Thanksgiving Dessert of the Day: Almost-Famous Pumpkin Cheesecake

Pumpkin Cheesecake is a seasonal special at the Cheesecake Factory chain, and diners can't get enough. Good thing Food Network Magazine asked our kitchens to create the perfect replica. Even die-hard pumpkin pie traditionalists won't miss the classic after a forkful of this decadent treat. Sure, it's rich—as cheesecake should be!—but still fluffy and light thanks to a filling that combines cream cheese, sour cream and pure pumpkin. A sprinkling of toasted pecans adds a festive touch.
