MY REVIEW

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!
