Ingredients

  • To make the pretzel graham crust:
  • cups mini pretzels
  • 6 graham cracker rectangles
  • ¼ salt
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 6 tablespoons butter melted
  • For the cheesecake filling:
  • cup granulated sugar
  • 3 8 ounce packages cream cheese, softened to room temperature
  • 1 can 15 ounces pumpkin purée
  • ½ cup Greek yogurt
  • 3 eggs at room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 cups Reese's Pieces
  • fall sprinkles optional

Instructions

To make the pretzel graham crust:

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Spray an 8" springform pan with baking spray and set aside.
  • In a food processor, pulse the pretzels, graham crackers, salt, and sugar to form crumbs.
  • Add the melted butter and pulse to form a mixture the consistency of wet sand.
  • Place the springform pan on a parchment-lined baking sheet.
  • Press the crust crumbs evenly in the bottom of the prepared springform pan, and bake in a preheated oven for 7-10 minutes.
  • Remove and cool while preparing the filling.

To make the Reese's Pieces Pumpkin Cheesecake filling:

  • In a large mixing bowl, blend the sugar, cream cheese, pumpkin, and Greek yogurt until smooth.
  • Add the eggs (one at a time), vanilla, and ground cinnamon.
  • Continue blending until no lumps remain and the mixture is smooth and creamy.
  • Switch to a wooden spoon or spatula and stir the candy into the cheesecake batter.
  • Pour the cheesecake filling in an even layer into the springform pan.
  • Sprinkle the surface of the cheesecake with fall sprinkles (if desired) and bake in a preheated oven for 60-70 minutes or until the cheesecake is only just slightly jiggly in the center.
  • Remove from the oven and allow the cheesecake to cool for 30 minutes on a wire rack.
  • Run a knife around the diameter of the pan to loosen the cake, and remove the collar from the base of the pan.
  • Allow the cheesecake to cool completely and refrigerate until ready to serve.
  • Remove the cheesecake from the refrigerator at least 30 minutes before serving for the best flavor.
