We took the pumpkin out of the pie and baked it into a rich and creamy cheesecake; it's an especially memorable ending to a holiday meal.

Ingredients

For the Crust
For the Filling

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees, with rack in center. Assemble a 9-inch nonstick springform pan, with the raised side of the bottom part facing up.

    Advertisement
  • Make the crust: In a medium bowl, mix cracker crumbs, sugar, and butter until moistened; press firmly into bottom of pan. Bake until golden around edges, 10 to 12 minutes.

  • Make the filling: With an electric mixer, beat cream cheese and sugar on low speed until smooth; mix in flour (do not overmix). Add pumpkin puree, pie spice, vanilla, and salt; mix just until smooth. Add eggs one at a time, mixing until each is incorporated before adding the next.

  • Place springform pan on a rimmed baking sheet. Pour filling into springform, and gently smooth top. Transfer to oven; reduce oven heat to 300 degrees. Bake 45 minutes without opening the oven. Turn off oven; to prevent the top from cracking, let cheesecake stay in oven 2 hours more (without opening).

  • Remove from oven; cool completely. Cover with plastic wrap; refrigerate until firm, at least 4 hours. Unmold before serving.

Cook's Notes

To make the crumbs for the crust, pulse graham crackers in a food processor until finely ground. Or, if you prefer, substitute the same amount of packaged graham-cracker crumbs.

Do not follow this recipe. The bake time is too short and/or the temp is too low. I added an additional 20 minutes to the bake time at 300 degrees, and like many other users warn, its still raw in the middle and I wound up with a big crack. So disappointing.

I followed recipe to the T, only sprayed the springform with pam first. I used gingersnaps for crust with 6tbsp butter and 1 cup sugar because the snaps were less sweet than I wanted...overall perfect instructions. I did 45mins, but he have a cast iron plate we put in our oven that regulates the temp very well, so no need for extra time. I had zero cracks! It came out perfectly and this was the first cheesecake I have ever baked. I read the comments for advice beforehand so, thank you ladies!

I make this cheesecake at least once a year, especially for Thanksgiving. It's always a hit, and it's perfect to make a day or two ahead of time. I like to substitute different cookies for the crust sometimes--ginger snaps are great. Depending on the cookies I use, I'll cut down the sugar this recipe calls for or omit it altogether. It's also very easy to make this cheesecake gluten free; I just swap out the regular flour for an all-purpose gf flour mix like Cup4Cup and use gf cookies. Delicious, and no one would ever know it's gluten free!

I am not good at baking, but when I found this recipe I decided to give it a try. I had roasted my pumpkin earlier and frozen it. Then I made my own pumpkin spice, because where I live it is hard to get anything other than canned pumpkin puree. I wanted to see if I could succeed in this cheesecake for our annual family Christmas lunch. (I had bread pudding ingredients ready just in case...) I made the cheesecake 3 days in advance and it turned out perfect!! Everyone loved it, and it was so easy to make. I will most certainly do it for next year as well.

This was the best Cheesecake ever! My family loved it and my friend (who does not eat sweets) asked to take some home with him. That being said I did change a few things. 1. I did not add the eggs. 2. I did not use the Pumpkin Spice mix. I used 2 tablespoons of cinnamon and 1 tablespoon of Ginger and 1 teaspoon of Cloves. 3. I used Ginger Snaps for my crust. The hardest part of this is not to open the oven, for almost 3 hours! I wanted to check my Cheesecake so bad! But I had control and it was well worth the wait. We topped the Pumpkin cheesecake with "Whip Cream in a Mason Jar" and crushed pistachios.

The center of my cheesecake was runny and undercooked, despite my following the directions exactly. (and the fact that my oven actually runs a bit hot.) My ingredients were room temperature, so that's not the problem. Very disappointing. You can't really check a cheesecake for doneness, of course. I can't recommend this recipe.

This cheesecake is delicious and came together nicely. I had no cracks, and I didn't use a water bath. I had one small jelly-like section, approximately 1" and slightly off-center. I'd change two things in the above recipe: 1. I couldn't get the graham cracker crust to come together using only 4 tablespoons of unsalted butter. I had to use the whole stick (8 tablespoons). 2. I wouldn't use plastic wrap in the fridge. Condensation formed, pulling the wrap down and onto the face of the cake.

I made this delicious pie last week, it turned out perfect! I did everything Martha did, except I wrapped springform pan with foil and placed in water bath. I also increased the cooking time to 47 minutes. I did keep turning the light on and looking every so often. One thing I think is very important is for the oven to be preheated to 350 degrees, then turned down to 300 when you place the pie in.

Made this yesterday. Read over other people's comments. I adjusted baking time...increased to 1 hour because of other people saying that 45 min it still wasnt cooked in middle. Mine still wasnt done. Didnt hold together when removed from pan. Crust was very thin almost nonexistent. I have a new oven temp is dead on accurate. I would either bake at higher temp for an hour or bake atleast 1 1/2 hours next time. Also I would double the crust. The flavor was excellent! !!!

We low carb as much as possible and instead of the graham cracker crust, we made it out of a package of Sugar Free Murrays Shortbread cookies which additionally are kosher. You still crush the cookies as usual and use melted butter to form a crust. I have another marvelous lemon cheesecake recipe and just happened to see a can of pumpkin while dreaming of how to make a different cheesecake, thanks Martha, Bracha Sarah

This cheesecake is amazingly delicious!! I had a problem though with it being runny in the middle with only 45 minutes baking time. I left it in the oven (turned off) according to the recipe for 2 hrs, and it didn't set. I ended up turning the oven back on and baking it for another 20 minutes. The result was a little overbaked in my opinion, but my guests loved it. Has anyone else had the same happen? I am making it for Thanksgiving dinner and will bake it this time for an hour.

To follow - using a water bathh and wrapping the springform pan with tinfoil to avoid water leaks will help avoid cracking. And don't open that oven!!! :)

First off - as a Martha Stewart recipe I cannot believe Bain Marie was not mentioned AT ALL. Shame on you Martha. Here's the deal - all ingredients should be at room temp. Don't use a mixer any further than the cream cheese and sugar. All subsequent mixings should be *by hand*. And do not over mix. Now - to avoid cracks, you need to bake a cheesecake in a bain marie, which is basically a water bath. You need to bake the cake in a separate pan/dish with a small (1/2 - 1") of water in it.

A BIG hit at Thanksgiving, especially the crust! I used 1.5 cups of ginger snap cookies. I successfully cooked and cooled the cheesecake without any cracks, however, after refrigeration a few appeared. I recommend not wrapping it in the fridge to avoid condensation and letting it cool completely (for 4-6 hours after the 2 hours in the oven). For a quick tip on repairing cracks, I found this video useful and it worked! http://www.ehow.com/video_2332642_repairing-cracks-cheesecake.html

I made this as a compromise to my new husband, as my family does not like pumpkin pie. It was a big hit. I had just a couple of issues. I made sure not to overwork the batter, and the cake was perfect when I took it out of the oven. However, it cracked after it was in the fridge for a couple of hours. I put it into the fridge immediately after I took it out of the oven, and since it was still warm, this created condensation on the plastic wrap, which dripped down and mottled the coloring.

I've made this twice and it's been a big hit taste-wise. The first time, I thought it was slightly underdone, but it tasted great and only had a slight crack. The second time, I cooked it 5 minutes longer and I had massive cracks. I didn't open the oven and I thought that I mixed it the right amount. My young son helped me though, and maybe we overworked the batter. I love the recipe, but want to be able to make it without a crack!

for my personal taste, next time i make this i would double the crust and bake the cake for 1 to 1 1/2 hrs. my cake was a little too pudding-esq towards the center, but towards the last 1/3 it tasted soooo good, it had the perfect cheesecake texture and taste (also no cracks). so i think baking it a little longer and more crust would result in the ultimate, perfect cheesecake :)
