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!

    Favorite cheesecake, that’s a tough one. I really like a turtle one–pecans, caramel and chocolate. But favorite is probably just a really good plain one with maybe some berries on top!

    Plain cheesecake, with plenty of blueberry topping! 🙂

    I love the plain cheesecake with fresh fruit on top. I really like the “cakey” cheesecakes. So delicious!

    For me, there’s nothing better than turtle cheesecake. Cheesecake, chocolate, caramel, and pecans? Divine!

    I don’t really have a favorite–I love it all! If I were forced to choose, I’d pick Chocolate peanut butter cheesecake.

    A white chocolate key lime cheesecake that I concocted for a Daring Baker’s challenge is my favorite cheesecake of ALL TIME!!! EVER!!! So creamy and rich and smooth and decadent with the sweet tang of lime! If my body wasn’t genetically designed to send all my fat straight to my belly I would live off of it!!! It was inspired by and tastes exactly like the key lime truffle from See’s candy…I’m drooling, cool.

    Plain ol’ New York cheesecake will always be my favorite, but if I had to pick something more “interesting” I’d definitely go with pumpkin!

    Hi! My favorite cheesecake is any kind with fruit on top-strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, whatever! It makes me feel that what I am eating is not that bad for me because I am having it with fruit! LOL

    That is a clever pan, although I’m not sure how many batches I would be able to make before I lost some of the bottoms :O/
    It would make some fun and delicious treats to bring to family gatherings.

  • Laura

    that pan looks great, but my roommates have started making fun of how many cake pans I have so I’d better not buy one. My favourite is strawberry cheesecake.

    As the odd ball of my family, I’m actually not a big fan of cheesecake. But I bake them regularly for everyone else, and the concensus is that it’s best plain withe some cherries scattered on top.

    I must go with lemon cheesecake, myself. I had this wonderful version with a crunchy meringue topping last spring and I nearly died it was so good. I’m still thinking about it six months later!

    My very favorite flavor of cheesecake is white chocolate. I like a white chocolate brandy sauce with it and garnished with raspberries and a sprig of mint. This always gets ooooh’s and aaaaaaah’s at our dinner parties.
