Pumpkin Cheesecake with Orange Toffee Crust

Posted in Chips, Crackers, and Snacks on 2012-05-22
Pumpkin Cheesecake with Orange Toffee Crust
Difficulty 5 minutes Serves 1, 9 inch springform pan
Pumpkin, coconut, lucuma and agave blended into a rich, creamy cheesecake filling surrounded by an almond and date orange toffee crust. This smooth and decadent pumpkin cheesecake isn't overly sweet, and Mandi Gould recommends that if you want a truly sweet dessert experience to end your meal you may want to double the amount of agave nectar.
