Pumpkin Spice Cheesecake Pop Tarts


A pumpkin pie, a cheesecake and a pop tart just got together had a baby and created this delicious pop tart. 
This has to be one of my favorite combinations during the this pumpkin spice season. I've made a pumpkin spice cheesecake for the holidays for the last couple of years.

If you have been following my blog you would have seen several other pumpkin spice post: Pumpkin Spice Extract, Pumpkin Spice Syrup, Slow Cooker Pumpkin Butter, Pumpkin Spice Pound Cake, and Pumpkin Spice Sugar Cookies.
So this year I decided to combine a pumpkin pie and a cheesecake in a little pastry instead of making a whole pumpkin spice cheesecake. I will be making hand pies closer to the holiday dinner season called Thanksgiving in America so keep an eye out for that.


I've made some other tasty pop tart last month Maple Brown Sugar Cinnamon.
