Pumpkin Cheesecake (Double-Layer)
I have finally perfected this recipe! After two years of searching for the best pumpkin cheesecake recipe, with cracks and not-so-tasty outcomes, I ended up combining multiple recipes, resulting in this. Top cheesecake with whipped cream if desired. Enjoy!
Recipe Summary test
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.
