Don't let the length of this recipe scare you away. This is delicious. My family expects this cheesecake around the holidays. They get disappointed if I do not make this and start asking.

Confusing to the tastebuds but overall delicious. I love the prescence of the pumpkin flavors, but it really made me want pumpkin pie more than cheesecake. Just not for me, I guess. Good trial run ... I'd like some regular cheesecake next time. Thanks for the recipe.
