“Celebrate the flavors of autumn with our innovative No-Bake Pumpkin Spice Delight, a dessert that strikes the perfect balance between health-conscious and indulgent. Crafted with a dash of creativity and just eight essential ingredients, this recipe offers a swift 10-minute prep time, making it a must-try for both seasoned bakers and newcomers alike.

Ingredients:

  • 1 block (8 oz) of Greek Yogurt Cream Cheese
  • ½ cup of Brown Sugar (with an extra 2 Tbsp for the crust)
  • 2 teaspoons of Pure Vanilla Extract
  • 1 teaspoon of Pumpkin Pie Spice
  • ¾ cup of Pumpkin Puree
  • 1 tub (8 oz) of Light Whipped Topping
  • ½ cup of Graham Cracker Crumbs
  • 2 tablespoons of Melted Butter

Directions:

For the Crust: Begin by melting the butter in a microwave for a quick 30 seconds. If you’re crushing graham crackers for crumbs, a trick is to place them in a sealed bag and roll them with a rolling pin until they achieve a sandy texture. Now, combine the graham cracker crumbs, along with 2 tablespoons of brown sugar and the melted butter in a small bowl. Mix until it forms a crumbly texture, then press this delightful concoction into an 8”x8” pan. Pop it in the freezer for a brief 10 minutes while you work on the filling.

For the Filling: In a spacious bowl, use an electric mixer to whip the cream cheese until it becomes velvety-smooth. Now, incorporate the remaining brown sugar, vanilla extract, and the aromatic pumpkin pie spice into the mix. Stir in the pumpkin puree and the airy whipped topping until you achieve a harmonious blend.

Assembly: Retrieve the crust from the freezer and evenly spread the pumpkin cheesecake filling on top. Gently press it down to create a seamless layer. Refrigerate the cheesecake for at least 4 hours to allow it to set to perfection. For an optional finishing touch, sprinkle a dusting of ground cinnamon on top. Finally, slice it into squares, serve, and relish this unique, guilt-free masterpiece.
