Ingredients:

2/3 Cup Cashews, soaked 4 hours- overnight

1/4 Cup Coconut Oil, melted

1/4 Cup Pure Maple Syrup

1 Cup Pumpkin Puree

4 Teaspoons Lemon Juice

1/2 Teaspoon Pumpkin Spice

Crust

1/2 Cup Pecans

8-10 Large Medjool Dates, pits removed

Method:

Cut out 9 pieces of parchment paper into 1/2″ X 6-7″ strips.  Place middle of parchment strips flat side down into bottom of large muffin tins (see photo above), set aside.

Crust; Pulse pecans and medjool dates in a food processor on high until a sticky, crumbly mixture is formed. Mixture should stick together when pinched or pressed, pulse in  another date or two if needed.

Divide crust mixture between prepared 9 large muffin tins. Press crust mixture into bottom of muffin tins with the back of a spoon. Place crust in freezer 20-30 minutes to firm up.

Filling; In a blender or food processor, blend soaked cashews, coconut oil, pumpkin puree, maple syrup, lemon juice, and pumpkin spice until smooth and creamy, about 3-4 minutes on high.

Spread filling on top of prepared crust, dividing evenly between the 9. Place Pumpkin Cheesecakes in freezer for 1-2 hours or until firmed up enough to keep their shape.

Remove cheesecakes from tins by lifting each side of parchment strips.

Refrigerate until ready to serve. Store in refrigerator up to 3-4 days.

Makes: 9
