Here I am again with one more portable dessert in a jar, Pumpkin Cheesecake Jars! Pumpkin Cake Jars, Mint Cheesecake Jars, and Mocha Cheesecake Jars are just a few of our family’s favorites desserts in jars. And now we’ve got seasonal Pumpkin Cheesecake in 1/2 pint wide mouth mason jars. Perfect for lunches, or portion control or just an interesting twist on dessert.
Pumpkin Pie in a Mason Jar
Pumpkin Cheesecake is actually BETTER and more loved by my family than regular old pumpkin pie. Yes, even the kid who hates cheesecake ate and loved this Pumpkin Cheesecake. The fact that it was in jar made it more fun to eat. And more fun to find in his lunch one day at school.
I’ve been packing kids lunches for 20 years now. I like to send a dessert once or twice a week in the form of a cookie or some sort of quick bread. Desserts in jars make a nice change. It’s a neat and clean way to send cake or pie to school. And the jar means it’s not a crushed mess by the time lunch rolls around. Can ANY child take a dessert to school in a jar? I’m not so sure about that it would definitely depend on the kid and their lunch box carrying ways.
Looking for more pumpkin desserts??I’ve got them! Since I don’t care for Pumpkin Pie, or pie, in general, I’m always kind of looking for OTHER seasonal ways to use pumpkin. I like it in cake and cheesecake but also in drinks. I think my problem is with pie not pumpkin. Check out all my other tasty Pumpkin Recipes!
I love to make baked goods in jars, like my Pumpkin Cake Jars, Mint Cheesecake Jars, Mocha Cheesecake Jars and now Pumpkin Cheesecake Jars. They're SO easy to take along for desserts in lunches, they don't end up crushed and mangled, they travel really well. And I think the 1/2 pint wide mouth jars make the perfect size lunch dessert. Make these Mocha Cheesecake jars for lunches this week, your people will thank you!
