For the Filling:

  • 16 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup canned pumpkin puree
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • Pinch of salt

For the Topping:

  • 1 cup whipped cream
  • 1/4 cup chopped pecans (optional)
  • Caramel sauce (optional)


  1. Preheat the Oven:
    • Preheat your oven to 325°F (160°C).
  2. Prepare the Crust:
    • In a medium bowl, combine the graham cracker crumbs, sugar, and melted butter. Mix until the crumbs are evenly coated.
  3. Press into Pan:
    • Press the mixture firmly into the bottom of a 9-inch springform pan, creating an even crust.
  4. Bake the Crust:
    • Place the pan in the preheated oven and bake for 10 minutes. Remove and allow it to cool while preparing the filling.
  5. Prepare the Filling:
    • In a large mixing bowl, beat the softened cream cheese until smooth and creamy.
  6. Incorporate Pumpkin and Spices:
    • Add the pumpkin puree, sugar, eggs, vanilla extract, ground cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, ginger, and a pinch of salt. Beat until all ingredients are well incorporated and the mixture is smooth.
  7. Pour into the Crust:
    • Pour the pumpkin and cream cheese mixture over the graham cracker crust, spreading it evenly.
  8. Bake the Cheesecake:
    • Place the pan back in the oven and bake for about 55-60 minutes, or until the edges are set and the center slightly jiggles.
  9. Cool and Chill:
    • Allow the cheesecake to cool in the oven with the door ajar for about an hour. Then, transfer it to the refrigerator to chill for at least 4 hours or overnight.
  10. Add Whipped Cream and Toppings:
    • Once fully chilled, remove the cheesecake from the springform pan. Spread a layer of whipped cream over the top. Optionally, sprinkle with chopped pecans and drizzle with caramel sauce.
  11. Slice and Serve:
    • Use a sharp knife to slice the cheesecake into servings.
  12. Enjoy Your Luscious Pumpkin Cheesecake:
    • Serve chilled and savor the perfect harmony of creamy cream cheese and spiced pumpkin in this delectable dessert.
