8 whole Oreos, finely ground in food processor
1 1/2 Tablespoons melted butter
8 oz soft cream cheese
1/2 Cup granulated sugar
1/2 Cup pumpkin puree
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

Homemade caramel sauce-click here for recipe

12 pumpkin Hershey Kisses-I found mine in Target, unwrapped
1.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Combine ground Oreos and melted butter in a bowl.  Spoon into  12 mini cheesecake cups or you could probably use a muffin tin.  I found my pumpkin cheesecake pan at Williams Sonoma but have been told they don't carry it any more.  Spray the pan with Pam and press crumbs into the bottom with a rounded handle.  Bake for 10 minutes then remove from oven.
2.  Meanwhile, beat cream cheese,  sugar and pumpkin smooth.  Add egg, vanilla & cinnamon.  Use a small ice cream scoop to evenly dish out the cream cheese mix into the cups.  Spoon about a teaspoon of your homemade caramel onto the tops of each cup and swirl with a knife to marble.  Bake 23-25 minutes.  Let cool completely and chill.
3.  Remove cheesecakes from pan and top each with a spoonful of caramel and a pumpkin Hershey Kiss.  Keep chilled.
