Because I like to cook, when I am not cooking the 'feast' I want to bring something a little special so I feel I contributed to the special day. I am traveling this Thanksgiving and decided to make the following recipe:

Pumpkin - Pineapple Cheesecake

It doesn't get any better than this luscious, creamy pumpkin cheesecake, drizzled with a pineapple glaze and juicy pineapple slices. (And it's another way to fit vitamin A-rich pumpkin into your menu plans!)

Ingredients:
Cake:
No-stick cooking spray
1/2 cups firmly packed brown sugar, divided
12 ounces light cream cheese, softened
1 can (16 ounce) solid-pack pumpkin
4 eggs
2 tablespoons flour
4 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Vegetable cooking spray

Glaze:
1 can (15 1/2 ounce) sliced pineapples in heavy syrup

Preparation Time: Approximately 15 minutes

Cook Time: Approximately 120 minutes

Preparation:
For the cake: Heat the oven to 350º F. Place a pan of hot water on the rack of oven. Coat an 8-inch springform pan with no-stick spray. Set aside 2 tablespoons of brown sugar. Beat the remaining sugar and cream cheese until smooth.

Mix in the pumpkin, eggs, flour, spice and vanilla. Pour into the prepared pan and bake for 50 minutes. Turn off the oven and let the cake stand in the oven for 1 hour. Remove from the oven and cool on a rack to room temperature. Loosen the edge of the cake with a knife and refrigerate for at least 3 hours.

For the glaze: Drain the pineapple, reserving the syrup. Chop 1 pineapple slice finally; combine it with the reserved syrup and the remaining 2 tablespoons brown sugar in a saucepan and cook over medium-high heat for 8 minutes or until thick; do not stir. Just before serving, arrange the remaining pineapple slices on the cake and top with the glaze.
