Fall Piecakens: Pumpkin Pie in a Cheesecake & Apple Piecaken !

It's that time of year again: it's pumpkin season! So get those pumpkin pies you are making into cake, because let's face it: pumpkin piecaken is the best kind of piecaken. But if you're backyard is anything like mine, and you have too many apples to know what to do with, then it may also be time to make a Fall piecaken treat: apple pie in a cheesecake!

Here are a few photos of my Fall piecakens this year, which are sliced and headed to Buoy's Eatery here on Manitoulin Island. I've also included the links to the recipes here on the blog.
Pumpkin Pie in a Cheesecake:

You can top it with pumpkin-spiced icing (1/2 tsp mace and 1 tsp cinnamon added to your favourite vanilla buttercream icing) or with milk chocolate ganache, like in the recipe I posted here:
Apple Pie in a Vanilla Cheesecake
with Dulce de Leche Caramel Buttercream:
Simply mix a half cup Dulce de Leche caramel sauce into your favourite vanilla buttercream and top the piecaken with dollups of caramel sauce and you have the perfect Fall piecaken!
This one is a regular apple pie (with a pie crust on top), but the recipe is pretty much the same for my Apple Crumble-top Piecaken here:
