This irresistibly delicious Pumpkin Cheesecake Crumble with pecans and a delightful maple cream cheese topping is a lovely addition for the approaching festive season.

Hello, everyone! Are you ready for Halloween (If you celebrate)? Haven’t you accidentally eaten all candies you bought for kids? (If you answered “yes” to the last question, don’t be embarrassed. It’s fine. You need to know what you’re giving away. Quality control. Now, you still have some time to get more candies.)

While I am not really celebrating Halloween this week, and I don’t have any special treats for the blog, I am happy to share with you this Pumpkin Cheesecake Crumble.

A couple of weeks ago we celebrated Canadian Thanksgiving, and I was considering to make a crumble with real cubed pumpkin. I googled it to get some ideas and inspiration, and I was surprised to have found most recipes were suggesting pumpkin puree. I never would have thought to use pumpkin puree in a crumble. Pumpkin puree for a pumpkin pie. Cubed pumpkin – for a crumble. On the other hand, why not? It’s a simplified version of pumpkin pie, with no messing with the crust.

However, I wanted to make it more elevated, so I decided to merry a pumpkin cheesecake with a crumble. Plus pecans. Also, as I have some softened cream cheese leftovers, I whipped up maple cream cheese topping to serve with the crumble. My friends, you’ve got to double or better triple its amount – it’s so good!

Certainly, with the festive season fast-approaching, you might consider this recipe.

Also, I hope you have a lot of Halloween fun. And please don’t eat too many chocolates – reserve some space for this

Cheers for now. See you (Gosh. The time!) already in November!

    Ben, this sounds so delicious! I love cheesecake any way I can get it, and since it’s pumpkin season, well, I’ve got to make pumpkin, but then you added the crumble! It’s all my fall favorites in one! Awesome recipe, thanks!

    I’m not a big one on halloween Ben. There’s always lots of kids about knocking on the doors for candies and treats here but both Lynne and I are generally out working or doing something else so we miss them. I wouldn’t want to miss this Pumpkin Cheesecake Crumble though, it sounds delicious. And that Mapple Cream Cheese Topping is something else!

    Hmmm, you’re right about the cubed pumpkin vs. pumpkin puree here. Although as you point out, this recipe is a twist on pumpkin pie. Plus, I think I would like pumpkin puree more than cubed pumpkin in this kind of recipe. And that maple cream cheese!? Talk about the perfect topping! I say you make both versions of this recipe and then let me decide which one I like better. Deal? :-)
