    Sounds WONDERFUL. I have a plain cheesecake recipe I adore, but no pumpkin "pie" alternatives I can eat anymore. May have just found one. Plan to adapt Gluten Free - Pamelas gluten-free ginger snaps are amazing, and I will try upping eggs to avoid flour (otherwise will use Pamelas). Already use McCormick spices, and both cinnamon and ginger carry health benefits so I add where I can. THANKS!

    I made this cheesecake a few years ago. I love it and it was so easy to make. This was my first time making a cheesecake and the results were surprisingly good.

    PLEASE, don't rate recipes you haven't made! (I added 5 stars just to balance lesser stars from those who rated but haven't even tried the recipe.)
