I was asked to bring the pumpkin pie for dessert one Thanksgiving. I am so tired of plain old pumpkin pie every year so, I decided to find and make a pumpkin recipe that would wow everyone and replace pumpkin pie at least ONE Thanksgiving.
I took both, a pie and a Philadelphia Pumpkin Swirl Cheesecake.
Let me put it to you this way. I brought home an empty cheesecake platter and a pumpkin pie that didn't get touched and I've been asked to make the Philly Pumpkin Swirl Cheesecake every year since and to skip the pie! I now have to make two!!
I like this for 2 reasons. I love to make cheesecakes. And the other, I hate making pie crust!
This year, I was asked to bring it to the Christmas Celebration as well and that's what brought me here again to get the recipe!
If anyone has an egg nog cheesecake recipe they know to be as good as this one, I'd love to have it! Make one of each for Christmas and see how that goes over!
*First time I made this, I didn't have ginger snaps or pecans, so I made a regular graham cracker crust and added some cinnamon to it. Last year, I made it with the ginger snaps and pecans. We like it both ways, but, if you do the ginger snaps and pecans...when they say FINELY CHOPPED, it means FINELY CHOPPED. If the nuts are left too big they are too course for the recipe and take away from the recipe. IMO.
