Pumpkin Cheesecake Mousse

Two weeks ago we had a cold spell and I was all like, “I’M READY FOR PUMPKIN!” I bought mini pumpkins to decorate my kitchen, I bought some fall scented candles, and watched pumpkin everything blow up on social media. Fast forward to today and, despite not even having reached October, I’m already over pumpkin. That being said, I have to do at least one pumpkin recipe every year, so I’m going to do it now and get it over with. This is the last time you’ll hear me talk pumpkin this year ( <— total lie). I’m usually a fan of savory pumpkin recipes more so than sweets, but I just happened to have all the ingredients for this Pumpkin Cheesecake Mousse on hand, so that’s what I whipped up today. Zero regrets, guys. ZERO.
