Posted for safekeeping. This is from America's Test Kitchen, and according to my co-worker it's not only the best pumpkin cheesecake recipe he's ever had, but also the best cheesecake period. "Depending on the oven and the temperature of the ingredients, the cheesecake may bake about 15 minutes faster or slower than the instructions indicate; it is therefore best to check the cake 1 1/4 hours into baking. Although the cheesecake can be make up to three days in advance, the crust will begin to lose its crispness after only one day. To make slicing the cheesecake easy and neat, use a knife with a narrow blade, such as a carving knife; between cuts, dip the blade into a pitcher of hot water and wipe it clean with paper towels. The cheesecake is good on it's own, bu the Brown Sugar and Bourbon Cream is a grand addition" Also want to note, don't let the number of steps scare you off, most of them indicate technique, not actual extra steps as is the way of America's Test Kitchen.
