How to Make WHITE CHOCOLATE PUMPKIN CHEESECAKE

Step-by-Step

    FOR THE CRUST - place cookies into a food processor and process until fine crumbs
    add the 2 tblsp. sugar and the 1/4 cup melted butter. process until combined. place into the bottom of a 9 inch spring form pan. set aside.
  2. FOR THE FILLING - place the cream cheese and 1 cup of sugar in food processor or mixture. process or blend until smooth. Add the pumpkin, melted white chocolate, eggs, cinnamon, nutmeg and vanilla. process or blend until smooth.
    pour into crust lined springform pan. then place springform pan on a shallow baking pan or cookie sheet.
    Bake for 55 minutes or until center appears nearly set when gently shaken. Remove, cool on wire rack 30 minutes
  3. FOR THE TOPPING - while the cake is cooling,place the almonds, sugar and melted butter in food processor. process until combined. Place evenly on a baking sheet and bake 10 to 12 minutes, stiring occassionally, until toasted. watch carefully so it doesn't burn
