A Night of Baking Pumpkin Goodness

By special request, I made a pumpkin pie for my niece, Ashley:

There's the pumpkin wonderful in the oven -

(she loved it)

Once the pumpkin pie was done,
I started on the pumpkin ginger caramel
pecan cheesecake.
This is where Stella sits to oversee
all kitchen activities.
Usually, in a puddle of her own drool.

This is her classic look-away when I catch
her zeroing in on me, drooling

"What, me, expecting something from your bake-athon? Never!"
Cheesecake in the stand mixer.

Pecan and gingersnap crust.

Stella's focusing on the baking tools for good reason...

The clean up crew:
Just a quick once-over before the dishwasher.

The cheesecake before it goes into the oven.

And, after it's baked. Cracks and all.

And some bonus caramel sauce on top:
