Double Layer Pumpkin Cheesecake Recipe


For the Crust:
  • 1 3/4 cups graham cracker crumbs
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 1/3 cup butter, melted
For the Cheesecake:
  • 3 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup canned pumpkin puree
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves


  1. Preheat Oven and Prepare Crust:
    • Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C).
    • In a small bowl, mix together graham cracker crumbs, 1/4 cup sugar, and melted butter.
    • Press the mixture onto the bottom of a 9-inch springform pan to form the crust.
    • Bake for 10 minutes in the preheated oven. Remove from oven and set aside to cool.
  2. Make the Cheesecake Filling:
    • In a large bowl, combine cream cheese, 1 cup sugar, and vanilla. Beat until smooth.
    • Blend in eggs one at a time.
    • Remove 1 cup of cream cheese batter and spread into the bottom of the crust. Set aside.
  3. Add Pumpkin Layer:
    • To the remaining batter, add pumpkin puree, cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves. Stir gently until well blended.
    • Carefully spread the pumpkin layer over the plain cream cheese layer in the crust.
  4. Bake the Cheesecake:
    • Bake in the preheated oven for 35 to 40 minutes, or until center is almost set.
    • Allow to cool, then refrigerate for 3 hours or overnight. This will help the cheesecake to set and flavors to meld.
  5. Serve:
    • Before serving, you can garnish the cheesecake with whipped cream and a sprinkle of cinnamon or nutmeg for an extra touch.

Remember, cheesecakes can be a bit tricky, so don’t worry if you see some cracks on the surface; it’s all part of the charm! Also, for a smoother texture, ensure that all ingredients are at room temperature before you begin mixing. Enjoy your double layer pumpkin cheesecake!
