I totally made up the name of this dessert. I was going to just call it “Pumpkin Cheesecake,” because that’s pretty much what it is. But it’s also Caramel Pumpkin Cheesecake, for important reasons you’ll understand shortly. Then again, it contains gingersnaps—hence the inclusion of “Gingersnap” in the name. So “Caramel Pumpkin Gingersnap Cheesecake” it is. But wait … there are also pecans in it, too.
Tender sheets of pastry interspersed with creamy filling, and topped with a sweet glaze with just a hint of chocolate. Napoleons might very well be the stuff from which dreams are made. Anyone can make bakery-worthy Napoleons in their own kitchen. And if it is a “wow” reaction you crave when presenting your baked goods to the general public, trust me, these things do more than “wow.”
