    Chocolatl's Note:

    This is from the November, 1996 issue of Bon Appetit Magazine. We have it every Thanksgiving instead of pumpkin pie. You can use any kind of cookie crumbs you like for the crust; this year I used Keebler Cashew Shortbread Sandies and they were fabulous.

      What a perfect Pumpkin Cheesecake recipe Choco!
      It was an absolute HIT at the party, and will be made for our own personal treat this Holiday season!
      I used Pecan Sandies for the crust, what a tasty change from the everyday graham cracker crust! LOVED it!
      Reminded me of a creamy gingerbread good!
      Thank you for a great new tasty treat sensation!

      Yet another reminder of holidays past, I made this for a park-wide potluck & it was definitely a big hit! Pumpkin & pecans, a wonderful combo! I'll be keeping this recipe on hand to make again when the end-of-year holidays come around again! [Made & reviewed in Newest Zaar Tag]
