I've made this twice now and it has been excellent both times! The first time, I made it as directed and it came out really creamy, and did not hold its shape while on the plate. The second time, I made the following adjustments: I used vanilla bean paste for the extract, added 1/2 tsp. ground nutmeg and I cooked it in the water bath at 300 degrees for 1 hour and at 200 degrees for 1/2 hour. Turned the oven off, opened the oven door and let the cheesecake stay in there for another 1/2 hour. Came out much better the second time around! Great recipe, will be using again and again!

This was AWESOME!! I am following a low carb diabetic diet, and this hit the spot. next time I may add a little more splenda. I added extra cinnamon and used pumpkin pie spice. I used a 9 inch spring form pan, and let the cake cool in the oven 1 hour then on the counter 1 hour. I served it after it was chilled for 6 hours. I will make this again and again!!

I made this for Thanksgiving and to say it was a huge hit would be an understatement. Having been recently diagnosed as pre-diabetic I had to create a healthier holiday menu. My 10 year old loved it and had 2 pieces. I also altered the baking times cooking it at 300 for an hour and at 200 for an additional hour. I left it in the oven with the door cracked for approximately 3 hours and it was cooked perfectly. No cracks and held its shape when served.

This was my first try at baking a cheesecake, and it turned out wonderfully! I used a springform pan and added a bit more of each spice and about 2TBS of brown sugar splenda mix. It looked as good as it tasted and was a delicious treat for our low carb Thanksgiving. Thanks for posting the recipe!

Very easy and good. I did make a thin graham crust sweetened with splenda and added chopped pecans. I also added a pinch of cloves and a little nutmeg. Also, I used reduced fat cream cheese. Yummy and a little less guilt! Thanks.

My family chose this low-carb pumpkin cheesecake over 8 other Shari's Restaurant pies we purchased for Thanksgiving. This was the only pie that was gone after dessert! A+

I added a low carb crust from another recipe and my diabetic husband loved it! Low carb crust for cheesecake: 1 1/2 cups almond meal 1/2 tsp each cinnamon and ginger 1/4 cup melted butter 1/4 cup Splenda Mix and press on bottom of lined pan (springform works best). Bake at 375 for 10 min. Prepare cheesecake as directed, but no need to invert when ready to serve.

I liked this cheesecake okay, but it tasted rather bland to me without enough sugar. I think I liked the batter better the the cake itself.
