Chef's Notes

Cook's Note:; For a more tart pumpkin cheesecake, use pumpkin puree instead of pumpkin pie filling; For decoration and added flavor, sprinkle ground cinnamon atop the whipped cream; When it is in the process of mixing and setting, it is very sweet, but as it chills it begins to settle down, and the pumpkin flavor bleeds through.

Reviews

  1. Would have been better to mix the cream cheese and icing sugar together first before adding the pumpkin. Cream cheese didnt mix in well. I wont make again.
  2. I made it just like the recipe,but I added extra pumpkin spice,so the cream cheese wouldn't over take the pumpkin flavor. Also ,I read all the comments and I added a package sugar free cheesecake pudding to firm it up and 1/2 of 2%milk and it came out beautifully.!
  3. loved it. changed nothing.
  4. I made some adjustments based on personal taste what I had on hand and after reading the reviews. I made it twice for Thanksgiving get-together and they both turned out great and were a hit multiple request for recipe.

  7. This was delicious! I used pumpkin puree because that is what I had on hand. I added 1 tsp. cinnamon and 1/4 tsp. nutmeg to give it the pumpkin pie taste. I used one 8 oz. package of cream cheese. I saw no reason to add the extra 3/4 oz. I froze mine as well - Read more ...
  8. This did have great flavor. After reading Buckwheat Queens review I froze the pie which made it easier to slice still it barely held it's shape. Not quite sure what would happen if I didn't freeze it. I never knew that there was such a thing as a prepared shortbread pie crust however I will - Read more ...
  9. This is a dessert with very good flavor. It tastes like pumpkin pie meets cheesecake, however it doesn't seem to set properly. It wasn't too sweet which was nice. I used fresh whipped cream instead of "frozen whipped topping". I read the ingredients list of whipped toppings and they contain a lot of thickeners so - Read more ...
