“Salted Caramel Pumpkin Cheesecake”
1 1/2 c. graham cracker crumbs
2 T. granulated sugar
1/3 c. butter, melted
24 oz. cream cheese, softened
1 1/2 c. light brown sugar, packed
1 1/2 c. pumpkin puree
3 1/2 T. all-purpose flour
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp. ground nutmeg
1/6 tsp. ground ginger
4 eggs (room temperature)
salted caramel sauce (recipe below)
Preheat oven to 350. Mix the graham cracker crumbs and sugar together. Pour melted butter over the crumbs and stir until moistened. Press the mixture in the bottom of a 9-inch springform pan. Bake for 8-9 minutes. Remove from the oven and set aside.
Reduce oven temperature to 325. In a large bowl, beat together the cream cheese and brown sugar until smooth. Stir in the pumpkin, flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger. Break the eggs into a small bowl and lightly beat with a fork. Add the eggs to the cream cheese mixture and stir just until well combined. Don’t overbeat the mixture, or the cheesecake may crack. Pour on top of the graham cracker crust. Bake at 325 for 1 hour. At the end of the hour, turn off the oven and leave the oven door shut for another hour and a half before opening the oven door. The long cooling period will help minimize the cracks. Remove the cheesecake from the oven and let cool completely. Serve with Salted Caramel Sauce and whipped cream.
(for the Easy Salted Caramel Sauce)
1 c. brown sugar
1 c. butter
1/4 c. corn syrup
2 T. vanilla
up to 1 c. heavy cream
Melt the butter, brown sugar, corn syrup and vanilla over medium heat and bring to a boil, stirring continuously. Reduce heat and let boil for 3-4 minutes until thickened. Allow to cool to a warm temperature. Add cream until desired consistency is reached. As the caramel cools, it will thicken more. Keep that in mind when adding the cream.
