this was the BEST pie/cake we have ever had. I use pumpkin pie filling in place of pumpkin butter.

I think this is misnamed; it should be something like "creamy pumpkin pie with pecans" because it doesn't really look or taste like cheesecake, rather it's more pumpkin pie like in taste, looks and consistency. It doesn't taste bad at all, but when you are expecting a cheesecake and that's not what it is, it's a little off-putting, and so I couldn't appreciate the taste fully. That's why I gave it a four star rating. I bought my pumpkin butter at Trader Joe's.

I agree that perhaps the recipe is misnamed "cheesecake" but it was amazing. Everyone who had it loved it and wanted the recipe. personal preferences that worked: I used 3/4 cup pecan halves (instead of 1/2 cup chopped pecans, this made it prettier but possibly harder to cut) and added a couple of tablespoons of pure maple syrup for the topping. I also used a low-fat crust and low-fat cream cheese.
