1 cup chopped pecans

2/3 cup firmly packed brown sugar

1/2 cup melted butter

1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon

4 packages (8 oz. each) softened cream cheese

1 cup sugar

3 tbsp. flour

1 cup sour cream

1 cup canned pumpkin

1 tbsp. pumpkin pie spice

1 tsp. vanilla

4 eggs

Instructions

Preheat oven to 325°F. Line a 13” x 9” baking pan with foil, with ends extending over sides of pan.

For crust, combine graham cracker crumbs, nuts, sugar, butter and cinnamon; mix well. Firmly press 3 cups of crust mixture onto bottom of a baking pan. Set aside remaining 1 cup while preparing cheesecake.

For cheesecake, mix cream cheese, sugar and flour in large bowl with electric mixer on medium speed until blended, about 2 minutes. While mixing, add sour cream, pumpkin, pumpkin pie spice and vanilla until well blended. Add eggs, one at a time, mixing on low speed until just blended. Fold in cranberries. Pour cheesecake batter over crust.

Sprinkle remaining crust mixture over top of cheesecake.

Bake 40 – 45 minutes or until center is almost set. Cool completely on wire rack.

Refrigerate 4 hours or overnight. Lift cheesecake from pan, using foil edges. Cut into 16 pieces. Store leftover cheesecake in refrigerator.
