The Tyler Cooking Show - Pumpkin Cheesecake

Welcome to the latest edition of Tyler's Cooking Show! For Thanksgiving, Tyler and his mom made a pumpkin cheesecake for a family get-together. Ty's mom found the Cheesecake Factory recipe online.

First, he had to make the graham cracker crust.


  • 1-1/2 cups graham crumbs
  • 5 Tbsp. butter, melted
  • 1 Tbsp. sugar

Mix crust ingredients together, just till coated and crumbly. Press onto the bottom and 2/3 up the sides of an 8" springform pan. Bake for 5 min. at 350. Set aside.

Then it was time to make the filling.

  • 3- 8oz.pkgs. cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1 cup canned pumpkin
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp. nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp. allspice

Combine cheese, sugar and vanilla in large bowl, mix until smooth with an electric mixer. Add pumpkin eggs, and spices, beat till smooth and creamy.

Pour into the crust. Bake for 60-70 min. or till the top turns a bit darker. Remove from oven and allow to come to room temperature, then refrigerate. After it has thoroughly chilled, remove the pan sides and cut. Serve with whipped cream.

And here is the finished product!

Mmmm! Happy Thanksgiving!
