Double layer Pumpkin Cheesecake
Rate the Pumpkin Cheesecake
It's a perfect fall desert! This reciple is for making a pumpkin cheesecake in a ready to use graham cracker crust but if you want to make your own crust you can do that too and if you want to make it in a big cake pan just double the receipe. I also have found that if you don't have cloves and nutmeg you can substitue with pumpkin pie spice but I prefer the dash of cloves and nutmeg. If you use artificial vanilla it is still good but it is so much better (as are all recipies) with real vanilla extract. It's very delicious and making it with the divided layers makes it extra tasty.
Try it and enjoy! It's very flavorful
