Ingredients

  • 3/4 c. graham crackers, crushed
  • 3/4 c. ginger snaps, crushed
  • 6 tbsp. unsalted butter, melted
  • 2 tbsp. granulated sugar
  • kosher salt
  • 3 (8-oz.) bars cream cheese, softened
  • 1 c. packed light brown sugar
  • 1 c. pumpkin puree
  • 1/4 c. sour cream, at room temperature
  • 1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
  • 3 large eggs, at room temperature
  • 1 tbsp. all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp. pumpkin spice, plus more for garnish
  • Warm caramel, for garnish
  • whipped cream, for garnish
  • Chopped, toasted pecans, for garnish

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 325° with a rack in the middle position. Grease an 8” springform pan with cooking spray.
  2. Make crust: In a large bowl, add cookie and graham cracker crumbs. Stir in butter, granulated sugar, and a pinch of salt and mix until well combined. Press crust into bottom of pan.
  3. Meanwhile, make cheesecake batter: In a large bowl using a hand mixer, beat cream cheese and brown sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in pumpkin puree, sour cream, and vanilla extract. Add eggs, 1 at a time, until well combined, then beat in flour, pumpkin spice, and ¼ tsp. salt. Pour cheesecake mixture over crust.
  4. Double-wrap outside of pan in aluminum foil, making sure to cover the bottom. Place pan in a large baking dish, place the baking dish in the oven, and pour in enough boiling water to reach halfway up the pan. Bake until only slightly jiggly in center, 1 hour 25 minutes to 1 hour 40 minutes.
  5. With oven door propped open, turn oven off and let cool 1 hour in the oven. Remove from water bath and discard foil, then refrigerate cheesecake until cooled completely, at least 3 hours or overnight.
  6. Garnish with a layer of caramel and a few dollops of whipped cream around the edge of the cheesecake. Sprinkle all over with pecans and more pumpkin pie spice.
