Hello Lil’ Luna readers! It’s me Natalie, from Life Made Simple. I’m back with another no-bake recipe today (P.S. did you catch my last one? If not, you’ll definitely want to check it out here!) These individual no bake pumpkin cheesecake treats are super easy to make—you can whip them up in just 15 minutes! I might be biased, but I’d much rather make these individual no bake pumpkin cheesecakes for holiday get togethers rather than slaving over an actual pumpkin cheesecake for 5+ hours!

These pumpkin cheesecakes are contained in individual jars. Each jar has a delicious, buttery gingersnap (OR Biscoff cookie) crust, along with a creamy pumpkin cheesecake filling. The light and fluffy cheesecake has the perfect amount of pumpkin flavor, along with all of your favorite fall spices. The filling can easily be piped into the jars using a ziploc bag with the tip cut off (this is much easier and quicker than spooning it in)!

No Bake Pumpkin Cheesecake Toppings:

I like to make my own whipped cream and use a piping tip to make it look extra pretty on top of the cheesecake. If you want to go the extra mile, here are some things you can put on top of the whipped cream!

  • Sprinkle ground cinnamon
  • Caramel drizzle
  • Chocolate drizzle
  • Mini chocolate chips
  • White chocolate shavings
  • Sprinkles
  • Crushed gingersnaps or Biscoff cookies

Pumpkin Cheesecake No Bake

Can you make these ahead of time?

You could definitely make these in advance for special occasions, as long as it’s within 24 hours! Otherwise, the crust might get a little soggy. Just make them (without toppings) and keep in the fridge until you’re ready to serve. Then you can quickly pull them out, add your toppings, and serve chilled. If you’re not making them ahead of time, there’s no need to chill them before serving, because the ingredients are already cold.

I hope you’ll give these individual no-bake pumpkin cheesecakes a try, they were divine! We gobbled them up right away, not a single crumb was left!

Author Natalie | Life Made Simple


  • 18 round gingersnaps, or Biscoff cookies crushed
  • 2 TB unsalted butter melted
  • 1 1/2 c heavy cream divided
  • 8 oz cream cheese
  • 1/2 c brown sugar packed
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3/4 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp ground ginger
  • pinch ground cloves
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 14 oz can pumpkin puree chilled


  1. In a small bowl, combine cookie crumbs and melted butter. Mix until evenly coated. Press into the bottom of 6 jars or glasses.

  2. In the bowl of a stand mixer or a large mixing bowl, whip the heavy cream until stiff.

  3. In a separate mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese until fluffy. Add the brown sugar, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, cloves and salt and beat for 2 minutes. Using a spatula, fold in the pumpkin puree, then ¾ of the whipped cream.

  4. Scoop into a ziploc bag, cut the corner and pipe over the cookie base. Add the remaining whipped cream to a ziploc bag, cut the corner and pipe on top (I used a tip but you don't have to). Garnish with a sprinkle of cinnamon, nutmeg, white chocolate shavings or caramel.

  5. Serve immediately or refrigerate for up to 24 hours.

    Where did you find the adorable jars for the no bake pumpkin cheesecake?


    I love this! I can’t wait to try it. <3


    When you say pumpkin purée do you mean canned pumpkin or pumpkin pie filling? Thanks!


    About to make these right now!!! My pumpkin craving is on overdrive! 🙂


    Oh my goodness these look so delicious. The perfect fall dessert!


    Loved the individual no bake pumpkin cheesecake! The fact that they are not too sweet is great as the pumpkin and spices are most flavorful. I used chocolate brownie type cookies for the crust as I happened to have them on hand.😋


    I tried this recipe and the flavor was ok but pretty bland. I added more of the spices and confectioners sugar to the whipped cream before folding it into the mixture. It wasnt what i was looking for and really only slightly resembled cheesecake. we ended up using it as a bagel spread which was much more satisfying.


    This recipe looks so delicious! Hi, I’m Anita visiting from Link Party Palooza.

    Margaret Pereira

    That looks amazing! Can not wait to try it, I love everything with pumpkin!


    This looks delicious!!! I’m all for cheesecake, pumpkin, and no bake. Can’t wait to try it out.


    Hi! Could this be put into a pie form? Thank you!


    the pumpkin cheesecake calls for whipped cream but doesn’t state how much?
