Mini Pumpkin Cheesecakes with Brown Sugar Whipped Cream

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!

And what do you prefer?  Apple or pumpkin??
