I love pumpkin anything, so this time of year is my favorite for baked treats and pumpkin flavored lattes at all my favorite places. Here is a recipe I was hoping to use for thanksgiving, but seeing as I have been put on a hypoallergenic diet for a while (my baby was having issues, so the doc wants to see if it's something I'm eating), I won't be able to try this until later on. But please let me live vicariously through you, with this new spin on pumpkin pie, as a delicious cheesecake. This is the recipe for the Cheesecake Factory Pie, so it's bound to be good!

Bake for 60-70 min. or till the top turns a bit darker. Remove from oven and allow to come to room temperature, then refrigerate. After it has thoroughly chilled, remove the pan sides and cut.
