This squash is so decadently buttery and sweet that it is difficult to believe that it is not dessert. We owe our sweet neighbor our gratitude for supplying us fresh, organic acorn squash lovingly plucked from her garden. She has ignited a squash passion in our house and this dish has become a nightly delight.
We're big fans of pumpkin here. Each year, we roast up a big pumpkin, make our own puree, and spend the rest of fall delighting in tasty pumpkin delights. This rich and creamy cheesecake is now at the top of our pumpkin recipe list.
This is how to make home made pumpkin puree for recipes such as pumpkin pie, pumpkin cheesecake, and so on. I usually take a large pumpkin and freeze the purée in 2 cup baggies. This is also an amazing baby food!
