I'm glad my mother gave me this recipe. I think it's better than regular pumpkin pie, because it doesn't have a really strong pumpkin taste.

This was pretty good although I did make quite a few changes. I used graham cracker crust. Added 1/2 cup sugar with 1/2 cup brown sugar let out the ginger and added 1 1/4 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice 1 teaspoon vanilla 1 tablespoon flour and baked in a spring form pan like a regular cheesecake. I think next time I will try adding an additional package of cream cheese and a little more pumpkin pie spice just to get a little more cheese flavor. Thanks for the idea! Read More

I found this cheesecake to be a little bland compared to the other pumpkin cheesecake recipes I have tried (see the Eagle Brand link and the maple pumpkin cheesecake). It was a good cake just not the best. Read More

Delicous!! Better than plain old Pumpkin Pie! The only thing I did different was drizzled caramel syrup over it before I served it and also topped it with whip cream and crushed ginger cookies! YUMMY!!! Even my kids loved it! Thanks for a great recipe! Read More

I made some changes to this recipe to make it suitable for my husband who is diabetic. I used splenda and added just a touch of vanilla extract. I also baked it in a single deep dish crust instead of 2 regular. It was very good even our non-diabetic friends enjoyed it. It was very fluffy and light and had a nice smooth consistency. We added a dollop of sugar free cool whip and a few chopped pecans before serving. I will definitely make this recipe again. Read More

Fabulous! I liked it better than regular pumpkin pie. I used low fat cream cheese too! My family seemed disappointed when they heard there was no regular pumpkin pie but after tasting it they were very impressed!! Read More

This is excellent. I use 1/3 less fat cream cheese add 1/4 tsp. ground cloves 3 1/2 Tbsp. flour & 4 Tbsp. milk. Adding flour gives the cheesecake structure. Since I prefer my cheesecake a little firmer this works well and for those with the same preference you may want to try this. I served this dessert for Easter and it went over very well with many compliments received. Good post! Read More

I made this recipe for thanksgiving and it was an instant new family favorite. The recipe was simple and the cheesecake turned out beautifully with amazing flavor. I made it with a gingersnap crust from another allrecipes.com recipe: 3/4 c snaps 1/2 c ground pecans 2T sugar 2T brn sugar 1/4 c melted butter press into pan chill 5 min bake 10 min. I also topped it with 16 oz sour cream mixed with 1/3 cup sugar 1 tsp vanilla and baked it an additional 10 minutes at the suggestion of another allrecipes.com member. WONDERFUL RECIPE! Read More

Very good. I used this recipe for cupcakes instead of pie and turned out great. Added a little more spices and sugar. Put in cupcake liners with vanilla wafers for crust and baked for 20 min at 325. Topped with whipped cream and a sprinkle of cinnamon and they were great little treats. Read More
