We made two alterations to this recipe. First, we don't like gingersnaps, so we replaced the gingersnap cookies with crushed Newton's Fruit Thins in the Cranberry Citrus Oats flavor. (They are this new crispy cookie from the Fruit Newtons company and they are SO good in this recipe!!) Then, we wanted a touch of color in the topping, so we added a little bit of strawberry jam, (we used Smuckers), it made the topping look pretty and it added just a bit of flavor. Sounds like it would clash with the pumpkin, but it was amazingly good. With these changed, this was HANDS DOWN the best pumpkin cheesecake I have ever had. Better than than, it was one of the best CHHESECAKES I have ever had!!!
