Oreo Pumpkin Butter Cheesecake

As you know by know I am part of a monthly dessert challenge and for November the ingredients we had to bake with were Pumpkin and Cream Cheese. I mean seriously, I instantly thought about making a cheesecake! Cheesecake is one of my favorite things to bake, there are just so many varieties you can make. If you have a look through my recipes here you can already find creations like White Chocolate Blueberry CheesecakeKit Kat Crusted Strawberry CheesecakeStrawberry Raspberry Coconut Cheesecake … my favorite Coconut Apple Cramel Cheesecake Bars or a crazy kind like Avocado Caramel Bacon Cheesecake.

So this is my first one that includes pumpkin. And since only pumpkin would be boring, I decided to go with a Oreo Pumpkin Butter Cheesecake! Have you tried the pumpkin butter from Trader Joe’s yet?! If not, you must! Soooo delicious :)
The taste is mind blowing. A perfect combo of pumpkin pie and cheesecake with the nice dark chocolaty taste from the crust!
You will see that I didn’t use lots of sugar in the batter – because of the pumpkin butter. The more pumpkin butter you use, the less sugar you need to add – the butter is very sweet! Now let’s have a look at the recipe and then let’s see what everyone else came up with :)

  6. Looks delicious! Oreos and pumpkin cheesecake? How could you go wrong?

  7. I love PUMPKIN anything—cheesecake is also a favorite of mine. I wish I could eat all of the recipes shown but all contain too many carbs and/or sugar for me. I am going to be attempting to make a dessert with very low sugar–wonder how it will come out.

  27. YUM. I’m still hoping to find a good source of cream cheese here in India (it is around $20/lb). Things like this make me miss home. YUM, your oreo pumpking butter cheese cake sounds great.

  28. Your cheesecake looks awesome, I tried to make one before not very successfully, the shape gone wrong, so I think I need another try, that Oreo seems very good.
