Made the recipe as is & it turned out great! Drizzled some carmel sauce on the top & served it chilled. Next time I might add some chopped pecans & chocolate chips to the top too! Yummy! Read More

I was so excited to see Kahlua recipes on the site. I made this for my office party. I did add in a bit more Kahlua. Everyone LOVED it. Will definitely make it for the holiday for my family. Read More

I made this exactly as is. It was probably one of the easiest cheesecakes I have made. I usually hold back a little on the liquor in recipes, but not this time and I was pleasantly surprised. My dad begged me to make another one and he hasn't even finished this one yet. Read More

I made this for a dinner party I was invited to and it was a hit. I will say the only thing different I added to the recipe was a dash of salt as well as 1/2 tsp of vanilla extract. I dressed the cake with a ganache and a dusting of the left over graham cracker crumbs. I am not much of a baker and this cheesecake came out perfect. Everyone enjoyed this cheesecake thank you for sharing this recipe. Read More

I just made this and it whipped together very easily! I didn't have a springform pan (it's on my Christmas list), so I just used a frozen pie crust I had in the freezer (don't judge me, lol). I didn't have any ginger so I just used pumpkin pie spice. I also used 1/4 of a cup of Kahlua instead of a half because I didn't want a strong liquor flavor, I just wanted a nod to it. I also put some chocolate chips and pecans on top of half of it, lol! It's a very good, adult, festive dessert!! And EASY!!! Read More

As much as I enjoy the typical pumpkin cheesecake, I was sure this one would be even more delicious. As some other reviewers mentioned it was more like pumpkin pie than cheesecake. I also found that the Kahlua did not complement the flavors as well as I expected. It was easy to make though and was still tasty. I will opt for plain pumpkin cheesecake next time though. Read More

This was good. More like a pumpkin pie than a cheese cake. Couldn't really taste the kahlua either. But, still not bad if you want something pumpkin and sweet. Read More

This was a very simple recipe to follow and it was quite delicious. I didn't care that mine cracked in the middle but when I tried to remove the spring form pan, it cracked all along the sides. Then I realized that I forget to spray the pan and sides with Pam, so it was completely my fault. Thanks so much for posting this recipe. I'll definitely make it again!! Yummy!! Read More
