Glad you all like the recipe. This is one I created back in the late 90's for Top Secret Restaurant Recipes. That's still the best seller of all the TSR books and I'm happy you get to try a few of the original clone recipes from that book and all the others here at RecipeZaar. Enjoy! --Todd Wilbur, Top Secret Recipes

This is simply fabulous! I've made this several times for holiday dinners and everyone is impressed every single time. I can't wait to make it again this year!

This was a cinch to make, and I get nervous making things like cheesecake. The first time I made it, perfection: no cracks, nothing. The second time I made it I was all cavalier about it and the top cracked! (That time was at a high elevation so I'm hoping it was a one time problem). No matter, it still tasted divine.

Great cheesecake! I crushed my own graham crackers and found that 1 wrapped package is equal to 1 1/2 cups crumbs. I also used 1 whole teaspoon cinnamon.

Loved it. I also whipped up some pumpkin whip cream (can be found on recipezaar as well) to top it off.

Every one loved this cheesecake, not as heavy as the norm. I personally thought it tasted very much like a pumpkin pie, good, but I was looking for more cheese cake flavor. I did use fresh pumpkin so maybe that made a differnce. DO NOT skimp on the foil around the pan. I didn't have it far enough up the sides of the pan and the juice made a big mess in my oven.

I was not fond of this cheesecake and did not think it tasted anything like the Cheesecake Factory. I followed the instructions exactly. I am a pretty good baker so it was not my first cheesecake. I will NOT make this again.

YUMM! What a pleasant change from pumpkin pie! This was a huge hit at Christmas dinner. I beat the eggs with a fork before adding to the mixture, as this helps with the consistency. I also doubled the cinnamon. This recipe deserves all 5 stars!

The flavors were really great! I don't think I beat my cream cheese enough because it was a little lumpy. I'll have to try this recipe again.
