Pumpkin Cheesecake

I am sure you all are sick of pumpkin by now, especially after I have already posted a recipe for pumpkin cookies and pumpkin spice cupcakes. But, here's another one! This was by far my favorite pumpkin recipe-pumpkin cheesecake! It was so delicious and it was a huge hit at Thanksgiving. I've already been nominated to make this ever year, I might even make it again for Christmas. It was a thick, creamy, New York styled cheesecake with the perfect amount of pumpkin. The only thing I would change is to try making this using a "waterbath" to avoid the crack in the middle that comes out after baking it and chilling it. (PS: Um, does anyone really know what a waterbath is when it comes to baking? I kind of have no idea. Haha. I just heard that should be done to avoid cracking.) I used this recipe here!
PS: This was my first time to ever make a cheesecake! I was pleasantly surprised by how easy it was to make.

  3. DELICIOUS. I only tried pumpkin for the first time the other day after years of telling everyone I hated it. It is really tasty, haha. You must be such a good cook! Please come to Australia and make me a cheesecake.

  4. Crack or no crack, that is one tasty looking cheesecake. I also have no idea what a waterbath is... sorry!

  5. That looks so good :) All a "water bath" is you take a sheet pan (like you'd use to make a big cake) fill it with water then set the pie dish in it then put it in the oven to bake like normal. The water heats up to help cook the cheese cake evenly so when it goes to cool the sides and everything is around the same temperature so no cracking!

  9. Hmmmm...pumpkin cheesecake? That's something new! You're right--everyone has made pies and muffins and such (I made muffins, myself), so this was something nice to see! We actually use the same type of canned pumpkin. :) I always add a lot of additional spices, though; it always smells wonderful!

  12. Hello Chelsea :)

    I've been following your blog for almost a year and I've never commented anything, but I guess this was my time...
    You bake amazing and beautiful cakes, and I read that you were confused about what you were going to study on college... So, my question is, what are you studying? Are you still planning to open your own bakery? (Yes, I remeber this detail in particular)
    Well, I hope you're lucky in whatever you do :)

    A big kiss from a reader from Portugal,
    Beatriz.
