I don't love pumpkin pie, but I know it is a staple at Thanksgiving and I love cheesecake so I went for the pumpkin cheesecake instead this year. I'm so glad I did because it was delicious! It was my first time making cheesecake in a spring form pan and it turned out pretty good. Serve this with a dollop of fresh whipped cream and it's heaven!
This recipe come from Paula Deen on the food network. For simplicity's sake I will just give you the link to the recipe. I used 1 tsp. pumpkin pie spice in place of the cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves because I didn't have nutmeg or cloves and I substituted a ginger snap crust for the graham cracker crust, but I'm sure graham crackers would be tasty as well!
