Pumpkin Cheesecake

I haven't been cooking!! Can you believe it!?! We have had Thanksgiving dinners to attend for church, and then we have been eating out in between that. No, we don't have the money to eat out, but I have been in a major cooking rut latley. I need some new recipes and ideas!! Please! Someone, give me some ideas!!

The Menu:
                                                 Pumpkin Cheesecake

The Original Recipe:
This is from my stepmother... I plan on revising this, but I wanted to make it first to see how it tastes. It would taste great with a gingersnap crust and some caramel and gingersnaps on top... but I will leave that for another time.
