We are a family that loves food and loves to cook, so Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. I’d like to share one of my family’s favorites, Pumpkin Cheesecake Pie. I found the recipe originally in the very early 80’s, and made it for my first “adult” Thanksgiving. It was an instant hit. You can use “lite” cream cheese without hurting the results at all.
