  • 1
    Set cream cheese at room temperature for an hour to soften.
  • 2
    Melt the butter for the crust, then combine with crumbs and sugar. Press firmly into 9 inch sprinform pan, and place in refrigerator to cool and harden.

    Make caramel. Pour 1/2 cup sugar into a small, sturdy saucepan. Cover sugar with enough water to rise 1/2 inch above the sugar. Add the lemon juice. Cook over medium heat until the caramel browns, removing from the heat slightly before desired color is reached.
  • 4
    Allow the caramel to cool for a few minutes.
  • 5
    Combine caramel with the rest of filling ingredients and pour into prepared crust.
  • 6
    Refrigerate for 3-4 hours. Top with whipped cream and toffee chips before serving.

More About This Recipe
  • If you're at all like me, there's one reason to look forward to fall that far outstrips all the rest: the fact that zucchini season is over. Funnily enough, all my neighbors who previously had an overabundance of zucchini never seem to have any pumpkin to spare. I'm almost certain the pumpkins are all being used for delights like this Pumpkin Caramel Cheesecake Recipe. But don't worry, canned pumpkin works beautifully. This cheesecake is a no-bake variety, and owes its light, fluffy texture to the Yoplait greek yogurt in the base. It has a little homemade caramel, which sounds scary, but is super easy. Top with whipped cream, toffee sprinkles, DEVOUR (and be glad it's not zucchini). Serve with more whip and caramel, if desired. Hope you enjoy! (I have to admit, after making this recipe in our little test kitchen, we literally ate it for breakfast all week!)
