This little recipe falls under each of those categories.
When I arrived home from work today, I had a package waiting for me from Alouette.
Among the cheeses included in the package was a tub of the company’s limited edition cheesecake flavored soft spreadable cheese.
I ate about four fingers full of the cheese (peanut butter finger style 😉 ), before a light bulb went off.
I love cheesecake, but I prefer flavored cheesecakes, as I find them more palatable. On Monday I purchased a can of pumpkin and I had a feeling I could combine the canned pumpkin with the cheesecake spread to make a delicious dessert.
I tasted my concoction and knew I had a winner! It tasted like pumpkin cheesecake mousse!
I want more!

Enjoy your night, friends! 😀
