Didn't turn out well. Found this same recipe on another website after I had already made it. The correct way to make this is to pour the 1 cup of cream cheese filling into the bottom of the crust and mix the remaining cream cheese mixture with the pumpkin. The recipe listed here states to mix the 1 cup of cream cheese mixture with the pumpkin mixture. I didn't have enough pumpkin mixture to cover the first layer entirely. Very disappointed. It was like a cheesecake with a small amount of pumpkin. Instead, had I used the majority of the cheesecake filling to mix with the pumpkin it would have been delicious just like I have eaten before.

Doesn't get any easier or any better than this! I have made regular pumpkin cheesecakes before but the layer in this makes it so much prettier!! I accidentally bought canned pumpkin pie mix, instead of just regular pumpkin so only added a little bit of the spices in. The layers turned out so beautifully. I think next time I might do 3 layers, two pumpkin and one white. The texture of the cheesecake is perfect too, delicious. I doubled the recipe and made two, I did bake it for 10 extra minutes.

Oh.... how we loved this! I'm so glad I chose this recipe for or Thanksgiving desert. It was so simple to make and the perfect way to end our meal. We love lots of flavor and spice, so I doubled the cinnamon, and adjusted the other spices by about a quarter and used allspice instead of cloves. Thanks for sharing this wonderful recipe. I'll be making it again.

I LOVE this recipe! I had made a similar pie for Thanksgiving last year, and my brother loved it so much that he wanted one for his Christmas present! I couldn't find the recipe for the box mix from the previous one, so I found this recipe, which tastes the exact same. So good!! I made 3 for Christmas. Making at least 4 this year.

personally i prefer more cheesecake than pumpkin so this recipe was a winner for me! so much so that it is going with me right into the christmas season. i added a cranberry rasberry sauce for color. it was a big hit for the three thanksgiving meals i attended! supereasy, but still impressive. would love to get this into a springform pan and get thicker layers.

We thought this was great. Just what I like in a dessert, easy and delicious. I used about 1 teaspoon of pumpkin pie spice instead of the spices mentioned. I might not use that much if my spice was fresh, but, mine had been in the cabinet since last Thanksgiving. (I know I should throw it out)

I did not like this at all. I couldn't decide if it tasted like a bad pumpkin pie or a very icky cheesecake. I just don't think that the flavors work together for me.
