Double Layer Pumpkin Pie (Cheesecake)

pumpkin cheesecake at sweet inspirations : upper market street, castro,  san francisco (2013)Good luck turning your nose up at this one.  Kara made this for our first Thanksgiving together.  We were up at her dad’s house making the big dinner and we actually argued if this was cheesecake or not.  See, Kara didn’t like cheesecake at this time.  Until she tried this beaut of a recipe!  Now she’s a born again cheesecake lover….except for the plain Jane cherry cheesecake.  She won’t touch that with a ten-foot pole!  Anyways, enjoy! If you’re having company, please make 2.  They’ll usually eat one by themselves (personal experience talking here!).
