Homemade Pumpkin #Cheesecake #Recipe

My oldest son’s girlfriend loves pumpkin pie and loves cheesecake. It was her birthday earlier this week. He wanted to make her a pumpkin pie.  I wanted to try something different – pumpkin cheesecake. I found a recipe for Pumpkin Cheesecake on the Kraft site. I made a couple of minor changes – I used different spices and I didn’t use nuts or cloves. It’s really good. Check it out.


  • 38 NABISCO Ginger Snaps, finely crushed (about 1-1/2 cups)
  • 1/4 cup butter or margarine, melted
  • 4 pkg. (8 oz. each) PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese, softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 can (15 oz.) pumpkin
  • 1/2 tbsp. ginger
  • 1/2 tbsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 4 eggs


HEAT oven to 325°F.
MIX crumbs and butter; press onto bottom and 1 inch up side of 9-inch springform pan.
