With Thanksgiving coming, people already start asking about my famous pumpkin pie. I alwasy make around 5 or 6 every year, just for my family. Here is the recipe if you guys want give it a try. I got this one from www.kraftfoods.com.

1-2/3 cups HONEY MAID Graham Cracker Crumbs
1 cup sugar, divided
1/4 cup PLANTERS Sliced Almonds, chopped
5 Tbsp. margarine or butter, melted
3 pkg. (8 oz. each) PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese, softened
1 cup solid pack canned pumpkin
1/2 cup BREAKSTONE'S or KNUDSEN Sour Cream
2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
4 eggs

PREHEAT oven to 350°F if using a silver 9-inch springform pan (or to 325°F if using a dark nonstick springform pan). Mix graham cracker crumbs, 1/3 cup of the sugar, almonds and margarine until well blended. Press firmly onto bottom and 2 inches up side of pan; set aside.
BEAT cream cheese and remaining 2/3 cup sugar in large bowl with electric mixer on medium speed until well blended. Add pumpkin, sour cream and spice; mix well. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating on low speed after each addition just until blended. Pour into crust.
BAKE 1 hour. Turn off oven. Open door slightly; let cheesecake stand in oven 30 minutes.
PREHEAT broiler. Spread Almond Crunch Topping over warm cheesecake. Broil 6 inches from heat for 2 minutes or until golden brown. Run small knife or spatula around rim of pan to loosen cake; cool before removing rim of pan. Refrigerate at least 4 hours before serving. Store leftover cheesecake in refrigerator.
