Goat Cheese Pumpkin Cheesecake

As a recent member of Blogging Fifty group, I’m sharing this Goat Cheese Pumpkin Cheesecake with the Fifty and Fab blog hop! What is so special about being fifty? For starters, we are still alive! Just kidding…kind of. In my early teens, I thought being 50 is SO old and people shouldn’t live past it. Oh my, have I changed my mind in a hurry when I turned 50! LOL.

 

Why do we think we are fabulous? We are the super generation. We are caretakers for our kids, grandchildren, AND our elderly parents while still working full-time. Even though our stamina is declining we are constantly challenging ourselves and striving to go beyond our full potentials. What’s not fabulous about that?

So, what does a cheesecake have to do with being fifty?

 

If you are following my little blog you probably know that I dislike hate baking. I hate measuring with all my heart and yet, the older I get the more I bake. I was always intimidated by cheesecakes; however, I like love to eat them. It would be easy to buy a cheesecake and call it a day.

 

But no! I might as well sit in a rocking chair all day long and knit. That’s not how this grandma rocks. Sure, I know how to knit too but I’m not going down without learning how to make a cheesecake if it’s the last thing I do! But it doesn’t end with mastering the cheesecake. New challenges are awaiting me and I’m ready to tackle.

 

Turning fifty is not something you look forward to. But you can still make it fun. Find out how I celebrated it in this post. I know so many people who are 50+ and fabulous. They go parachuting, zip-lining, or bungee-jumping, you name it. I’m not that ambitious, thank you very much. But they also craft and create and inspire!

 

In my ‘old’ age I want to explore and learn as many things as possible and available to me. I share recipes, photography, and stories on my blog, but there is more than meets the eye. Gardening, knitting, crocheting, sewing, birding, crafting, writing, continuing education…the list goes on.

 

At my age, you don’t believe that, at midnight, your pumpkin can turn into anything else but a cheesecake. Yet, you don’t give up creating your fairy-tale. This goat cheese pumpkin cheesecake represents the can-do attitude many get in the autumn of their lives. Autumn, goat, pumpkin – get it? Here’s to all of us Fifty and Fab!!!

Discover a hint of earthy and nutty flavor in this luscious Goat Cheese Pumpkin Cheesecake with roasted pears and find out why is fabulous to be fifty.

 

INGREDIENTS:
Serves 8-12

  • 6 oz. (about 46) vanilla wafers
  • 2 oz. pecans
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 pinch ground cloves
  • 1 pinch ground nutmeg
  • ¼ teaspoon ground ginger
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 5 tablespoon butter, melted
  • 6 oz. crumbled goat cheese
  • 1 ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 16 oz. cream cheese at room temperature
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Roasted pears (optional):

  • 1 large pear (Bosc or Bartlett)
  • 4 tablespoon pure maple syrup

 

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In a food processor, pulse cookies and pecans until finely ground (it makes about 2 cups). Add sugar, cloves, nutmeg, ginger, cinnamon, salt and butter; pulse until combined.
  3. Firmly press crumb mixture into bottom and up the sides of a 9-inch springform pan. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until crust is golden and set. Cool completely before filling.
  4. Meanwhile, with an electric mixer set on low speed, beat together the goat cheese and sugar. Add the cream cheese and beat until combined. Add eggs one at a time mixing on low speed after each is added. Combine the remaining ingredients and continue to beat until the mixture is very smooth.
  5. Pour the batter into the prepared crust and bake for about 1 hour and 15 minutes, until edges begin to pull away from sides of pan; the center should be still soft.  Cool to room temperature then cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 5 hours or overnight.

Roasted pears (optional):

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.
  2. Slice pear lengthwise 1/8-inch thick (I used a mandoline slicer, but a knife works well too).
  3. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Coat with cooking spray. Arrange pear slices in a single layer on sheet and brush with 2 tablespoons maple syrup. Roast until pears are soft, about 15 minutes. Remove from oven and heat the broiler. Brush pears with remaining syrup and broil until browned in spots, about 3-4 minutes. Let cool.
  4. Arrange pear slices, overlapping slightly, on cheesecake.

Recipe Notes

You could also use graham crackers instead of vanilla wafers to make the crust.

The other cheesecakes I pushed myself into making are Tiramisu Cheesecake that got the most views and shares, Layered Maple Cheesecake, and my very first Red Velvet Cheesecake.

    Hi Jas,

    Your cheesecake looks delicious! I’m a big fan of goat cheese and cheesecake too for that matter but who isn’t. I love the fact that you thought 50 was sooo old when you were young, and I’m sure we all did. Funny thing, the older I get the younger every decade seems.

      Thank you, Carol! If you really like goat cheese, you can add 8 oz. Although I love it, I found its flavor in a cake was a bit too strong, so I only used 6 oz. this time. Hope you do give it a try 🙂 Thanks for stopping in!

    At 50 you ARE absolutely fabulous with loads of energy and so much love to give and not looking a day of being 40. Forget 50! Not to mention such a gorgeous and sexy looking Grandma too! 😀 😀 😀 I am so honoured and blessed to know you, Grams Jas! *muuacks*
    Funny that I’ve been thinking of what-can-I-do-with-pumpkin-thoughts lately! Heheh! And for sure I’ve never thought of using goat cheese for cheesecake. That’s such a great idea!!! I’m gonna be packing up the fats on my hips…

      I don’t know if I could give up cooking all together, Gail. Maybe if I lived alone…Growing up, mom always put homemade meal on the table, although she worked full-time. It’s in my veins, lol. I don’t always enjoy cooking, though, so I try to make enough meals ahead of time. That way I free up my evenings after work to visit grandchildren, blog, garden, or whatever. Thanks for taking the time to read my post 🙂

    Jas you are so funny. Only you can take goats, pumpkins and cheese and combine it with the fall of our lives. Haha. I have been experimenting with my girl and we are trying to make bake cheesecakes not the easy ones. So we will definitely be relying on your superwoman recipe here. Btw, the idea that you are a grandmother is just impossible. You look way too young to be a grandma. Or grandmothers don’t look like they used to! Pinned it twice!

      You caught that, hehe. I didn’t think of it originally, Mary. As I was writing the post I thought, what a coincidence! In my country we associate goats and pumpkins with being old, then it’s fall season and we’re talking about autumn of our lives. There you have it. Did you know that word pumpkin originated from the Greek word Pepõn? Now my favorite movie “my big fat Greek wedding” makes sense, haha!

Anyway, who cares about age, it matters how you feel inside, at least that’s what my mom always said and now I know what she meant! Your cheesecake looks stunning, as all of your recipes, and this one comes in the right time for fall with the touch of pumpkin, I know I’d love it!

OK, I’m embarrassed to admit it…I not only hate to cook, but baking comes under that heading too, right?? Plus I’m trying desperately to shed some pounds, but your cheesecake looks SO GOOD! I would love to have a piece. I hate to cook, but obviously that doesn’t apply to eating! I also checked out how you celebrated your 50th! Happy belated! You look much too young to be 50.

      So true, Jann! The goat cheese just lifts the flavor of this cake, it doesn’t overpower it at all 🙂

    I’m way past 50 and life is good! What a unique sounding cheesecake with the goat cheese and the pears. I’m sure it’s delicious! I struggle with food photos, but yours are always great. Thank you so much for sharing this recipe at Party in Your PJ’s. I pinned to my dessert board and shared.

      Thank you, Teresa, it means a lot! Your food photos are good too! You can increase the vibrance and contrast to make them pop a little and you’re golden. 🙂 Have a happy Thanksgiving!
