Pumpkin Ricotta Stovetop Cheesecake

Pumpkin Ricotta Stovetop Cheesecake

This lightened-up, gluten-free cheesecake features all the pumpkin-y goodness you expect in a holiday dessert, but it’s cooked on the stovetop, so you don’t have to schedule oven time around your holiday roast.  We lightened up this stovetop recipe using lowfat ricotta and lowfat cream cheese, cutting back on the sugar, and adding delicious pureed pumpkin. We made a gluten free crust using almond flour so even your gluten free friends and family can enjoy this dessert. The result is a delightful cross between pumpkin pie and cheesecake that everyone is sure to love!
