​This Keto Pumpkin Layer Cheesecake is an Instant Pot recipe, one that is also paleo compliant. The recipe is a little less sweet than many other cheesecake recipes, but that’s entirely a good thing. Let’s face it, cheesecakes are often excessively sweet. Toning down that sweetness allows the various flavors to be more prominent, making a more interesting dessert overall.

                                               This Keto Roast Pumpkin and Feta Tart would be a fantastic dish to serve a crowd.

It’s one that might find yourself making time and time again.

Another interesting part is that pumpkin is just one of the flavors in the recipe. It’s an important flavor, but there are others present as well. This makes a nice chance from recipes where pumpkin dominates all other flavors.

The pies would also be a nice little treat to serve to guests.
