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.
