Great recipe, Cookster! There's another terrific pumpkin cheesecake in our Grandma's Cookbook. Here it is:

Pumpkin Marble Cheesecake

* 1-1/2 cups gingersnap crumbs

* 1/2 cup finely chopped pecans

* 1/3 cup butter, melted

* 24 ounces cream cheese, softened

* 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar, divided

* 1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract

* 4 large eggs

* 1-1/2 cups pumpkin purée (fresh cooked or canned)

* 1 teaspoon cinnamon

* 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg

Preheat oven to 350°F.

Combine gingersnap crumbs, pecans and butter. Press onto bottom and 1-1/2 inches up sides of a 9-inch springform pan. Bake for 10 minutes in 350°F oven. Remove and allow to cool.

Combine cream cheese, 2/3 cup sugar and vanilla, mixing at medium speed on electric mixer until well blended. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Remove 1 cup batter from mixture and chill.

Add remaining sugar, pumpkin and spices to remaining batter; mix well.

Alternately layer pumpkin and cream cheese batters over the gingersnap crust. Cut through layers of batter with a knife several times to achieve marble effect.

Bake at 350°F for 1 hour and 15 minutes. Loosen cake from rim of pan; cool before removing rim of pan. Chill before serving.
