Ingredients

For the Crust

For the Pumpkin Cheesecake Filling

  • 24 oz. cream cheese at room temperature, 3 packages
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 4 large eggs at room temperature
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree
  • 2 tablespoons all purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cloves

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Wrap the exterior of a 9-inch springform pan well in heavy duty foil to prepare it for a water bath. (It may take two or three layers to ensure it is sealed well.)
  • In a medium bowl, stir graham cracker crumbs with melted butter and sugar until moist. Press into the bottom and up the sides of springform pan. Bake 8 minutes.
  • Reduce oven temperature to 325 degrees.
  • In a large bowl, stir cream cheese with sugar and brown sugar until completely smooth and well combined. Scrape the sides of the bowl and stir again to ensure a well mixed batter. Stir in pumpkin, flour, vanilla and spices. Scrape the sides and bottom of the bowl and mix again to ensure a uniform, lump-free batter. In a separate bowl, crack eggs and beat together. All at once, pour eggs in and stir until just combined.
  • Pour cheesecake filling into graham cracker crust and smooth the top. Place into the center of a roasting pan and pour in hot water to roasting pan until water is half way up the cheesecake pan, about 1 1/2-2 inches of water. Bake 70 minutes. Turn oven off, crack oven door and cool cheesecake 1-2 hours before removing, bringing to room temperature, covering and refrigerating.
  • To serve, remove springform pan edges, cut cheesecake into slices and serve with whipped cream and caramel sauce.
