Thanksgiving Dessert of the Day: Almost-Famous Pumpkin Cheesecake

by in View All Posts, November 12th, 2010
The Cheesecake Factory wouldn't share the recipe for its popular November special, so Food Network kitchens got to work and recreated it.

Pumpkin Cheesecake is a seasonal special at the Cheesecake Factory chain, and diners can’t get enough. Good thing Food Network Magazine asked our kitchens to create the perfect replica. Even die-hard pumpkin pie traditionalists won’t miss the classic after a forkful of this decadent treat. Sure, it’s rich—as cheesecake should be!—but still fluffy and light thanks to a filling that combines cream cheese, sour cream and pure pumpkin. A sprinkling of toasted pecans adds a festive touch.
