Easiest Pumpkin Layered Cheesecake

These cookies make the crust. Seriously the best crust ever! I got these at Trader Joes, but I know I’ve seen them in the grocery stores too.

Happy Halloween Everyone!
My friend Mary from work was looking at this Women’s Day magazine and spotted this recipe on the front cover. We both made copies and am so excited to finally have made it. I ended up making a few changes in the cheesecake layer. This is such a treat because you don’t bake it at all! For a no bake cheesecake, this one is worth trying. I’ll be bringing it to my Thanksgiving dinner for sure. Enjoy!!

1 7 oz box Carrs Ginger Lemon Cremes Cookies (finely ground in food processor)
2 Tablespoons butter, melted

1/2 Cup granulated sugar
1/4 Cup powdered sugar
1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice

2. In a stand or electric mixer, beat cream cheese, sugar and vanilla until smooth. Spread over crust.
3. In same mixer, beat the pumpkin, cream cheese, sugars and pumpkin pie spice until smooth. Spread over cream cheese layer. Cover and refrigerate for 2-3 hours or until firm.

    We don’t have a Trader Joes here. ๐Ÿ™
    I bet we have those cookies, though. I’ve seen their crackers in the store.

    This looks fabulous! I can’t believe it’s no-bake!
