Carrot Cake Cheesecake
Reviewer Yoly offers this suggestion to achieve five-star results: "I make a very similar cake except for the frosting. I use a sour cream, sugar and vanilla topping, which for me works better than the cream cheese frosting this recipe calls for," she says.

With ladyfinger cookies, coffee liqueur, and semi-sweet chocolate, this recipe weds the flavors of tiramisu with thick New York cheesecake.
Pumpkin Cheesecake in a Gingersnap Crust
"This cheesecake has been our dessert for the past three Thanksgiving dinners! Like others, I also use ground pecans in place of the hazelnuts, but I also find that a spicy gingersnap makes for a better crust." —REDWINECHICK
An entire jar of Nutella goes into this cheesecake, so you know it's decadent.
