Slice and serve pumpkin cheesecake

For this recipe, I've used half the usual quantities for cheesecake and have made it in a shallow flan pan, in an attempt to reduce the serving sizes for our family dessert. We all love something sweet after dinner, and we all love cheesecake, so cutting down portion sizes assists a little in controlling calorie consumption.

We're careful with what we consume and often, (though not frequently enough) take the trouble to prepare our foods from the basic source rather than from a processed source. For example, you could start with a store bought crumb crust and you could use cans of prepared pumpkin, but concern for healthy eating means I would prefer not to consume preservatives and trans fats that are common in processed foods.
