I agree with the angel choir. Lovely recipe, big hit at the party.

I'm not sure how to rate this. Everyone seemed to like it well enough, but no one raved about it, and I, personally, did not care for it. I felt the combination of flavors kind of cancelled eachother out. Of course, I should tell you that I didn't exactly follow the directions. I added the rest of the can of pumpkin (about another 1/3 c.) and doubled the spices after tasting the batter and thinking it was fairly bland. In the end, it was a lovely, moist, dense, even pretty cheesecake...I'm just not sure it was my cup of tea!
