A month away from Thanksgiving and I’m still struggling with the menu. It’s a funny story actually. If you had asked me two weeks ago I would have told you I have everything ready for Thanksgiving. I had written down when I have to go shopping, what I have to buy, when I should start my cooking and how many days in advance I could start baking. I was all set.

Until few days ago when I came home with 5 cans of pumpkin puree.

Seeing the pile of pumpkin cans at the local store made me realize how much I miss if I just move on to the peppermint. All the pumpkin recipes I have pinned but haven’t tried any. All the classic Thanksgiving desserts I haven’t yet made.

The idea of this marble pumpkin cheesecake started after making these chocolate pumpkin bars. As I mentioned in that recipe, the pumpkin layer is actually a pumpkin cheesecake. With cheesecake being my favorite dessert it was obvious I would make a pumpkin cheesecake with some of the pumpkin I just bought.

Just like other cheesecake recipes, it starts with the crust. It depends on my mood what I use for the crust. I may go all graham crackers, other times I made the crust using oats or nuts, even pie crust. This time, I used both graham crackers and gingersnaps.

The gingersnaps give a little something to the crust. The spicy flavors blendin the rich creamy filling. Of course, if you prefer just graham crackers, go ahead. Leave the gingersnaps out.

I have seen a couple of recipes where the crust is baked for a couple of minutes before filled with the pumpkin cheesecake filling, but I skipped this step and just refrigerated the crust while mixing the filling.

The pumpkin cheesecake filling may sound a little complicated, but if you follow the easy steps it’s actually a breeze to make it. And you may even make prettier swirls.
