You're sure to draw compliments with this delectable homemade dessert from Lorraine Darocha. In Mountain City, Tennessee, she prepares it the day before by topping a from-scratch pecan crust with luscious layers of cream cheese and spiced pumpkin.
This is the ultimate pumpkin cheesecake. It has a unique gingersnap crust and rich, luscious swirls of cheesecake and pumpkin. If you want something extra special for the holidays, you have to try this recipe. —Sharon Skildum, Maple Grove, Minnesota
When I was young we produced several ingredients for this longtime favorite on the farm. We raised pumpkins in our large vegetable garden, and made homemade butter and lots of sour cream from our dairy herd.
