Expert Tips

Pumpkin contains carotenoids, plant pigments that color them orange-yellow. Carotenoids are a form of vitamin A that help with vision.

Be sure to use canned pumpkin, not pumpkin pie filling, for this cheesecake. Pumpkin pie filling contains other ingredients and will not work in this recipe.

To help prevent cracks in the cheesecake, do not overbeat the mixture once the eggs are added.
