Plain cheesecake is delicious, but you can also incorporate some of your favorite fall flavors into them as well. Cranberry, pumpkin, peppermint, and gingerbread are among the ingredients that you can add to your next cheesecake to make it more autumnally appropriate.
Love peppermint bark? Mimic those flavors in your cheesecake. Make an Oreo crust by crushing Oreos into a fine crumb in your food processor. Then in the processor, combine two cups of Oreos with one stick of melted butter to form the crust and foundation for your cheesecake. For the cheesecake filling, make the cream cheese filling as you normally would and add crushed peppermints to the batter. This recipe calls for eight crushed peppermints, but if you don’t have peppermints on hand or prefer a smooth texture, peppermint extract will produce a similar flavored result. Then you have a fall, festive cheesecake that tastes delicious.
With a few small adjustments, your cheesecake recipes will be ready for the season. Make a crust out of gingerbread cookies; add pumpkin puree, or cranberry sauce to your cheesecake filling for fall inspired recipes.
