    A wonderful alternative to pumpkin pie. It tastes like the lightest pumpkin pie ever!!! I found the recipe in the Houston Chronicle. I'm not much on pumpkin pie but this is the best!

      This is the most amazing recipe and easy to prepare. I broke my ginger snaps in half and ground them in a mini food processor. Followed the recipe exactly as written. My cheesecake took closer to the 50 minutes to bake. Next day, tasted even better than the first day!! This one is a keeper!
