This layered pumpkin cheesecake is the perfect dessert to make just in time for Halloween! It is rich and creamy with loads of pumpkin flavor.

I think that by now, you’ve guessed that cheesecake is one of my favorite desserts. I love to make it in all it’s varieties, but in October and November, this one is my go-to. It tastes like a holiday in your mouth! It’s got a not-too-sweet, creamy texture that anyone who tries it will love. Trust me on this one; they won’t even know it’s keto.

Pumpkin is a must when you are doing low-carb or keto diets. It contains 6.5 grams of net carbs per 100 grams. That means it has less sugar and starch than any other starchy vegetable. It is also suitable for people with diabetes or someone who wants to keep their blood sugar levels stable. But be sure to watch your portion size.

Like any other recipe, you have to try it for yourself to see if it suits your taste completely, but here are some of the tips I picked along the way.
For the crust, you can go for virtually any nut flour or meal. You can mix nuts, combine flour or meal, or simply stick to just one option. Regarding the filling – be aware that pumpkin cheesecake filling is a little creamier and slightly less firm than a regular cheesecake.

And another advice: the first time I made this recipe, my filling had cracks when it cooled down. This can happen with sudden temperature changes. So to avoid that from happening, use room temperature ingredients, don’t overbake your cheesecake and cool it gradually when it is done. I open the oven door just a little, and when it has reached room temperature only, then you should put it in the refrigerator.

Make it ahead of time, if you can. This pumpkin cheesecake is best if you let it chill in the fridge overnight. But if you don’t have enough time, 4 hours of chilling is the minimum. You can also freeze it. After it sets in the fridge, wrap it tightly in plastic, and put foil over it. Thaw in the refrigerator the night before serving. And when you serve it, you can put some whipped cream, pecans, or shaved chocolate.

I hope you like this perfect autumn dessert. If you are crazy about cheesecake, be sure to check my other cheesecake recipes
