Mini Pumpkin Cheesecake Notes
- Crushed gingersnaps would work well when preparing the crusts for these Mini Pumpkin Cheesecakes. However, if you’re planning to use these cookies, you’ll need to omit the spices because you don’t want to overdo it with those spices.
- If you don’t have sour cream to add to your cream cheese filling, you can replace it with something else, such as Greek yogurt, which has a similar taste and texture to it.
- While lime juice goes great when added to the cream cheese filling mixture, you can use lemon juice as an alternative, which will work just as well as the lime juice.
