~ Pumpkin Ginger Cheesecake ~

~Crust~
4 T butter
3/4 cup graham cracker crumbs
1/2 cup crushed gingersnaps
1 T brown sugar
1 t cinnamon

~Filling~
1 cup heavy cream, chilled
24 oz cream cheese, softened
1 1/2 cups sugar
3 large eggs
1 1/2 cups mashed pumpkin
3/4 t ground cinnamon
3/4 t powdered ginger
3/8 t ground cloves
1/4 cup pecan halves

Preheat the oven to 325F.
For crust: Place the butter in a small saucepan and melt over moderate
heat. Mix the graham cracker crumbs, gingersnaps, brown sugar and
cinnamon in a medium bowl. Add the melted butter and mix together with
a fork. Line bottom and side of 10 inch springform pan with parchment
or wax paper. Spray with nonstick pan spray. Press the crumb mixture
into the bottom. For Filling: Pour the heavy cream into a medium bowl
and beat just until soft peaks form. Refrigerate. Beat the cream
cheese (in large bowl) with an electric mixer until fluffy. Gradually
add the sugar, beating well. Add the eggs one at a time, and beat the
mixture until it is fluffy and pale. Stir in the pumpkin, cinnamon,
ginger and cloves. Remove the whipped cream from the refrigerator and
whisk lightly to reblend. Using a spatula or flat spoon, fold the
whipped cream into the cream cheese-pumpkin mixture. Pour the mixture
into the prepared crust. Wrap one continuous sheet of aluminum foil
around the springform pan and press firmly. Put wrapped pan in a baking
pan and fill with hot water halfway up the spring from pan. Bake for
60 - 70 minutes. Cool the cheesecake to room temperature, then
refrigerate for at least 3 hours to chill thoroughly. Remove the
sides of the springform pan. Just before serving, place the pecan
halves on top of the cheesecake, in a ring around the edges,
to garnish.
