Fall Fruits Festival - Pumpkin




Today is Tuesday. Day two of Lisa's Fall Fruits Festival. And today's fruit is...pumpkin. I guess most people only think of carving a pumpkin around this time of year. Or pumpkin pie. Here's a little something different for the pumpkin in your life. :)


Pumpkin Cheesecake Deluxe



Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup chopped pecans, toasted
  • 32 gingersnap cookies, coarsely crushed
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 6 tablespoons butter, melted
  • FILLING:
  • 3 packages (8 ounces each) cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1-1/2 cups canned pumpkin
  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 3 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 4 eggs, lightly beaten
  • Sweetened whipped cream, optional
  • Pecan brittle, optional

Directions

  • Place a greased 9-in. springform pan on a double thickness of heavy-duty foil; securely wrap foil around pan. Place pecans in a food processor; cover and process until ground. Add gingersnaps, brown sugar and butter; cover and pulse until blended. Press onto the bottom and 2 in. up the sides of prepared pan; set aside.
  • In a large bowl, beat cream cheese and brown sugar until smooth. Beat in the pumpkin, cream, syrup, vanilla and spices. Add eggs; beat on low speed just until combined. Pour into crust. Place springform pan in a large baking pan; add 1 in. of hot water to larger pan.
  • Bake at 325° for 60-70 minutes or until center is just set and top appears dull. Remove pan from water bath. Cool on wire rack for 10 minutes. Carefully run a knife around edge of pan to loosen; cool 1 hour longer. Chill overnight.
  • Remove sides of pan. Garnish with whipped cream and pecan brittle if desired. Yield: 12 servings.


Well, double the yum in this one. :) Don't forget to go check out what Lisa has linked up.

Pumpkin cheesecake has become a fall tradition around here. My dad usually makes the Thanksgiving desserts and this is one of his specialties.
