Culinary Corner: Celebrate National Pumpkin Cheesecake Day with Dunkin’

Did you know that today is National Pumpkin Cheesecake Day? Here at Dunkin’, we are celebrating with our very own Pumpkin Donut Cheesecake Bar recipe!


We love any excuse to indulge in Pumpkin, especially when it is this simple. All you need to do crumble a few Dunkin’ Donuts Pumpkin Donuts, bake for 20 minutes, and add on our pumpkin cream cheese topping! See the full recipe below.

We paired this autumn delight with a Pumpkin Macchiato, our handcrafted espresso beverage that features layers of steamed milk and pumpkin flavored swirl, topped with a double shot of Dunkin’ Donuts’ rich, freshly-brewed espresso and finished off with a layer of foam.
