A fall favorite in sweet form.
Serves 12 | 


2 cups crushed vanilla wafers
1/3 cup finely chopped pecans
3 tablespoons brown sugar, firmly packed
1 stick butter, melted
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
16 oz. Neufchatel cheese
1 cup pumpkin, canned, solid-pack
1/2 cup sour cream
1/8 teaspoon ginger, ground
1/8 teaspoon cinnamon, ground
4 eggs
Whipped topping, for garnish


  1. Preheat oven to 350° F.
  2. In a medium bowl, mix together vanilla wafers, pecans, brown sugar and butter. Press wafer mixture into the bottom and 2 inches up sides of a 9-inch springform pan.
  3. In a large bowl, beat sugar and cheese on medium speed with an electric mixer until well-blended. Add pumpkin, sour cream, ginger and cinnamon; mix well. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating on low speed after each addition just until blended.
