Recipe Comments & Reviews

This has been one of my go-to holiday recipes for years. It looks fancy but is so easy to put together, and it's always a hit with my guests.
I have to admit, I am a pumpkin freak, I can't wait for this time of year to buy pumpkin ice cream even, BUT this is to die for ! Pumpkin -- cheesecake - my two favorites rolled into one, who could ask for more? Easy to make too!
