    Michele7's Note:

    From I don't know where I got this pumpkin cheesecake recipe. I have made this cheesecake around Thanksgiving, when the pumpkin spices are calling! It is the same as Todd Wilbur's Top Secret recipe.

    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
    2. 2
      Make the crust by combining the graham cracker crumbs with the melted butter and 1 T sugar in a medium bowl.
    3. 3
      Stir well enough to coat all of the crumbs with the butter, but not so much as to turn the mixture into paste.
    4. 4
      Keep it crumbly.
    5. 5
      Put foil partway up the outside part of an 8-inch springform pan.
    6. 6
      Press the crumbs onto the bottom and about two-thirds of the way up the sides of the springform pan.
    7. 7
      You don't want the crust to form all of the way up the back of each slice of cheesecake.
    8. 8
      Bake the crust for 5 minutes, then set aside until you are ready to fill it.
    9. 9
      In a large mixing bowl combine the cream cheese, 1 C sugar, and vanilla.
    10. 10
      Mix with an electric mixer until smooth.
    11. 11
      Add the pumpkin, eggs, cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice and continue beating until smooth and creamy.
    12. 12
      Pour the filling into the pan.
    13. 13
      Bake for 60-70 minutes.
    14. 14
      The top will turn a bit darker at this point.
    15. 15
      Remove from the oven and allow the cheesecake to cool.
    16. 16
      When the cheesecake has come to room temperature, put it into the refrigerator.
    17. 17
      When the cheesecake has chilled, remove the pan sides and cut the cake into 8 equal pieces.
    18. 18
      Serve with a generous portion of whipped cream on top.

      I worked at a Cheesecake Factory in Kansas and this IS the recipe but they put in 1 tsp instead of 1/2 tsp of cinnamon. They also make the crust and put it into the pan and chill it overnight. This is my favorite cheesecake recipe they have, followed by oreo cheesecake...which you can find here on recipezaar as well. Hope this helps! ~Sean in Seattle

      This is a delicious recipe, and the ingredients are delicious, but the way you bake it is KEY. I've made it three times, and it's amazing how one recipe can come out SO many different ways. The best one came out by baking it in a water bath. Wrap it in foil as the recipe calls for, and then put it in a large baking pan with water about halfway up. Hope everyone enjoys it as much as I did!

      Made this 2 years ago and this has become a "if you don't bring...don't come" cheesecake! It is always requested by the family especially the men of the group. Going to make it tomorrow night for Thanksgiving on Thursday! You won't be disappointed.
