This luscious dessert is the best of both worlds: pumpkin pie with a creamy cheesecake layer. This make-ahead dessert is perfect for an autumnal dinner party. Pastry chef extraordinaire Helen Fletcher created this delectable dessert, one of her hundreds of sensational desserts that she has composed and published. Helen is the pastry chef at Tony’s Restaurant and we are so fortunate that she teaches cooking classes at Kitchen Conservatory once a month every month. She attracts a loyal following.
