  • Summary

    So, this cheesecake is like pumpkin pie dressed up in velvet. It has all the delicious, spicy autumn flavor of traditional pumpkin pieā€”coupled with the dense creaminess of cheesecake. Serve it topped with whipped cream and fresh chocolate shavings. (Or skip the chocolate and go a la mode with a fat scoop of ginger ice cream.)

    • 5 Tbls. unsweetened cocoa powder (not sweetened hot chocolate mix)
    • 1/4 tsp. kosher salt

    • 2 egg yolks
