Pumpkin Cheesecake

Do you love pumpkin? We always look forward to winter as we know pumpkin pie and pumpkin bread will soon be in our kitchen. This is a simple pumpkin cheesecake recipe using canned pumpkin:

1 graham cracker crust
1 egg yolk (to brush the pie crust)
16 ounces of cream cheese, softened
2 eggs

3 /4 cup sugar
1 can of pumpkin
1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ginger

Brush the pie crust with the egg yolk. Bake at 350 degrees for 5 minutes. Mix together the cream cheese, sugar and eggs. Your filling should be smooth and without lumps. We use an electric mixer to do this. Add in the pumpkin, cinnamon, and ginger. Mix well. Pour pumpkin mixture into the pie crust and bake about 45 minutes. Middle should be set. Allow to cool and then refrigerate for several hours. Cut and serve.
