How to Make Pumpkin Chai Cheesecake

Step-by-Step

  1. Heat oven to 300. Spray 9" sringform pan with cooking spray. Wrap foil around the pan to catch drips. In a small bowl, mix crust ingredients. Press mixture in the bottom of the pan.

  2. In large bowl beat cream cheese and sugar with an electric mixer on medium speed until light and fully. Beat in the eggs, one at a time, just until blended. Spoon 3 cups of mixture onto crust and spread evenly. To remaining mixture, add pumpkin, pumpkin spice and cardamom, mix with wire whisk until smooth. Spoon over mixture in pan.

Run small metal spatula around cheesecake. Turn off oven and open door at least 4" and let cheesecake remain in the oven for 30 minutes. Cool in pan on cooling rack 30 minutes. Cover loosely, refrigerate at least 6 hours but no longer that 24 hours
