Maple Pumpkin Cheesecake
July 04, 2018
"I think I got this from my local grocery store. It was a big hit with my family when I made it, and the pecan topping and glaze makes it pretty enough to be served at a fancy affair. I previously posted it on another recipe site, and this was the review I got: "I made this for my office's Thanksgiving potluck and it was the hit of the party! So many people came over to me and just RAVED about it! The only change I made was using gingersnap crumbs instead of graham cracker crumbs. The cake cooked perfectly at 300, and although it developed a crack (I cooled it down too fast) the rich caramel pecan topping covered it nicely. Next time (and there will be a next time!) I'll take a photo - this cheesecake turns out absolutely gorgeous and looks like it came from a professional bakery. Thanks so much for posting!""
