  4. Attach side to pan. Pat remaining dough about 1 inch up inside of pan.
  5. Beat sweet potatoes, 1 tbsp. butter, 1 tsp. cinnamon, 1 tsp. nutmeg and vanilla in medium bowl with electric mixer on low speed until blended; set aside.
  6. Beat cream cheese and 1 cup sugar at medium speed about 1 minute or until smooth.
  7. Beat in sweet potato mixture on low speed about 1 minute until blended.
  8. Beat in eggs, one at a time.
  9. Pour batter into springform pan.
    Place springform pan into larger pan.
