Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cheesecake Tips:
This cheesecake recipe is quite easy, even though it takes over four hours because of the chilling.
A word of warning–you do not want to cut it short and eat it warm. I may have done that once. It is gross. The chilling is what gives cheesecake its texture, so just be patient. It's worth it.
Why is it that we only eat pumpkin in the fall? I'm going to keep a can in the pantry and down the road in the spring instead of going all lemon I'm going to break out the pumpkin. Who's with me?
