My all time favorite pumpkin dessert. This is from the November 1998 issue of Cooking Light Magazine.

Thank you for posting this, Emily. I made this cheesecake right after Cooking Light published it and, although I'd never made it since until this year, I'd also not forgotten how good it was! I made it in a pre-made graham cracker crust from the grocery store, which was too small, so I cooked the extra separately. That also made it next to impossible to swirl, so it wound up more like cheesecake with a pumpkin pie topping. Either way, it is light and fabulous. Yum!
