Mini Pumpkin Cheesecake Pan and a Giveaway! (closed)

Mini Pumpkin Cheesecake Pan

Miniature cheesecakes are a great way introduce both portion control and cuteness into dessert. You can always bake them in a muffin pan, but this Mini Pumpkin Cheesecake Pan gives you a few advantages that regular muffin pan doesn’t. You don’t need any paper liners for these pans because the bottoms are removable. All you need to do is loosen the sides of the cheesecake and push up on the bottom of each cavity, and the mini cheesecake will slide right out. The sides of the pan are nonstick, too, which really makes this easy to use.. Also, the cavities are pumpkin-shaped, making them perfect for fall and winter cheesecakes, even if they’re not pumpkin flavored.

As it so happens, I have one of these lovely Chicago Metallic Mini Pumpkin Cheesecake Pans to give away this week, and since my cookbook will be shipping in just a few days, I’m going to include a FREE copy of the cookbook along with the pan, making this a giveaway extra special. Now, there are no mini pumpkin cheesecake recipes in the book, but the pan comes with a good basic pumpkin cheesecake recipe to get you started with your pan.

To win, just leave a comment telling me what you favorite cheesecake flavor is on this post by Friday, October 23rd . A winner will be selected randomly. Don’t forget to include your e-mail on the form where you leave a comment (not in the comment itself) so I can contact you if you’re the winner!

Update: This Contest is now closed!

    I make a cheesecake that has bits of chocolate bars in them. My favorite is made with Skor bar, but I’ve also tried Caramilk and Snickers. It is delicious.

    My mom never made cheesecake when I was little but my older sister would bring it to family meals sometimes and I remember being a BIG fan of her blueberry cheesecake! I love fruit topping on cheesecake so blueberry or cherry are certainly my favorites!

    I have a really fantastic recipe for lemon cheesecake, which is probably my favorite. Especially when I make a blueberry sauce to drizzle on top!

    My favorite flavors of cheesecake are pumpkin (actually!) , new york with raspberry topping, and chocolate… although last year I made a dulce de leche cheesecake and a gingerbread cheesecake that were both tasty, too.

    this is just TOO CUTE! My favorite flavor of cheesecake (so far.. though of course i am always up to sampling to find a new favorite πŸ™‚ is Bailey’s Irish Cream Cheesecake…. ESPECIALLY now that Bailey’s makes a caramel version. With a hot-chocolate mix and graham cracker crumb crust, of course SLURP!

    I think a classic, baked New York Style cheesecake with the thin layer of sweetened sour cream on top is my favorite! With a cherry or strawberry sauce, of course. πŸ™‚

    My boyfriend loves to make cheese cake. The best two he’s made were pumpkin spice with gingersnap crust and a chocolate crust with raspberry swirl.

    How interesting to look at everyone’s choices. I had no idea there were so many flavor options out there. It makes me look at cheesecake (and everything else!) in a whole new way.

    I’m still going to stick with dark chocolate raspberry though…at least for right now.

  • Sarah

    Pumpkin, but sometimes I just want a piece of classic, plain, delicious, cheesecake.

  • Vanessa

    I prefer vanilla too. You can top it with caramel, chocolate, cherry, blueberry – whatever you’re in the mood for.

    My favorite cheesecake flavor is NY-style with nothing on it. Sounds boring, I know, but if it’s creamy and indulgent, I can sit and watch a girly movie, and enjoy every bite!!!

  • Jessica Phelan

    Turtle cheesecake! Love the combination of caramel and pecans. It is especially delish if you sub the pecans for cashews. But, I think everything is better with cashews.

  • Jacqueline

    I haven’t had too many different cheesecake flavors, so I’m gonna have to go with original with strawberry topping. SO GOOD!

    Great giveaway! I’ve already pre-ordered my cookbook, so I am most excited about the mini pumpkin cheesecake pan, but another copy to give as a gift would be awesome.

    Best flavour of cheesecake hands down is caramel apple, especially at this time of year.

    I’d say it’s a tie between key lime and chocolate but if I had to choose I’d pick chocolate.

    My all time favorite cheesecake would have to be plain New York style cheesecake. No fruit toppings either. Plain!

  • Colleen

    One of my favorite cheesecakes is a chocolate cheesecake sitting on a pistachio crust, covered in dark chocolate ganache and sprinkled with chopped pistachios! The sweet/salty combination is wonderful.

  • Brooke

    Oreo cheesecake would have to be my favorite!
