How to Make Sweet Potato Cheesecake

Step-by-Step

  1. Stir flour, 1/2 cup butter, 1/4 cup sugar, 1/2 tsp. cinnamon and the egg yolk mixture to form a ball. Pat about 2/3rds of the dough on bottom only of 10 inch springform pan (with side removed) to make bottom crust 1/8 inch thick.
  2. Bake at 400 degrees for 8-10 minutes or until crust just begins to brown around edge.
  3. Reduce oven temperature to 300 degrees.
  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.
  10. Pour very hot water into larger pan to 1/3 rd the height of springform pan. Bake 1 hour 30 minutes or until center is set, adding very hot water to larger pan as needed.
  11. Pecan Crumb Topping:
    Mix flour, brown sugar, butter and cinnamon in small bowl until crumbly. Stir in pecans.
