Ingredients for crust:

  • 190 grams of graham crackers or tea biscuits
  • 5 tbsp butter (room temp)
  • 1 tbsp sugar

Ingredients for cake:

  • 24 oz cream cheese
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp allspice
  • 1 cup pumpkin
  • 3 eggs
  • whipped cream (I make my own- heavy whipping cream with confectioners sugar)

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 F.
  2. Crush your graham crackers and mix with the butter and 1 tbsp of sugar. Press into springform pan and bake for 5 min. Set aside.
  3. To make cheesecake, cream the cheese, sugar and vanilla until smooth.
  4. Then add eggs, pumpkin and the spices until creamy.
  5. Pour into crust and bake for about 60 min.
  6. Allow cheesecake to come to room temperature before placing into refrigerator.
  7. Allow cake to set overnight and decorate with whipped cream!

I make my own whipped cream, I don’t like the pre-packaged stuff. I use a small carton of heavy whipping cream and add a tsp of confectioners sugar and let my mixer beat until stiff. Then you can put into a piping bag with a fancy tip and go to town!
