“This is a very old recipe and it seems like there are a lot of ingredients, but it is worth the effort. I use the extra whipping cream to decorate the top of the cheesecake.”

I make cheesecake all the time and this, topped with maple pecan glaze from another recipe, was voted the best ever by my friends. A nice change of pace for fall, or anytime really. The glaze: Simmer 1 cup whipping cream with 3/4 cup real maple syrup for about 20 min; stir in 1/2 cup chopped pecans and chill.

I followed another reviewers suggestion and made sure the cream cheese and eggs were at room tempature. I made the cheesecake 2 days ahead and it was perfect. I cooked it with a 9x13 pan of water under the cake to prevent cracks. I put pecans on the top edge like the picture and made the pecan glaze as suggested with 1 cup whipping cream, 3/4 cup maple syrup (I used imitation). I didn't add the glaze until right before serving. I omited the vanilla and lemon extracts and the flavor was perfect. I entered the cheesecake into a pumpkin festival baking contest and it won the grand overall prize. The cake is awesome!!

Every year my husband and I always try a new pumpkin cheesecake recipe. My husband said "the search is over, this is THE ONE!" and I have to agree. The pecans in the crust were wonderful. There wasn't anything about this recipe that wasn't perfect. I did add nutmeg to mine instead of the mace but I doubt that changed the flavor too much. Thank you so much for sharing!!! 7/20/12-we tried this one again and it was a winner!!!
