I love the pumpkin cheesecake from Cheesecake Factory, but I have to tell ya that Paula Deen’s pumpkin cheesecake recipe is nearly as good as Cheesecake Factory’s. You can get the recipe here. After making one over the weekend, I made one more today for another get-together. The best part is that the entire cake cost me just as much to make as buying one slice of cheesecake from Cheesecake Factory, since I had most of the ingredients on hand. Once you’ve tried this recipe, you’ll never want pumpkin pie again. You’ll find pumpkin cheesecake to be a must-have for all your Thanksgiving festivities.
