Rustic Pumpkin Cheesecake
Cheesecakes baked without ricotta are sub par in my opinion, so I came up with this recipe after much experimenting.
"Rustic" in this case means there is no water bath, no effort to make it look perfect. It looks and tastes like it's been baked by "a hippie in the mountains of Vermont"
The original version of this cake has 35 grams of fat per slice when whole fat cheeses and when a lot of butter is used. This version has 14 grams of fat yet does not compromise creaminess, firmness, and taste.Submitted by: BLUESUNSHINEFL
