Between Pumpkin Sandwich Cookies and Pumpkin Cheesecakes, I’ve also fallen in love with Thai spiced pumpkin soup and came up with a little trick to dress the soup with appropriate flavours – pumpkin seeds and cilantro leaves and here we got a serious jack-o’-lantern wannabePumpkin soup

Isn’t it cute? And what’s best – it’s so easy to make, even if you serve a few bowls it won’t take long to dress them and they’ll surely bring a smile to every dinner guest’s face!

You can also dress these mini pumpkin cheesecakes for Halloween, effortlessly by inserting a cupcake topper and plating with some scary candy. Mini Pumpkin Cheesecakes Halloween

Recipe Notes

For firmer texture add couple tablespoons of flour.

Mixing by hand will help to ensure that there won't be too much air in the batter which can cause sinking in the middle.

Cracks on top or little sinking won't matter with these cakes as the topping hides it.Mini Pumpkin Cheesecakes cracked top
