3.
Soak the gelatine sheets in cold water. When hydrated, squeeze out excess water and dissolve in one tbsp. of boiling water.

Warm the cream cheese mixture a bit before adding the gelatine to it or lumps will appear.

Note

You must add the caramel sauce right before serving them, otherwise, the cheesecake will soak up the liquid.

I used homemade pumpkin pure because we cannot get storebought in Spain. You can see how I made it here.

This is the salted caramel sauce I used. It's quick, easy and amazing!

These are best served a bit frozen, because they taste like pumpkin ice-cream yum!
