I blend a few spoonfulls of pumpkin in and spice with nutmeg and cinnamon! It is delicious! I also do one with instant coffee in it. I've had people ask to buy them for their holiday parties! I use instant pie crusts though! A chocolate crust for the coffee one. Great recipe!

I substitute 8 oz of goat cheese for 8 oz of cream cheese (50/50 blend). Many of these kinds of goat cheese come in 8 oz "logs". The cheesecake doesn't taste like goat cheese, but adds a great tangy flavor to it. I am now starting to experiment with higher percentages of goat cheese. I did not like the goat cheese with honey. That was way too strong.

Best cheesecake ever according to my grandkids. We substitute Keebler's Sandies cookies for graham crackers, and serve with fresh strawberries. Yum!

I found this recipe in the Food Network Mag So easy to make a hit with family and friends. I have also mixed in 1 small container of marscapone cheese with the cream cheese. For a special twist right before serving I take a Hershey bar out of the fridge and shave some over the top I have also sliced strawberries put in a bowl next to it just incase someone would like to make it a strawberry topped cheesecake. I have made it in the spring form pan and in the 13 x 9 pan(double the recipe) turns out just the same. I make more of the graham cracker crust and bring that up the sides of the pan since we all love the crust. You can crumble some of the graham cracker crust on top. Other toppings we have used but be sure they are cold are shaved Snicker bars, shaved Reeses Peanut Butter cups, mini choc chips and crushed Heath Bars. NEVER a complaint

My brother and I have altered the recipe to be gluten-free. We blend an entire package of Annie's Gluten-Free Chocolate and Vanilla Bunnies cookies in the blender to crumbs and use them instead of graham cracker crumbs. Delicious!
