Ingredients

Crust:

  • 2 ½ cups graham cracker crumbs
  • ½ cup unsalted butter melted
  • 2 Tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin spice

Pumpkin Cheesecake Filling:

  • 24 ounces cream cheese room temperature
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 ½ teaspoons pumpkin spice
  • 3 large eggs room temperature
  • 15 oz can pumpkin pie filling
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • ½ cup heavy cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Whipped Cream:

Garnish:

  • Ground Cinnamon
  • Caramel Sauce

Instructions

Cheesecake Crust:

  • Coat a 9-inch springform pan with nonstick baking spray. Set aside.
  • On the outside, wrap the bottom and sides of the springform pan in a double layer of foil.
  • Add all the CRUST ingredients except melted butter to a large bowl and combine.
  • Add melted butter and stir until well combined.
  • Press the mixture into the prepared pan to line the sides about 1 inch up the side.
  • Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.

Pumpkin Cheesecake Filling:

  • Preheat oven to 325˚ F.
  • In a large bowl, beat cream cheese until light and creamy, about 1 minute.
  • Add sugar, salt, pumpkin spice and flour, mix until completely combined and there are no lumps.
  • On low speed, add the eggs, one at a time, and beat until just mixed.
  • Add pumpkin, sour cream, cream and vanilla. Beat until combined, stopping to scrape the bottom and sides of the bowl with a spatula.
  • Pour the batter into the prepared pan and level.

Bake:

  • Set the springform pan inside a larger pan, such as a roasting pan. Add HOT water to the roasting pan, about halfway up the sides of the springform pan.
  • Bake for 50-55 minutes. Or until the cheesecake is slightly wobbly in the center, yet puffy on the sides.

Cool:

  • Turn the oven off, leaving the door open a crack. Cool cheesecake completely this way for about 2 hours.
  • Place it on the counter at room temperature to completely cool. Run a butter knife around the edges to release it from the pan, after which refrigerate it for at least 6 hours or overnight.

Whipped Cream:

  • Add all the ingredients to a large bowl and with a hand mixer whisk on slow-medium speed, gradually increasing to high speed until soft peaks.
  • Pipe the whipped cream onto the cheesecake and sprinkle a bit of ground cinnamon on top.
  • Slice and serve drizzled with caramel sauce.
