I scaled the recipe to 12 servings and increased the pumpkin puree and spices a little. I baked this in a 9-inch springform pan with a homemade crust. I used a water bath and added white chocolate curls to the top after it cooled a bit. It looked and tasted great! Everyone gave rave reviews and couldn't beieve it was homemade. For my crust: Combine 1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs, 1/3 cup confectioners sugar, and 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon in a bowl. Pour in 1/4 cup melted butter and mix well. Press into bottom of springform pan and bake for 10 minutes at 350 before adding filling to pan. - 23 Jan 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
this is a very pretty & delicious cheesecake! i added 1/2 c. of finely chopped pecans to my graham cracker crust & used a 9" springform pan (done in 40 minutes). i also liked how this cheesecake was less caloric then many of the other recipes offered here. many thanks jamie! - 04 Nov 2005 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I simply can't rave enough about this recipe. This was the first time I've ever made a cake/pie, and it turned out BEAUTIFUL and was absolutely delicious. When it was cut, the layers came out so well that everyone thought I had spent forever baking, but it only took me about 10 minutes to make. And did I mention that it was delicious?? Definitely try this recipe - everyone will love it. - 05 Dec 2002 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
