Chocolate Pumpkin Pie Cheesecake

Chocolate Pumpkin Pie Cheesecake

My team at work is often the guinea pig for my recipe testing. In this case, they put in a special request. Something with chocolate and pumpkin. I was more than happy to put my cooking cap on and start testing. I have always felt that all pumpkin desserts taste the same. Though this one has a complex dimension of crispy chocolate wafer crust, velvety flavor from the pumpkin cheesecake, topped with the richness of a chocolate glaze. It’s a nice twist on a traditional pumpkin pie.
