Perfect Pumpkin Cheesecake

Fall is one of my favorite times of the year. It brings the best holidays – my favorite being Christmas – and it brings pumpkin flavored treats. Pumpkin, pumpkin everywhere. Just how I like it.

I don’t really even go to Starbucks much during the year – I hate to drink my calories. But once the pumpkin spice latte is available, I’m there! And I have to keep going back to get the eggnog and gingerbread lattes too. They are all so good! The fabulous flavors of fall!

So today I share with you my first pumpkin treat of the year. You can certainly expect more, but today is all about the cheesecake! Oh, how I love this creamy pumpkin cheesecake.

This has actually become a staple at Thanksgiving for me. After a fabulous meal with a taste of everything, I grab my dessert platter. A slice of pumpkin pie and a slice of pumpkin cheesecake. Given that this is the only time of year for pumpkin, I try to squeeze in as much as I can.

And for those that don’t like pumpkin pie (gasp!) this is a great pumpkiny alternative. I hope you like it!

      Hmm, there are a few things that can cause cracking. The most common would be the way the cheesecake cools. You want to be sure to cool the cheesecake slowly before putting it in the fridge. Another cause could be too much air in the batter. Try making sure to beat the ingredients together on low speed.

        Would it hurt to spray the pan, wrap in aluminum foil and place in a water bath to prevent cracking?
