HALLOWEEN PUMPKIN CHEESECAKE WITH GRAVEYARD CRUST RECIPE

Graveyard Crust
1 1/2 cups ground gingersnap cookies
1 1/2 cups toasted pecans (about 6 ounces)
1/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, melted

Halloween Pumpkin Filling
4 8-ounce packages cream cheese, room temperature
1 2/3 cups sugar
1 1/2 cups canned solid pack pumpkin (Check Contents)
9 tablespoons whipping cream (Check Date)
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground allspice
4 large fresh eggs (Check Date)
1 cup fresh sour cream (Check Date)

Steps For the Graveyard Crust:
Open your oven door and check inside for Ghosts or Goblins...!

Then preheat your oven to 350°F.
Finely grind ground cookies, pecans and sugar in a processor. Add melted butter and blend until combined. Press crust mixture onto bottom and up sides of 9-inch-diameter springform pan with 2 3/4-inch-high sides.

Steps For the Halloween Filling:
Using an electric mixer, beat cream cheese and sugar in large bowl until light. Transfer 3/4 cup mixture to small bowl; cover tightly and refrigerate to use for topping. Add the pumpkin, 4 tablespoons whipping cream, ground cinnamon and ground allspice to mixture in large bowl and beat until well combined. Add the eggs one (1) at a time, beating them just until combined.
Pour filling into crust (filling will almost fill pan). Bake until cheesecake puffs, top browns and center moves only slightly when pan is shaken, about 1 hour 15 minutes. Transfer cheesecake to rack and cool 10 minutes. Run small sharp knife around cake pan sides to loosen cheesecake. Cool. Cover tightly and refrigerate overnight.

Bring remaining 3/4 cup cream cheese mixture to room temperature. Add remaining 5 tablespoons whipping cream to cream cheese mixture and stir to combine. Press down firmly on edges of cheesecake to even thickness. Pour cream cheese mixture over cheesecake, spreading evenly. Cover and refrigerate.

Release pan sides from cheesecake. Spoon sour cream into pastry bag and make a decorative border around the cheesecake and serve.

This is a great recipe for a Halloween Party and to spice up your holiday assortment of great desserts.

Serves 10 to 12 delicious and tasty servings to family, friends, ghosts and goblins.

Please enjoy this recipe and have a very happy and safe Halloween and Holiday season.

"A good idea is like a slippery fish.
When you find one, grab hold of it right away
because you may never find one again."
