This recipe is very good!...for the crust, I process the flour and brown sugar for about 15 seconds in a food processor, then add in very cold butter, process with a couple of on and off turns, then just mix in the pecans by hand, I find that the crust bakes out to a lighter texture if done by this method. You also might want to increase the sugar and cinnamon slightly in the filling. This is a delicious pumpkin recipe that I have made many times in the Fall season. thanks for sharing KyJo!...Kittencal:)

What a great recipe! I have made these several times and have never been disappointed. The texture does vary according to the brand of pumpkin used and I prefer Libby's if I can find it. Not too sweet - just perfect!

I made these as dessert for Thanksgiving and they were wonderful! I brought some to my SIL and she loved them too! Nice and easy.

These were good and easy to make but not quite what I expected. I used pumpkin pie spice instead of all spice and only used 1/4 Splenda brown sugar blend. I do agree with another reviewer that the crust is a bit overpowering and might make it next time without a crust. I used all the crust on the bottom and didn't sprinkle any on the top. I cooked my crust for ten minutes and then thirty minutes with the topping. Next time I would cut back on the sugar in the filling too as I thought it was a bit sweet.

My stepdaughter calls this pumpkin junk. Whatever these are, they are not cheesecake. We like them, but we were looking for more of a cheesecake texture and flavor. Will attempt to fix this and post the results here.

There didnt seem to be enough spice in these so once i had everything mixed together i added pumpkin pie spice, ginger, cloves, nutmeg and some more cinnamon. They turned out delicious!! Tasted just like pumpkin pie! I topped them with a buttermilk frosting...sooooo good!!

These were boring. They turned out like bland pumpking pie. I followed the recipe exactly and they just didnt do it for me. Sorry.

Made these for a luncheon of 114 women. Went over like gang-busters! Added a bit of caramel sauce to gild the lily. Love, love, LOVE these!
