Gluten Free Pumpkin Pie Cheesecake in a Jar

An adorable crustless pumpkin pie cheesecake in a jar that only takes minutes to prepare. 
I love pumpkin pie. Absolutely love. But even in my gluten eating days, I would just scrape the filling off the crust. Now that I’m gluten free, I just make it crustless. I’ve tried making it in a baking dish, but there’s something unappealing about scooping filling out of a dish and dumping it on a plate.
Now I bake it in jars. Everyone loves to eat things out of jars because they’re adorable. And seriously, guys, dessert should be the most adorable part of your meal. And if you have someone from the Anti-Adorable-Dessert-League at your table (though I don’t know why you would), you can always transfer the filling into fancy little dessert dishes. (Okay, still adorable).
This is probably one of the easiest holiday recipes that I make. I just throw everything into my blender, blend until smooth (smooth as a smoothie) and then pour the mixture straight into the jars. I use 8oz jars and fill them about half way. This recipe makes almost a dozen.
I get my jars at Walmart. They’re not very expensive and when they’re not in use for baking, they double as drinking glasses. (More adorableness)
You can serve these right out of the oven, but I prefer them after they’ve cooled to room temperature. They’re firmer and more flavorful.
