Pumpkin Cheesecake in a
Gingersnap Crust

“If you like both pumpkin and cheesecake, you’ll love
this combination. A small slice of this rich and creamy
pie feels like an extravagant treat.”

Makes on 10-inch pie

1/2 cup pecan halves, plus
more for decoration
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
1 cup gingersnap crumbs
(from about 20 cookies)
5 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
1 pound cream cheese, at
room temperature
2/3 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup sour cream,
at room temperature
1 cup fresh pumpkin purée or
canned pumpkin purée
[not pumpkin and pie filling]
1 teaspoon cinnamon
Pinch ground cloves
Pinch ground ginger
3 large eggs, at room temperature

1.  Heat the oven to 325 degrees [F.] In a food processor, chop the
1/2 cup of pecans with the granulated sugar until fine. Put the
chopped nuts into a large bowl and stir in the gingersnap crumbs.
Pour in the butter and stir to combine. Put the cookie-crumb-
and-pecan mixture into a 10-inch pie pan and press it evenly
against the bottom and sides of the pan to make a crust. Bake
the crust in the middle of the oven for 10 minutes. Let cool.
2. In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese and brown sugar with an
electric mixer until soft and smooth, about 3 minutes. Add the sour
cream, pumpkin, cinnamon, cloves, and ginger, and beat until just
combined. Beat in the eggs one at a time.
3. Put the pie crust on a baking sheet and pour in the filling. Bake
in the middle of the oven until the filling is set, about 45 minutes.
Transfer to a rack and let cool. Decorate the pie with additional
pecan halves.

Make It Ahead:  Because its cookie-crumb crust won’t get soggy like
a regular pie crust, the cheesecake can be made a day in advance and
 [Editor’s Note: We recommend this in any case, to give
the delicious flavor of this dessert a chance to intensify.]
