Pumpkin Cheesecake Family Recipe

If you are new to my blog, you may not know our family history. My husband’s family has been in the cheese business here in Wisconsin for more than 40 years. This cheese cake is a seasonal favorite at our family’s Cheese House restaurant. It never fails to disappoint!

The secret, is that it’s very easy to make. This is one of those treats where you don’t look at calories or worry about fat content. Because, if you do, the experience is not the same. This is not your average cheesecake, but cheesecake for the hearty appetite. You can thank me later!

We have sampled cheesecakes at different restaurants over the years, but let me tell you this one puts them all to shame. Even the Cheesecake Factory can’t compare to this.
