Delicious cheesecake! Nice flavor, spices, and texture. However, the crust didn't do it for me. I typically LOVE nuts, but maybe the crust was too thick, or an odd texture, or an overwhelming flavor? Or maybe I just like the sweeter graham cracker or chocolate crusts in general. I just glanced at other Pumpkin Cheesecakes with pecan crusts, and they almost exclusively use a mix of pecans and graham crackers. Interesting. I'll switch up the crust next time.
It produces the best cheesecake that I have ever had combining two of my favorite foods: cheesecake and pumpkin pie. Kudos to SaffronMeSilly!
