    Break tradition and forget the pie! Serve this cheesecake instead. OK, I like the pie too, no reason not to have both.;-)

    cinnamon whipped cream for garnish


    1. 1
      Place rack in center of oven.
    2. 2
      Preheat oven to 350°F.
    3. 3
      Make crust: Combine all crust ingredients in a bowl.
    4. 4
      Press onto bottom of 10 inch springform pan and bake for 10 minutes.
    5. 5
      Remove to cool.
    6. 6
      Make filling: Whisk together pumpkin, eggs, spices, salt and ¾ cup of the sugar.
    7. 7
      Cream together cream cheese and remaining sugar.
    8. 8
      Beat in cream, cornstarch and vanilla.
    9. 9
      Carefully beat in pumpkin mixture.
    10. 10
      Pour into crust. Lift pan 1 inch off counter and let drop (this breaks up any air bubbles in the batter that may contribute to cracking). Bake for 40-45 minutes, or until center is set. Run a thin, sharp knife around edge of pan to release crust (this too helps inhibit cracking).
    11. 11
      Let cool, covered loosely, overnight.
    12. 12
      Remove sides of pan and put on your prettiest serving platter.
    13. 13
      Garnish with cinnamon whipped cream and caramel sauce (if desired); dust top of cake lightly with more cinnamon.
    14. 14
      For cinnamon whipped cream: Beat cream until foamy. Beat in sugar and cinnamon until the cream holds soft peaks.
    15. 15
      Note: Although this cheesecake has never cracked for me, I know it has for others - but not to worry as the cinnamon whipped cream topping embellishes everything and the cheesecake is just gorgeous! ;-).

      This is the first time I have made cheesecake so this is a newbie review for it. My cheesecake cracked really bad but I think I overcooked it. My mother turned the oven down and we cooked it longer than advised. I treated it more like a cake and did the tooth pick test on it(waited for it to be mostly clean b4 pulling it.). I added a couple more table spoons of sugar to the batter and the whip cream so I think that is more of a "to taste" ingrediant. This is a receipe that I want to try again and again. It had an excellent taste. The whip cream was a perfect accompaniment. I did not drizzle caramel over it(time crunch) but will next time. Overall even with it overcooked (my fault) it was EXCELLENT!!!!

      Perfection! Nice cheesecake flavor, not overpowered by pumpkin. Wonderful with the cinnamon whipped cream and carmel sauce, do not skip! Only problem, I ate way too much of the cheesecake myself!
