This pumpkin cheesecake recipe has fond childhood memories with mixed emotions. I cannot remember much about my father. He disappeared when I was still a little boy. This is a true story.
This pumpkin cheesecake is one thing I can remember about my father. Although I was only told this at a later age. He used to stay over on a farm on his travels between two major cities. This pumpkin cheesecake was one of his favorite dishes and always asked for it when he stayed over on the farm.
Large pumpkins were one of the vegetables produced on the farm and the farm also had a dairy, making it a suitable environment to bake pumpkin cheesecakes. I always think of my father whenever I eat this pumpkin cheesecake. It is one of the few memories I have of him. I savor every bite, wondering where he is and what happened to him.
I often get asked for this pumpkin cheesecake recipe, so I decided to share this fond family recipe in honor of my father and maybe he will read this, if he is out there, somewhere. His name was or is, Gilbert Ross.
Please feel free to have a look at our classic and popular easy cheesecake recipe if you prefer a sweeter taste over a savory taste.
To the dad I never knew, this is for you. To anyone else, please let us know what you think of this recipe. You can also take a snapshot and tag us on Instagram @cookingcatdotcom.
