Pumpkin Cheesecake

I did it again….I know I’m not suppose to buy cookbooks but I love them like a book.  I take them to bed and read them and then sometimes…I even make good things from them.  In my defense, I was at the thrift store and the book was only $1.50 and remember me saying that Hubby collects fireman related things…well this is from a fire department….that makes it all okay, right?

That’s what I told myself.

…and I did follow through.  See my pumpkin cheesecake?

Hubby adores cheesecake.  I have yet to find anything that he doesn’t like that contains sugar though.  I cheated and bought a pre-made graham cracker crust…I admit, I can’t do it all!

The piece broke when I scooped it out to take the picture.  I thought to take another one out so it looked all nice and perfect for the picture and then thought, nope.  I’m not perfect and I’m not going to pretend to be.

The cheesecake was wonderful!

Here’s the recipe.

It’s VERY-VERY easy.  The 35-40 minutes is not correct though.  I think mine was in about 50 minutes.  Take a knife and check it to know when it’s done.

I’ll be making this one again.  A bit ago I shared a pumpkin bar recipe.  It only used 1 cup of pumpkin….Someone asked if you could use the whole can as they didn’t want to waste the pumpkin.  Well now you don’t have to.  Make this cheesecake too!

    I say no need to justify buying what makes you (or me) happy! lol.

    At $1.50 that’s cheap enough entertainment…and useful too! Yummo, looks delicious!

    I handed my 8 yr. old granddaughter a church cookbook yesterday and she told me she only likes cookbooks with pictures! So I gave her a different one. Love to see the pictures of what your dishes look like when you make them. I just printed off your rhubarb dessert from the other day. I need to make it soon. Have some rhubarb in the freezer just waiting.

    Since the recipe says to use a pre-made crust — you are just following the directions!
    It looks good – and only uses 2 packages of cream cheese. Economical!
