When the first pumpkins appear at the markets, and the candy invades the stores, I find myself getting giddy: the holidays are here!

This is the marathon of deliciousness I look forward to all year – we’ve been training to build up our endurance to savor Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s. So I am so very excited to share that I am working with Kahlúa this holiday season – be prepared for all kinds of rum & coffee inspiration!

And my love for pumpkins kicks it all off.

Baking pumpkin cookies and making a batch of maple pumpkin butter was a good warm up, but when I learned that Kahlúa makes a limited edition Kahlúa Pumpkin Spice, I couldn’t wait to embrace this autumn inspired liqueur. A cheesecake was in order.

This No Bake Kahlúa Pumpkin Spice Cheesecake is the perfect way kick off the fall celebrations. I swirled maple pumpkin butter into creamy mascarpone with a delicious helping of Kahlúa Pumpkin Spice. This pumpkin spiced cheesecake filling was layered between crunchy cinnamon graham crackers and several hours later, I had a simple but divine dessert. To top it off, I candied some pecans for a little extra crunch.

No Bake Kahlúa Pumpkin Spice Cheesecake

Serves 8-10 | Prep: 10 minutes | Cook: 20 minutes, plus chill time

Creamy and dreamy, this no bake dessert has layers of fall flavor!

Ingredients

1 1/2 cups mascarpone cheese

1 cup heavy cream

1 cup pumpkin butter (try my <a href="http://kitchenconfidante.com/maple-pumpkin-butter-recipe" title="Simple Sundays | Maple Pumpkin Butter">Maple Pumpkin Butter recipe</a>)

4 tablespoons Kahlúa Pumpkin Spice

20-24 graham crackers

Candied pecans, for serving

Instructions

Prepare a loaf pan by lining it with plastic wrap, letting the wrap overhang the sides. 

In the bowl of an electric mixer, beat mascarpone cheese and heavy cream until the mixture is smooth and thick, like a firm whipped cream. Fold in the pumpkin butter and Kahlúa Pumpkin Spice.

Spread an even layer of the pumpkin spice cream in the bottom of the pan, about 1/4 inch thick. Place the graham crackers on the cream, cutting pieces of the graham cracker to fit the pan. Spread another layer of the cream over the graham crackers, and repeat the layering, ending with a layer of the cream.

Cover the cheesecake with plastic wrap and let it chill in the refrigerator overnight, or at least 8 hours.

 

Turn the cheesecake over a serving platter and remove the plastic wrap. Top with candied pecans and serve.

    What an incredible cheesecake. I like the surprise shape. But Kahlua and cheesecake seem like they are made for each other. Elegant dessert which would garner a lot of praise, when served. I love it!

    While I’m not quite ready for the holidays (wasn’t it just August?) I do love fall flavors and have been enjoying the arrival of squash and pumpkin. Also, I’m obsessed with cheesecake in all forms. But with booze in it? Totally on board.

    Even better with Kahlua, Liren! Beautiful, delicious looking cake that’s sure to be an Autumn or holiday tradition. Love how you’re using mascarpone and your pumpkin butter!
