    THIS IS ONE OF THE BEST IN THE CATAGORY. THE NUTS REALLY SET IT OFF.

    Made this cheesecake last night as a trial run for Thanksgiving. Excellent recipe and I will make it for Thanksgiving. Subtle pumpkin flavor and excellent crust with the topping make this a showy dessert. I do think, however, that a bit of vanilla and using cinnamon as one reviewer suggested will enhance the flavor better. Also I may try the pecans instead of the almonds. All in all this looks like it will be a standard dessert at my Thanksgiving table.
