You Have to Try Making Tessa Arias’ Pumpkin Cheesecakes This Fall

Pumpkin-inspired recipes are all the rage on Instagram right now, and Tessa Arias of Handle the Heat couldn’t wait to hop on this trend. From donuts and muffins to scones and pie, she added pumpkin to a long list of different desserts, but her pumpkin-based cheesecake recipes are shaping up to be some of the very best.

Salted Caramel Pumpkin Cheesecake

If you don’t think that pumpkins and caramel are a match made in heaven, Arias is here to prove you wrong. Her salted caramel pumpkin cheesecake is the best of both worlds, and she describes it as a perfect Thanksgiving dessert because it’s much more flavorful than pumpkin pie.

Pumpkin Chocolate Cheesecake Bars

Cheesecake bars are somewhat of Arias’ specialty, and she couldn’t resist using pumpkins as one of their main ingredients. They are perfectly luscious and smooth, while the delicious swirls of chocolate add some extra crunch to their crust.

Crème Brule Pumpkin Chocolate Cheesecake Bars

Speaking of Arias’ signature chocolate bars, these ones are extra special because they allow you to mix two classic desserts into one. Crème Brulee and cheesecake may not be the most obvious combo, but this recipe convinced us that they perfectly complement each other.
