The big question of fall desserts is “Do you prefer apple or pumpkin?” I can never decide. Luckily, with most desserts you can do a version of each. Not too long ago, I made Mini Apple Pie Cheesecakes by Baked by Rachel. I was finally able to make the alternate, Mini Pumpkin Cheesecakes. I took components of three different mini cheesecake recipes to make them.
I made the crust and started putting the cheesecake in the cavities. Everything was going great.
And as I filled the last one, I saw the egg sitting on the counter. Ugh, I was so mad. It was definitely too late to go back and try to add it to the filling so I put them in the oven and hoped for the best.
The cheesecakes did come out a little funny looking. They kind of sunk rather than dome up a little.
Despite how they look, they still taste great! And the brown sugar whipped cream? It not only covers the funny looking part, but it is delicious!

These make a great dessert to bring to a get together after that big Thanksgiving meal. You get the pumpkin fix without having to worry about slicing up a pie and getting plates and forks dirty. Just grab and go!
And what do you prefer? Apple or pumpkin??
