Anyone have a recipe for Pumpkin Cheesecake ?
Try epicurious site; it should have a Gourmet Mag recipe that is superb.
Two tips to make it better than most:
1) Use fresh spices (you can even buy the spices whole and grind them yourself to release their flavors.
2) Most importantly: don't use the rubbery Philadelphia cream cheese: use fresh that you can get in bulk from delis. I've forgotten the brand but it is readily available.
I've made the Bourbon Pumpkin Cheesecake on the Epi website. I didn't use bourbon but subbed vanilla. I'm also sure that if one was serving children, one could boil the bourbon a bit to get rid of the alcohol and then use in recipe.
It's an amazing cake. I've even made it using "lite" creamcheese and 2% yoghurt mixed with a bit of sour cream. Came out fine and still deelish.
