I'm glad my mum gave me this recipe. It is gorgeously spiced and I find it isn't as touchy as your typical cheesecake.
You can find tinned 100% pumpkin puree at Waitrose, via Ocado or in specialty shops. You can also make your own with this recipe.

Used different ingredients. Instead of a pastry base, I used crushed ginger biscuits and melted butter. - 17 Oct 2010
So yummy i also used the ginger cookies as a base! - 15 Oct 2011
This was pretty good, although I did make quite a few changes. I used graham cracker crust. Added 1/2 cup sugar with 1/2 cup brown sugar, let out the ginger and added 1 1/4 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice, 1 teaspoon vanilla, 1 tablespoon flour and baked in a spring form pan like a regular cheesecake. I think next time I will try adding an additional package of cream cheese and a little more pumpkin pie spice just to get a little more cheese flavor. Thanks for the idea! - 28 Nov 2003 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
