Pumpkin Cheesecake

Comment on this recipe

"Some people like this cheesecake served warm just like pumpkin pie."

Ingredients

1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
3/4 cup white sugar
2 tablespoons flour
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
Dash of salt (one light shake over mixture)
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 eggs
3/4 cup pumpkin, canned or fresh
10-inch graham cracker crust

Instructions

Combine together the sugar and cream cheese and beat for 2 to 3 minutes on medium speed until very smooth. Add the flour, cinnamon, salt, vanilla, eggs and pumpkin and beat well.

Pour mixture into a 10-inch graham cracker crust and bake at 350 degrees for 25 to 30 minutes. A prick with a toothpick should come out clean. Cool, then chill and serve. Refrigerate any leftover cheesecake.
