  1. For the crust:

  2. Line a 9-inch springform pan with parchment paper. In a medium mixing bowl stir together the gingersnap crumbs, sugar, butter & salt until combined.
  3. Transfer mixture to the prepared pan & shape into an even crust with a 1-inch raised edge. Refrigerate as you prepare the filling.
  4. For the filling:
  5. Preheat the oven to 425(f) degrees. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat together the cream cheese, brown sugar & flour until combined.
  6. Add the eggs & egg yolks one at a time, scraping down the sides of the bowl after each addition.
  7. Add the Farmer's Market Organic Pumpkin Puree, bourbon, vanilla, ginger, cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg & salt. Beat until smooth, about 1 minute.

  8. Transfer filling to prepared pan & tap gently on the counter to eliminate any air bubbles. Bake for 10 minutes, reduce oven to 250(f) degrees & bake for an additional 45 to 50 minutes. The edges should be set & the center should have a little jiggle.
  9. Turn oven off & allow cheesecake to sit for an additional 15 minutes with the oven door closed. Remove from the oven & let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes before refrigerating for a minimum of 4 hours or overnight.
  10. When ready to serve, slice & top with a dollop of whipped cream. Drizzle with caramel sauce & garnish with pecans & enjoy!
