Pecan Pie Cheesecake

I'm really big on improvising and modifying recipes especially if I look in my cupboards and don't have all the specific ingredients. I get a lot of different recipes sent to me through different sites that I sign up for. This one I had to modify only because I did not want to send my poor husband on a hunt through a busy grocery store to find 'crystallized ginger' pieces which this recipe called for So instead of it being a 'Pecan Pie Ginger Cheesecake' it's simply a Pecan Pie Cheesecake! I also added some nutmeg to the cheesecake mixture and chopped up almonds along with the pecans for the topping. I am taking this pie to a family potluck tomorrow so we'll have to see when it's cut into how it turned out and tasted! What are you making for your family Christmas get togethers?

Where did you find the ginger? I didn't look overly hard for it at the store but I should try it with the ginger too.
