This was a fun and delicious alternative to pumpkin pie. I really liked the two layer aspect of it. I would not recommend using a store bought graham pie crust though - they are not usually good quality and will totally take away from the finished result. I needed a gluten free crust anyway, so chose to go with a home made almond crust which is basically ground whole almonds and butter. It was a fabulous complement to this wonderful cheesecake. Just a dollop of unsweetened real whipped cream is needed on top to keep it from being too rich overall. A tip for avoiding a cracked top on your cheesecake- use room temp cheese and eggs, and don't over beat while mixing. Also, when the cake is done, turn the oven off and leave the cake in with the door ajar, until the oven cools. You can also run a knife around the edge to loosen the cake from the sides of the pan. Then, refrigerate. Cheesecake is also best best made the day before serving.
