Thanksgiving Dessert Alternative

This cheesecake is fabulous! The slight crunch of the pecans with the whipped cream and the pumpkin flavor is wonderful. I highly recommend this for those who are tired of the same old pumpkin pie.

Pumpkin Praline Cheesecake

Mmmm-good that is what everyone at the neighborhood get-together said about this delicious cheesecake. Fall is a good time to make it as everyone is anxious for that pumpkin taste.

I made this cheesecake for Christmas and it was wonderful. Everyone enjoyed it.

Not as hard as it looks

This is by far the best cheesecake I ever ate, especially since I don't like cheesecake. It got an intermediate difficulty rating, but it really wasn't that hard. Presentation makes it look more professional but the simplicity makes it an easy alternative for a sudden dinner party treat. The best part was that I bought the pumpkin pie mix on accident and went to the website for a recipe so I didn't waste it.

Easily Modified for Gluten Free Diets

My husband is gluten free, so I made the crust with gluten free vanilla graham cookies, with a few gluten free cinnamon cookies thrown in. Husband said the cinnamon cookies were a great touch. Even those who aren't on a gluten free diet thought this was a HIT at Thanksgiving! I also used a 9X13 pan instead of the springform and it came out just fine.
