"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."

2 (8 ounce) packages
1 (15 ounce) can
1 1/4 teaspoons
prepared 8 inch pastry shells
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!
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.
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!
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!!
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!
Great recipe. The flavor and consistency were awesome, I will make this one again. Next time I will use two 6" pie crusts instead however, there is not enough filling for two 8". Thank you.
I used a gramcracker crust,and top it with the french vanila cool whip.
You would never guess something so good could be so easy to make
I made this recipe for Thanksgiving and it came out great. It tasted very much like Pumpkin Pie, but with a lighter flavor. Everyone thought it was delish.
