust but she was out so she used chocolate graham crackers instead. You could use any kind that you have handy.
