You can make this dessert a little more diet-friendly by using lower calorie cream cheese, sugar substitute (like Splenda), fat-free whipped topping, and a reduced fat graham cracker crust. The recipe doesn't specify, but you'll want to slightly thaw the whipped topping before blending into the pumpkin mixture. The result is a light tasting pumpkiny dessert that isn't overly sweet or filling.

I made it today and it turned out great!
I used Splenda instead of the sugar and found a yummy oatmeal crust that turned out yummy.
Highly recommend :)

I was preparing for a large public Harvest Dinner as a fundraiser for our fraternal order, the Knights of Columbus, and chose to make this recipe. I made 20 regular and 2 sugarfree pies (cheesecakes). It was relatively easy to make and the positive feedback was overwhelming. Many who tasted this dessert are now asking for the recipe. I would make this again.

Excellent recipe! I used a baked pie crust for the base and my guests enjoyed it so much that they asked for the recipe.

This cheesecake was very easy to make. My whole family loved the cheesecake. My husband is very picky with food and he ate almost the whole cheesecake. Then he asked me when am I going to make another one. I'm very glad I found this recipie. It was a perfect dessert very light to complement a heavy dinner. Thank you for the recipie.

ok I never write reviews... but this was a excellent recipe! I used splendia, and 3parts cinnamon and 1\2 part gr.cloves and 1\2 part nutmeg for the pumpkin pie spice, I decorated it with ginger snap crumbs and dusting of the cinnamon. Looks wonderful tastes great, and super easy! I would tell any chef young or old to try this, my family thought I bought it from a bakery! WOW!

A low carb dessert with the consistency of a mousse...it is not a cheescake. It is light, set up quickly and cut well. I made it even more low carb by eliminating the crust and used Splenda instead of sugar with only 5 carbs per serving. Next time I will add cocoa for something different and garnish it with shaved chocolate. Place in a wine glass and chill as recommended then serve. Do not hand whip this...use a hand mixer, it will incorporate the cream cheese better.
