Mini Pumpkin Cheesecakes 

Makes 12

12 foil cupcake liners


12 (2-inch) gingersnap cookies

1/2 cup sugar

1 cup cooked pumpkin

1/2 cup light sour cream

1 (8-ounce) package Neufchatel cheese, softened

2 eggs

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon nutmeg

1 teaspoon vanilla


1/2 cup light sour cream

1 tablespoon powdered sugar

12 pecan halves

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line muffin pans with foil liners; place one cookie in each liner.

In large mixing bowl combine sugar, pumpkin, one-half cup light sour cream and Neufchatel cheese. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until light and fluffy, two to three minutes. Continue beating, adding eggs, cinnamon, nutmeg and vanilla,  until cream, one to two minutes.

Spoon batter over each cookie. Cups will be very full. Bake for 40 to 50 minutes or until the cheesecakes are set and a wooden pick inserted in the center comes out clean.

Let stand 15 minutes; remove from pans. Meanwhile, in small bowl stir together one-half cup light sour cream and one tablespoon powdered sugar. Spread topping over each cheesecake. Garnish with pecan halves. Refrigerate at least one hour to chill; store refrigerated.
