Mondays Menu: Double Layer Pumpkin Cheesecake

I have been searching the web for some different desserts to make for Thanksgiving next week. I love pumpkin pie just as much as the next person, but this year I want to mix it up a little bit. This pie is now officially part of our Thanksgiving menu.

Double Layer Pumpkin Cheesecake

  1.  Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
  2. In a large bowl, combine cream cheese, sugar and vanilla. Beat until smooth. Blend in eggs one at a time. Remove 1 cup of batter and spread into bottom of crust; set aside.

    The only cheesecake I have ever had is Cherry Cheesecake. This cheesecake looks so good and sounds like it is really easy to make. I’m definitely going to try it.

    I can honestly never say I’ve eaten (or seen) pumpkin cheesecake before. That being said, it’s also true that I’ve never had a ANY cheesecake I didn’t like! And this is a nice change from the usual pumpkin pie. SO good-looking! Pinned and worshipped, LOL!
