I developed this recipe out of my love for cheesecake and my family's love for pumpkin pie. I made it for Thanksgiving and every morsel was devoured. My family wished I had made two! —Andrea Quiroz, Chicago, Illinois

"I made this cheesecake once before and it was perfect. It took 60 minutes to cook and it really was a perfect cheesecake. I made it again today and after 70 minutes it was still very jiggly. I took it out and waited a few minutes and then put it back in the oven with the oven off yet warm.. I have to say I think I know what the problem is. This time I used Libbeys pumpkin.The last time I used a different organic brand and it was not watery. I happen to notice that this pumpkin today was a tad bit loose...This is the reason I think."

"I have made cheesecakes similar to this pumpkin one and found that adding three tablespoons flour to th raw batter helps to set the cake. Does not change the flavor at all."

"Made this recipe for Thanksgiving. After reading the reviews I was worried about baking it long enough. After 75 minutes, when I tapped the cake, it still jiggled more than an inch in diameter in the center. I took it out anyway and hoped that it would set in the fridge. When I served it, the very center was still not set but the rest of the cake was delish!!! The family thought it was a smashing success.... Has a wonderful creamy, pumpkin flavor. Perfect blend between cheesecake and pumpkin pie."

"Very good flavor and texture,although it took a lot longer time in the oven than the recipe states. I had to check and recheck it got to be very irritating. I have made several cheese cakes before and never had the trouble baking like I did with this one. Very delicious!"

"I made this for a Halloween costume party. It was absolutely delicious. I used a spray decorator with a stencil to decorate the top. It was wonderful !"
