Pumpkin Cheesecake

As I've mentioned before, I love pumpkin flavored anything! I had the most amazing pumpkin cheesecake at Plaza III, and i had to try to recreate it! I was unsuccessful in getting their recipe from them (they don't make it there). I looked around online and found this recipe from that looked fairly simple, as this was my first cheesecake attempt. It was pretty easy, and was beyond delicious!

12 graham crackers-about 2 cups crushed (i used the cinnamon sugar graham crackers)
1/2 c butter, melted
1/4 c powdered sugar

14 oz. sweetened condensed milk
1/2 c sugar
