Canned pumpkin and pumpkin pie spice gives this cheesecake its autumnal appeal. Try the ol' toothpick-through-the-drizzle trick for the spider web effect.

The trick w/sour cream topping is it has 2 be REAL sour cream not the fat free stuff & you have 2 let it sit out for a bit before spreading & the cake cannot be hot, let it sit for about an hour. You can also add powdered sugar to the sour cream, but honestly it shouldn't be that bad if you are are putting the chocolate over it!
I was a little freaked out about doing a sour cream topping, so I opted for store-bought cream cheese icing. Everyone raved about how delicious it was!! This recipe is definitely a keeper!
I sometimes make regualar cheesecake with a sour cream topping but I added a Tbl of sugar to it and vanilla. It's good!
I agree with most of the reviewers...the sr cream topping is not that good. I used cream cheese frosting for the topping instead (let harden a little before trying to add drizzle...makes it stick better). The chocolate crust and choc from the drizzle is a good mix. I added some plastic spiders (like those small plastic spider rings that kids wear) on top for some cute decor. The taste is great and everyone always loves this dish!
I also used stencils I bought from Michaels craft store to decorate the top.
ok. i didnt like the sourcream topping. instead i use buttercream fosting and added pumpkin spice and beated it together tell it tasted good.
I omitted the topping portion of this recipe. The recipe was quick and easy but I thought the cheesecake was bland. Next time I would add more pumpkin and more spices. I prefer whipped cream topping as opposed to the sour cream topping.
Major changes to make this recipe a 4 star!Fist thing: I used a recipe from Very Best Baking for the pumpkin cheesecake. It included this for the cheesecake:Pumpkin Pie Mix(30 oz), 1/2 cup brown sugar,1 tsp Cinnamon,and cut down to 1 box of cream cheese, 2 eggs. Second thing: I tried the sour cream with sugar (b/c of suggestions) and it was gross with the pie, so I switched to cool whip. Much better after the adjustments were made.
Very easy and impressive. I added 2 Tbsp sugar to sour cream for topping. Looks great served on white cake stand. I made it for Halloween and will be making it again for Thanksgiving minus the spider web design.
I made this recipe for a family halloween party and everyone LOVED it.. the kids even liked it!! unfortunately it didn't look exactly like the picture, my swirls weren't as neat but I recieved tons of compliments on it! They all said it was a cute addition to the party!
