9 Reviews for Marbled Pumpkin Cheesecake


I didn't have a 9" so used 10". Worked out great. Also cooked it one hour, but otherwise followed the instructions.


This cheesecake came out wonderfully! I think the key here is to add just a little more cornstarch to the pumpkin mixture if it seems too liquidy--I added about a teaspoon more. I also baked the cheesecake alone, without the roasting pan and boiling water, which probably allowed it to set up more effectively. Don't give up on it, it's really worth it. And use fresh roasted pumpkin, if possible!

I would rather bake it. What

I would rather bake it. What temperature and how long? Thanks!


Very disappointing. I think the oven temperature was too low - the cheesecake wouldn't set up. Raised temperature after 1 hour to 350, ended up baking for 1 1/2 hours. Looked nice, but was extremely soft and collapsed when cut...not a nice presentation. Won't make again.


I don't know what happened to it, whether I needed to bake it much longer than the recipe said, or I didn't keep it cold enough before serving, but the pumpkin swirl was extremely mushy. The taste was good, though it wsa not the texture of cheesecake.
