It’s time to take your pumpkin spice latte addiction to the next level—at The Cheesecake Factory. With its behemoth of a menu (which offers more than 250 dishes made from scratch daily), The Cheesecake Factory obviously specializes in its over-the-top cheesecakes. This fall and winter, The Cheesecake Factory is offering a few new-to-the-menu options that are both delicious and philanthropic.
Pumpkin and Pumpkin Pecan Cheesecake:
The Pumpkin Pecan Cheesecake features a decadent and gooey layer of pecan-studded filling topped with a thick layer of dense, creamy and lightly spiced cheesecake housed in a yielding crust and topped with a generous swirl of whipped cream. The Pumpkin Cheesecake offers the same pumpkin cheesecake filling—just twice as thick, minus the pecan filling. This cheesecake was basically a dream for Thanksgiving dessert-lovers—for those who can never decide between pumpkin or pecan pie, the Pumpkin Pecan Cheesecake is the perfect way to satisfy all your cravings at once.
Plus, each slice comes with a philanthropic bonus—for each slice sold, The Cheesecake Factory will donate 25 cents to feed Americans in the communities in which it operates.
Chocolate Hazelnut Cheesecake topped with Hazelnut Crunch and Nutella:
The Cheesecake Factory adds one new cheesecake to their menu every year. This hazelnut-studded, uber-creamy cheesecake is the 2016 addition to the menu. With swirls of chocolate and cream cheese into a rich chocolate-hazelnut base, the literal icing on the top of this cheesecake was the best part—a crunchy, creamy layer underlying a swath of Nutella. The thick graham cracker crust added additional textural contrast: all together, it tastes like a Ferrero Rocher candy in cheesecake form.
