This is a really yummy recipe. I have made pumpkin cheesecake before and decided to give this a try. Everyone that tried it really loved it. I am making it again to take to a church party.

These were a huge hit at a family gathering. I was intrigued by the unusual combination of sweet potato and dessert. I wasn't disappointed. Sinfully delicious!
