I have been baking a lot these days. The crisp fall air and fall flavors had me dreaming up this Pumpkin Cheesecake Pie a few weeks ago.

Cheesecake has been one of my favorite desserts for a long time. It’s so filling though, it’s almost a meal in itself sometimes.

When it comes to making cheesecake I can’t emphasize enough to just go for the real thing. This is not the place to substitute a reduced-fat cream cheese. The full fat version bakes up creamier and delicious.

It is also key to use room temperature eggs. Once the eggs are added do not over mix. Mixing eggs for too long incorporates air into your cheesecake batter. The trapped air can cause cracks during baking and cooling.

Pumpkin Cheesecake Pie with Graham Cracker Crust

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Mix the graham cracker crumbs and sugar together. Pour melted butter over the crumbs and stir until moistened. Press the mixture in the bottom of a 9-inch springform pan. Bake for 8-9 minutes.
  2. Reduce oven temperature to 325°F. In a large bowl, beat together the cream cheese and brown sugar until smooth. Stir in the pumpkin, flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger.
  3. Break the eggs into a small bowl and lightly beat with a fork. Add the eggs to the cream cheese mixture and stir just until well combined. Pour on top of the graham cracker crust.
  4. Bake at 325°F for 45-60 minutes or until the cheesecake is no longer shiny and jiggly. At the end of the hour, turn off the oven and leave the oven door shut for another 90 minutes before opening the oven door. The long cooling period will help minimize cracks.
  5. Remove the cheesecake from the oven and cool completely. Serve with whipped cream.
