Baked Pumpkin Cheesecake

    1 hour 10 minutes

    I'm glad my mother gave me this recipe. I think it's better than straight pumpkin pie, because it doesn't have a really strong pumpkin taste. Use butternut or other sweet pumpkin and make sure the pumpkin is well drained before pureeing.

    Something else. I didn't have a pastry shell so I made my own by mixing 125g melted butter with 180g of crushed plain sweet biscuits and pressing it into the bottom and 3cm up the sides of the tin (you may need to add more butter or biscuit to get a consistency that holds together well) Then I popped it in the fridge for 10mins before adding the pumpkin mixture. Worked well and was really tasty.  -  04 Aug 2010


    I had never heard of pumpkin cheesecake before, but thought I'd give it a go.. It's really tasty! Especially with a bit of ice cream. I halved the recipe and only made one cake, it worked well. My hubby was impressed so I'm happy. Thanks for the recipe!  -  04 Aug 2010
