Leftover Cinnamon Rolls Pumpkin Spice CheesecakesPumpkin Spice the official flavor of fall…yes, I’m a spice girl! I’m one of those who buys just about anything pumpkin spice. I have pumpkin spice lip balm in my purse, pumpkin spice candy corn on my desk, pumpkin spice coffee in the cupboard along with pumpkin spice creamer, pumpkin spice biscotti, and I may have a few chocolate caramel pumpkin spice truffles hidden away for safe keeping. I was always one to think there could never be enough pumpkin spice products until I heard a new release this year-pumpkin spice deodorant. Haven’t you heard? No, I will not be embracing that pumpkin spice product for fear my hubby wouldn’t embrace me!

Leftover Cinnamon Roll Pumpkin Spice Cheesecakes: I have to admit these are my new obsession and I’m already planning on adding them to my Thanksgiving dessert menu. If you like filled King Cakes or danishes, for those not lucky enough to live in King Cake territory, then you will love these. Oh, and they are so easy, too-just press, fill, and bake!

Put your TO COOK IS TO CREATE thinking cap on: Not a pumpkin spice fan? What other spices or flavors could you add to the cheesecake batter? Think about all the different flavored extracts. How about adding nuts or chocolate chips to the mixture? No leftover cream cheese icing? Simply whisk milk into powdered sugar until desired consistency or really elevate the cheesecake by using rum or brandy instead of milk. Not an icing fan? Drizzle with caramel.

    The aroma will put a smile on your face even before you take one bite. 🎃 This is such an easy recipe and has an extraordinary Fall taste. I can just picture sitting by the fireplace in a cozy chair enjoying my coffee and pumpkin spice cream cheese cinnamon roll …too bad I live in such a warm climate, not cold yet. However these yummy treats warm my heart ❤️.
