Two-Tone Delight


October is a very fine month. Death brings bright splashes of color to deciduous trees, soft sweaters warm skin on chilly mornings, and squash grows fat and ripe. Today's recipe, Two-Tone Cheesecake, showcases the Sugar Pie Pumpkin. Unlike it's common counterpart, the Field Pumpkin, Sugar Pie Pumpkins are sweeter and more tender, better for eating than carving jack-o-lanterns.

Two-Tone Cheesecake

Crust:
  • 1 1/2 cups crushed cinnamon graham crackers
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup melted unsalted butter
Combine cracker crumbs and sugar. Incorporate the melted butter. Press into bottom and sides of a springform pan using your hands. Bake in a 375 degree oven for 7 minutes.

Cheesecake:
  • 3 8oz packages cream cheese, softened
  • 3/4 cup plus 2 tbs. granulated sugar
  • 3/4 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs, room temperature
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 8oz can pumpkin (or fresh pumpkin, baked and mashed)
  • cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, and cloves to taste
  • preheat oven to 350
Beat cream cheese and sugar until smooth. Mix in vanilla. Blend in eggs one at a time. Fold in the sour cream.

Remove 1 1/2 cups of this mixture and spread it on your graham-encrusted springform pan.

Add the pumpkin to the remaining cream cheese mixture. Add spices and mix together. As a rule of thumb, use more cinnamon than any of the other spices and use ginger the least. Add roughly equal amounts of nutmeg and cloves. Take it easy, and taste often until your tongue sings with joy.

Spread pumpkin mixture on top of cheesecake layer. To prevent cracking, place your springform pan in a water bath prior to baking. Bake for 1 hour (the center should be set, but jiggle like Jello). Turn off oven and open door. Let cheesecake slowly cool for about 20 minutes before removing from oven. This will also prevent cracking. Refrigerate several hours before serving.

The photo is lovely, but the taste is far finer. And the mouth feel is half the fun. Thank you for letting the family serve as culinary guinea pigs.
