Directions

{{model.addEditText}} Print
  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C). Brush the inside of a 10-inch springform pan with 1 teaspoon softened butter.
  2. Mix graham cracker crumbs, cinnamon, 1/4 cup white sugar, and 1/4 cup melted butter together in a bowl until incorporated. Press mixture into the bottom of the springform pan.
  3. Beat cream cheese and 1 1/2 cup white sugar together in a bowl until smooth. Add eggs, 1 at a time, blending in each egg before adding the next. Stir in cream, pumpkin, 2 teaspoons vanilla extract, and pumpkin pie spice until thoroughly blended. Pour cream cheese mixture over the graham cracker crust.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until cheesecake is set in the middle, 1 1/2 hours. Remove from oven and let rest for 10 minutes, or leave on oven rack with door ajar for up to several hours.
  5. Beat sour cream, 1/2 cup sugar, and 2 teaspoons vanilla extract together in a bowl until smooth. Pour sour cream topping over cheesecake. Chill in refrigerator before removing sides of pan, about 3 hours.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • Place a pan of hot water on lower oven shelf and cook the cheesecake on top shelf to avoid cracks (even though cracks will be covered by topping). Additionally, I often use the sour cream topping for my plain cheesecakes; it enhances a natural beauty.

Made this for the first time a couple of days ago for my coworkers. Everyone loved it. I will definitely make this again

Very good, yield was excessive, filled the springform pan, and had enough batter for 4 ramekins, and that was minus 2 oz of pumpkin which is sold in 15 or 30 oz cans lol
