Pumpkin Cheesecake with Oreo-Pecan Crumb Crust

At times I surprise myself on how I’m able to make a product look desirable and then there are times it doesn’t always work in my favor. Earlier this year, a white chocolate cheesecake was disastrous right from the start.  From the moment I placed that cheesecake into the oven, I purposefully ignored the leaking batter from the spring-form pan thinking the heat will cook the cheesecake …
