  • Summary

    So, this cheesecake is like pumpkin pie dressed up in velvet. It has all the delicious, spicy autumn flavor of traditional pumpkin pie—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.)

    Ingredients

    • 1 1/2 cups flour
    • 5 Tbls. unsweetened cocoa powder (not sweetened hot chocolate mix)
    • 1/4 tsp. kosher salt
    • 10 Tbls. butter, diced and softened
    • 1/2 cup + 2 Tbls. confectioner's sugar
    • 2 egg yolks
    • 1/2 tsp. vanilla
    • 1/4 cup flour
    • 2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
    • 1 Tbls. cognac
    • 1 15-oz. can 100% pure pumpkin (NOT pumpkin pie filling)
    • 24 oz. cream cheese (that's 3 8-oz. bricks), at room temperature
