Double Layer Pumpkin Cheesecake


    Tonight I had the conversation with my sweet mother in law... what about turkey day? What are we making? Who is bringing what?... I have to admit I had not given it too much thought yet... A small panic hit me I told her I would get back to her tomorrow after church... I needed time to pray about it :)
   Now is research time. I began searching through all my bookmarked thanksgiving recipes and though my recipe box and found this gem. I have not made it for a few years but it is totally a keeper. So much better than plain pumpkin pie!! I know I was a downer on pumpkin pies a few weeks ago too, but they are just not my favorite. This still gives you the tradition pumpkin taste, but also a cheesecake richness as well.. You can not go wrong with cheesecake anything in my book. Make it now so you can convince your family this is one of the desserts hitting your table this Thanksgiving!!!
