Eight or nine years ago, I made a Pumpkin Chiffon Cheesecake that was very good. I think it came from either Food & Wine or Bon Appetit, but Google seems to find it for everything BUT those two, and their own websites don't have it.

This one also sounds very good, though.
If blueberry muffins have blueberries in them, what do vegan muffins have?

This sounds so incredible, thanks for posting.
I wonder if I'll be yelled at if I serve this for Thanksgiving instead of the traditional pie???

Don't let the nay sayers get to you, Vicci, the way I see it, if they don't like it, they can make their own. If anyone sqawks, don't let them have a piece.

Everything tastes better Alfresco!
