Spiced Pumpkin Cheesecake

The cool Autumn weather has sparked a baking streak in my kitchen. I wanted to make a fun dessert that incorporates pumpkin and spice. This Spiced Pumpkin Cheesecake is so appropriate for this time of year and it came out delicious!


1 box of gingersnaps (approximately 40 cookies), finely crushed
1/4 cup of butter, melted
4 pkgs (8 oz each) of cream cheese, softened
1 cup of sugar
1 can (15 oz) of pumpkin
1 Tbsp of pumpkin spice
1 tsp of vanilla
4 eggs
1/2 tsp of ground nutmeg



Mix crushed ginger snaps with melted butter. Press mixture into bottom of 9-inch spring-foam pan. Beat cream cheese and sugar with mixer until well blended. Add pumpkin, spice and vanilla. Mix well. Add eggs, one at a time, mixing after each just until blended. Pour mixture into pan. Bake at 325 degrees F for 1 hr 30 min. Sprinkle the ground nutmeg over the top. Refrigerate for 4 - 6 hours before serving. Enjoy!
