I found this recipe on kraft foods web sit and made it at Thanksgiving, and it was a big hit with every one. I did change the spices that kraft had to fit what I had on hand at home. The one I am posting is the one with my spices that I used in my cheese cake.

DH and I are both cheesecake lovers. We recently tried the pumpkin cheesecake at olive garden and I wanted to make my own b/c it was so good! This recipe was so simple. I also liked just using the pumpkin pie spice instead of spending a fortune buying all those other spices separately. It's a very rich cheesecake and very tasty. I did use a bit more pumpkin that called for, b/c I wanted it a bit more orange colored than it was. Turned out perfect!

This one is excellent! I added a little all spice and ginger to mine for some extra flavor. It also works well with a nilla wafor crust vs. the graham cracker crust.
