Pumpkin Cheesecake (Double-Layer)
Though it is prettier to have the layer with the pumpkin puree on top, this layer is heavier than the plain cheesecake layer, so the layers will blend less if the pumpkin puree layer is on the bottom.
You may also dry bake: Bake in preheated oven for 45 minutes. Turn your oven off and leave the cheesecake inside the turned off oven for another hour. Cool at room temperature with a plate or baking sheet inverted over the cheesecake to slow the cooling. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours.
