The Perfect Dessert For The Holidays

One of the desserts I love for holiday get-togethers is cheesecake. It wasn’t until a couple years ago that I even thought about a pumpkin flavored cheesecake. Can you just picture how delicious that flavor would be in a cheesecake form? So, when Eli’s Cheesecake hit me up to review their Pumpkin Spice Cheesecake, how could I say, “no.” I couldn’t.


The cheesecake was my contribution to the Thanksgiving dessert table. Only a few of us in the family are cheesecake fans, and we dove into the slices as soon as dessert was served. My brother and his girlfriend shared a slice. He was so funny because he took his first bite and all he did was make sounds like he was loving it. Kid you not. His girlfriend turned to him asking him if he was liking it. He just kept nodding and gave her the thumbs up. Next bite went in and another thumbs up. It was rather amusing to watch.

She and I were next with our bites. As always, Eli’s Cheesecake has a rich, creamy texture. The pumpkin flavor was spot on and you could definitely taste the spice. Now, for me, I wasn’t a fan of the spice. I do have to say for the record I’m the same way with pretty much every pumpkin spice recipe. I like straight pumpkin flavor. Now, if you like all things pumpkin spice, think PSL, then you will have to get your hands on this cheesecake.

If you’re planning on bringing a dessert to a party during the holidays, snatch up a cheesecake! Of course, they don’t only have cheesecakes. They have pies, cakes, and tarts as well. I’m most interested in trying their Apple Bavarian Tart. The apples look so amazing in it! Now, if you’re Vegan or have Gluten issues, they’ve got you covered on that front as well!

It's time for dessert! We're having @elischeesecake pumpkin cheesecake! #sp #HappyThanksgiving!

This sounds yummy! I have to tell you I agree with the PSL taste, that is not really pumpkin but still yummy once in a while.
