BRANDIED PUMPKIN CHEESECAKE

When we are in the month of October we have a big festival coming up Halloween.

Halloween is an annual holiday celebrated each year on October 31. It originated with the ancient Celtic festival of Samhain when people would light bonfires and wear costumes to ward off ghosts. … The evening before was known as All Hallows Eve, and later Halloween and for that, I am going to post the recipe of BRANDIED PUMPKIN CHEESECAKE.

 

 

Crust:

 

  • 1-1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
  • 1/2 cup butter or margarine, melted
  • 1/4 cup sugar 
  • Filling:
  • 2 (250 g) package cream cheese at room temperature
  • 1 (125 g) package cream cheese at room temperature
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 4 medium eggs
  • 1 (14 oz.) can pumpkin (no spices added)
  • 2-1/2 tsp. ginger
  • 1 tbsp. cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp. nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp. cloves
  • 1/3 cup brandy
  • Whipped cream
  • Preserved ginger

 

For the crust, combine crumbs, sugar, and butter in a bowl and mix well.

 Press crumb mixture firmly into bottom of 10-inch spring

Form pan and 2 inches up sides. Bake in a moderate oven, 350 Degrees for 10 minutes.

 

For filling beat together cream cheese and sugar until light and fluffy.

Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition until smooth and creamy.

 Add pumpkin, ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and brandy, and mix until well blended.

 

Pour cheese mixture into crust and bake in a slow oven, 325 degrees, for 50 or 60 minutes, or until well risen.

Turn off heat and let cheesecake cool in oven.

When cold, decorate the top with whipped cream and sliced ginger.

BRANDIED PUMPKIN CHEESECAKE is ready to eat J
