Pumpkin Cheesecake Filling

  1. Add farmer's cheese, dripped yogurt, pumpkin puree, eggs, vanilla, honey, and spices to food processor

  2. Process until mixture is very smooth - about three minutes

  3. Pour mixture into springform pan on top of baked crust

  4. Bake for 50 - 60 minutes until cheesecake is set - it should be solid around the edges and just a little soft in the middle, without being runny. The cheesecake will continue to cook in the middle after it's out of the oven so you don't want it to get overdone.

  5. Cook on counter for 30 - 60 minutes

  6. Leave in springform pan and refrigerate for several hours or overnight

  7. Remove ring of spring form pan, cut and serve

  8. Store in refrigerator for up to five days. Freeze for up to three months. Remove from freezer to refrigerator for several hours to thaw if frozen.
