New York Style Pumpkin Cheesecake recipe is a delicious cheesecake that is made with real pumpkin puree. Topped with cinnamon and dollops of whipped cream, this cheesecake is delicious!
Fun Fact: I grew up on a small farm as a child. At the ripe age of 10, my responsibilities included that of milking goats, feeding cows, rabbits, chickens, pigs, and YES cleaning out their coops and barns.
I would get home from school and change into my outside clothes and boots to tackle my farm yard duties.
YES, it was a ton of work, but I wouldn’t have it any other way. I saw animals come into the world, and I held calves that sadly passed.
My real-world experiences with farmyard animals helped to shape me into the person I am today. After my father died, my mom had to get rid of the animals and that was the end of our farm years.
Since we are such a dairy loving household, I wanted to share a special recipe that we enjoy this time of year that features some of my favorite dairy products- cheese & milk!
