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!

  14. 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.

  28. 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.
