I’m here to show you just how easy this pilgrim pumpkin pie is to make. If you’ve never roasted pumpkin in order to make a pumpkin pie, then you’re missing out on part of the fun.

Pumpkin Cheesecake Tartlets with a Cookie Crust

Pumpkin Cheesecake Tartlets with a Cookie Crust

I developed this easy recipe for Pumpkin Cheesecake Tartlets with a Cookie Crust after I’d rewritten and remade my great grandmother’s recipe for Fence Cake (aka applesauce cake). 

Since the cookie crust for great grandma Patterson’s Fence Cake is ‘almost’ my favorite part of that particular dessert (not that I could choose), I wanted to use it again in another dessert recipe. And this is the story of how these delicious Pumpkin Cheesecake Tartlets with a Cookie Crust were born.

I’m going to be perfectly honest with you here (as I always am). This recipe idea for Strawberry Orange Pie Cake is not my own. I saw it in one of my back issues of Food Network Magazine and thought it looked like something I wanted to try. I did, however, adapt the recipe ingredients and also put my own touch on the lattice pie crust topping with those cute little strawberry accents to up the cuteness factor.
