The weather is finally cooling down and fall has officially settled in here in Liberty County which means pumpkins! Pumpkin flavored anything is a must during this time of year so we asked our local baker and friend, Judi Mills (owner of Southern Sweets Café & Bakery), if she had a recipe using pumpkin she would share to help us celebrate. She had a well-loved recipe for pumpkin cheesecake, which you will find below, and just in time to help us celebrate National Pumpkin Cheesecake Day as well which is Sunday, October 21. Happy baking and Happy National Pumpkin Cheesecake Day!
