Flourless Pumpkin Cheesecake made with Nuts

Delicious ‘Cheesecake’ – Flourless & Gluten Free!

Oh, pumpkin pie! That delectable delight that wafts through the house during autumn and especially on Thanksgiving, plus or minus 30 days – yes, please!! That special olfactory and palate-pleasing combination of cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger and cloves – nothing screams Autumn yumminess in quite the same way!

There is no Thanksgiving without great pumpkin pie, so I just had to make one as well!

My recipe is more like cheesecake and is gluten free, egg free and dairy free, and it is not baked! GASP! I know, I know! I said ‘wafts through the house’! But that was to get your attention! Now that I have it, don’t give up on me! Giving this unconventional version a try is well worth it! You will not be disappointed! It bursts with flavor and tastes incredible! It is smooth, rich, creamy and simply delicious.

I created this recipe for people with different allergies, so they can also enjoy a great dessert during the holidays.

I used cashews for the filling, and they give the pie a creamy and rich flavor. I know how hard it is to give up dairy and finding a tasty replacement can be tricky. The simple nut crust is crunchy, and it adds a different texture. This dessert is perfect and yummy!
