It's hard to resist this pumpkin latte cheesecake recipe. Use extra pretzel crumbs or toffee chips for a garnish. —Arlene Erlbach, Morton Grove, Illinois

Ingredients

  • 2 cups finely crushed pretzels
  • 3 tablespoons light brown sugar
  • 10 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 large egg white
  • FILLING:
  • 2 tablespoons instant espresso powder
  • 1 tablespoon hot water
  • 1 can (15 ounces) pumpkin
  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1-1/2 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 1 cup brickle toffee bits

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°. In a small bowl, mix pretzels and brown sugar; stir in butter and egg white. Press onto bottoms and up the sides of greased muffin cups. Bake until firm and lightly browned, 10-12 minutes. Cool 10 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks to cool completely.
  2. For filling, in a large bowl, dissolve espresso powder in hot water. Beat in pumpkin, cream cheese, brown sugar and pie spice until smooth. In another large bowl, beat cream until stiff peaks form; reserve 1 cup for topping. Fold remaining whipped cream into pumpkin mixture; stir in toffee bits.
  3. Spoon into pretzel cups. Top with reserved whipped cream. Refrigerate at least 1 hour before serving. If desired, top with additional toffee bits.
