Mini Caramel Pumpkin Cheesecakes

I was so excited when I found a new recipe that would let me use my mini cheesecake pan again. I know it's another pumpkin recipe, but it is still Fall and it's just so good I can't help myself. I promise I will make something without pumpkin soon! I found the Pumpkin Spice Hershey Kisses at Target - my favorite place to shop! If you like pumpkin and cheesecake you should defintely give these a try. Happy Halloween!
Mini Caramel Pumpkin Cheesecakes
8 whole Oreos finely ground in a food processor
1 1/2 T melted butter
8 oz. softened cream cheese
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup Libby's Pure Pumpkin
1 large egg
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
Caramel Dip (comes in a package of 6 little cups)
12 Pumpkin Spice Hershey Kisses, unwrapped
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Combine ground Oreos and melted butter into a bowl until well combined. Spoon into 12 mini cheesecake cups that have been sprayed with cooking spray. Press into the bottom of each cup so the crust is flat. Partially bake for 10 minutes then remove from oven.
In a stand or electric mixer beat the cream cheese, sugar and pumpkin until smooth. Beat in egg, vanilla, cinnamon and nutmeg until combined. Pour evenly into the 12 cups filling about 3/4 way full. Spoon about a teaspoon of caramel into the tops of each filled cup and swirl with a toothpick gently. Bake for 25-28 minutes or until cheesecake is cooked through. Let cool completely. Remove cheesecakes from pan and top each with a spoonful of remaining caramel and a Pumpkin Spice Hershey Kiss. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

  7. Wow! These look amazing. Thanks for the comment on my cupcakes. I see that we share the same "it's Fall now so let's get some pumpkin into everything we bake" attitude! I don't own a mini cheesecake pan but I think I will need to add that to my Christmas List this year!
