Baileys pumpkin spice cheesecake has hints of cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves to add Autumnal flavour to a classic creamy cheesecake. The limited edition Baileys pumpkin spice adds flavour and depth making a perfect dessert for Halloween parties or bonfire night.
There is no mistaking that it is Autumn now. The mornings are really dark and have a definite cold tinge. The leaves in the trees are turning an array of spectacular colours. Piles of leaves line the pavements and verges swirling in the wind. It is so tempting to swish though them kicking them up as you go. Autumn is a time for comfort food. Think of steaming sausage casseroles served with mash and vegetables or warming barbecue baked beans and sausages. Halloween is upon us, a time for ghosts and ghouls knocking on the door and asking for treats. It is also a great excuse to have a party, sharing food and drink with friends. Why not round off the night with a few scary movies and some popcorn?

There are two ways of making cheesecake, the no bake method or the baking method. For my Baileys pumpkin spice cheesecake I decided to use the baking method. While it does take longer it makes for a creamier and more delicious cheesecake. Whilst it does take longer to make it is just as simple as no bake cheesecake. The extra hours are in the baking and waiting for it to cool down. The hardest part is the waiting for it to cool. There is just something about cheesecake which makes you want to eat it straight away. The smell of the baking cheesecake wafts round the house enticing you to eat it. It is well worth the wait, the creamy cheesecake has a glorious hint of Autumn spice that is warming and filling. It is difficult to resist having another slice.
The base is a simple mix of biscuit crumbs and butter baked for fifteen minutes. I chose to use oat biscuits, but any would work. Digestive biscuits are always a good choice or ginger biscuits would add extra warm to the cheesecake. The filling is simply cream cheese, cream, sugar and eggs mixed together with some Baileys Punpkin Spice and a little flour. This is then baked in the oven for an hour until firm. You might be surprised to learn that cheesecake contains cheese. My husband did not believe me when I told him this. The clue is definitely in the name. To finish the cheesecake I whipped up the leftover cream and added some pretty chocolate decorations. The resulting bake did not last long.
Why not pin the recipe to make later?
