  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Mix ginger snap crumbs, pecans and butter; press firmly onto bottom and 1 inch up side of 9-inch springform pan.
  2. Beat cream cheese, 3/4 cup of the sugar and the vanilla with electric mixer until well blended. Add eggs, one at a time, mixing on low speed after each addition just until blended. Remove 1-1/2 cups of the batter; place in small bowl. Stir remaining 1/4 cup sugar, the pumpkin and spices into remaining batter. Spoon half of the pumpkin batter into crust; top with spoonfuls of half of the reserved plain batter. Repeat layers. Cut through batters with knife several times for marble effect.
  3. Bake 55 min. or until center is almost set. Cool completely. Refrigerate 4 hours or overnight. Cut into 16 slices. Store leftover cheesecake in refrigerator.

Made this for thanksgiving and everyone was very suspicious about how this would taste and they ended up loving it! Will make this again for sure.

This was quite good but we thought it needed more spice. Would make again though.

I first saw this recipe a few years ago in an advertisement for Philly Cream Cheese and loved it! I used to make it annually for Thanksgiving and then lost the recipe! I was so excited to see it again here on Allrecipes! I think the spicy, flavorful crust made up of gingersnaps and pecans set this recipe above and beyond. So easy to make - so delicious!

Reduced cream cheese to 3 packages, came out fantastic. Didn't have a hand mixer so spun the cream cheese/sugar/egg mixture in the blender to whip out the tiny lumps. Worked perfectly. Came out creamy & smooth. I made this for Thanksgiving dinner with the BF's family & they raved that it looked like it came from a bakery. None leftover. Added a pecan topping of 1/4 C brown sugar, 1/3 C pecans, 2 TBS melted butter.

This is s great recipe I made it exactly as is except for on the fact that I didn't have a springform pan so I just use a regular graham cracker crust and I also made a gingersnap crust as the recipe directed it was very delicious look very pretty and overall crowdpleaser
