A Thanksgiving Recipe

Last Thanksgiving I shared my recipe for Cranberry Salad. This year I am sharing a recipe for one of Jake and Sam's favorites: Pumpkin Marble Cheesecake.

PUMPKIN MARBLE CHEESECAKE

1 1/2 c Gingersnap Crumbs

1/2 c Finely Chopped Pecans

1/3 c Margarine, Melted

16 oz Cream Cheese, Softened

3/4 c Sugar

1 ts Vanilla

3 ea Eggs

1 c Canned Pumpkin

3/4 ts Cinnamon

1/4 ts Ground Nutmeg

Combine crumbs, pecans and margarine; press onto
bottom and 1 1/2-inches up sides of 9-inch springform
pan. Bake at 350 degrees F., 10 minutes. Combine
cream cheese, 1/2 c sugar and vanilla, mixing at
medium speed on electric mixer until well blended.
Add eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each
addition. Reserve 1 c batter, chill. Add remaining
sugar, pumpkin and spices to remaining batter; mix
well. Alternately layer pumpkin and cream cheese
batters over crust. Cut through batters with knife
several times for marble effect. Bake at 350 degrees
F., 55 minutes. Loosen cake from rim of pan; cool
before removing rim of pan. Chill.

**I've had this post ready in draft, waiting for a photo, but I decided to post it a bit early since my friend Jules is baking the same or a similar cheesecake at the same time I am! So, Jules, is it the same recipe?
