I loved this recipe and was lucky to have the last sliver of it at my Christmas party. I did do a couple of things differently though. Instead of 3 eggs I used 2 eggs and 3 egg yolks. I found that the pumpkin dominates the flavor so cutting down a little on the pumpkin and adding the maple syrup is recommended. I also added 1 tablespoon of cornstarch to the mix so as insurance to prevent cracking. For the crust I found gingerbread graham crackers so I used those instead of regular graham crackers since I thought that would be a good flavor match. When I baked it I baked it in a pre-heated water bath and baked it for 1 hour at 250F. After one hour I turned off the oven, opened the door for 1 minute and then closed the door and let the cheesecake sit in the oven for another hour before putting it into the fridge for 6 hours. I learned these techniques from watching Alton Brown's Good Eats program on the Food Network.
