I’m not much of a dessert person. That’s not to say that I don’t like sweet things – ask my friends about how sweet I make my coffee, and I don’t go to bed many nights without a cookie as a snack. But when it comes to ordering dessert after a meal, I’m usually too full to enjoy it. Well, it’s now two days after Thanksgiving, and I present to you my Thanksgiving dessert…pumpkin cheesecake with a gingerbread cookie crust drizzled with decadent caramel sauce. I would attribute this to someone if I could piece together all of the recipes I perused on the Internet, but the reality is that I ended up with something all my own. And it started with this collection of winter squash from my CSA farm. Now I know I called this a pumpkin cheesecake, but that’s only because pumpkin-delicata-sugarloaf was just too long. The reality is that most sweet winter squash such as these (along with butternut and acorn) can be used interchangeably in many recipes.
