This is an easy pumpkin cheesecake. Try it, or my pumpkin cheesecake with gingersnaps and walnuts recipe, as a nice alternative to regular pumpkin pie. Neither will kill your craving for pumpkin pie this holiday season, but they might create a new craving for you! This is adapted from a Paula Deen recipe. Thanks Paula!

    If you're looking for a light, airy cheesecake, this isn't for you. But if you're in the mood for a creamy, rich cheesecake with a wonderful Autumn twist, you're going to love this!
    I've cooked/tasted this recipe!

        Pumpkin dessert is perfect for Thanksgiving. I love the idea of a creamy rich choice.
