About 20 years ago my husband came home from a company party raving about the pumpkin cheesecake they served. As I am not a pumpkin lover this didn't sound at all appetizing. Shortly afterwards I came across this recipe in a magazine but I don't recall which one. Although I do love cheesecake I did not expect to like this at all. To my surprise this is not only the best cheesecake I've ever had it is also the most beautiful. I normally don't care about the appearance of my cooking efforts as long as things taste amazing but this comes out magazine-picture ready each and every time.
