Pumpkin Layer Cheesecake

I made this for Thanksgiving last year and ended up having to make it for Christmas too because everyone was so excited about it. I am an inexperienced cook/ baker and I was not confident that anything I touched would be well-received. I was wrong. This recipe is fantastic and I will be making it again for the holidays because it puts a big smile on many people's faces.

So surprised to see margarine and splenda, which I consider chemical poisons in this recipe. It makes me question the recipe developer. Dietitian comment: You can substitute with sugar and butter if desired.

Can you substitute a yam for the pumpkin? Dietitian comment: Only if you aren't restricting potassium. One half cup cooked yams has 455 mg potassium compared to 250 mg in the canned pumpkin. You could double boil the yam to remove some potassium. Another alternative that's lowest in potassium is low salt canned or cooked carrots.

What is the conversion to regular sugar? Dietitian comment: Replace 1/4 cup Splenda® No Calorie Sweetener, granulated with 1/4 cup granulated sugar.

Can you use 1/3 low fat cream cheese in this recipe? Sounds like an excellent recipe. I will increase the pumpkin spice and add some cinnamon and nutmeg to taste. Dietitian comment: In general lower fat cream cheese is higher in sodium than regular. The substitution should not chage the quality of the cheesecake.

I made the pumpkin cheesecake for Thanksgiving and it was a real hit. I opted for low fat items since my husband is dieting and it didn't make it too soft or off-tasting. Next time I will try using eggbeaters rather than eggs for cholesterol cutting. I will also make my own crust with allowed ingredients. I didn't use any suger(all Splenda) and it worked fine. My husband is pre-diebetic so the less sugar the better. We are not cheesecake eaters but we really liked this!
