Pumpkin Cheesecake

This is the recipe I get told to bring, not asked LOL at Thanksgiving. Don't worry about that crack on top, you cover it with tons of whipping cream!

The crust is extra special with gingersnaps and pecans.

Ohh, I want some now:)

It is very easy to prepare and tastes like you spent hours preparing it.
