    These look absolutely amazing! I was thinking of making pumpkin swirled brownies, but this cheesecake is really talking to me instead…

    I love these! They look insanely delicious, and I’m not even a typical cheesecake person. Love the swirling pattern on top, and of course the combo of chocolate and pumpkin, one of my favorites! This looks like one to try. πŸ™‚

    Made these tonight and then while cooling a crack formed in the middle. Does this mean I overcooked it? I have no experience making cheesecakes πŸ™ They smell amazing! But, haven’t tasted them yet since they are still setting. Any suggestions for the next time I make them?

      Hi Patty – cheesecake can crack when the batter is over-beaten or when it’s overcooked. Sometimes it just happens but it has no effect on the taste or texture though. They may shrink a little when they cool too so the crack may be less obvious.
