Pumpkin Cheesecake Dessert

This recipe is from central Ohio, which is the heart of pumpkin country, so it definitely represents our area! I got the basic recipe from a niece and made a few changes. Now it's one of my family's year-round favorite desserts!

    I have been making this for 25+ years - recipe is in the Great American Brand Name Cookbook - I use pecans because so many people I know are allergic to walnuts. I have also made this on a jelly roll pan to make more servings. Great recipe.
