Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 325°F.
  2. Use 12 large pieces of aluminum foil to cover bottom and sides of 9-inch springform pan. (This technique will reduce leaks when using a water bath.)
  3. Add gingersnap cookies and walnuts to WildSide+ jar. Secure lid, select Speed 1, and run for 5 seconds.
  4. Add butter, water, and cinnamon to jar and secure lid. Select Speed 1, and run for 10 seconds.
  5. Press crust evenly into spring-form pan along bottom and up sides about 1 inch.
  6. Clean WildSide+ jar, and add pumpkin, eggs, Neufchâtel cheese, cream cheese, sugar, vanilla, salt, and pumpkin pie spice to jar. Secure lid and select "Batter" or blend on Medium Low (speed 3 or 4) for 30 seconds. Pour filling over crust.
  7. Place spring-form pan inside of larger pan that is 23 inches deep. Pour approximately 1 inch of boiling water into larger pan.
  8. Carefully place pan in oven, and bake for 90 minutes. (The center of cheesecake will jiggle but will complete cooking during the cooling process.)
  9. Cool cheesecake completely, and then place in refrigerator until sufficiently chilled, about 1012 hours.
  10. Serve with your favorite whipped cream or caramel topping.

    Exactly what is the amount of a "package" of Neufchatel cheese? Since I make my own cheese, "package" isn’t enough information. Ditto cream cheese.

    It is a French cheese similar to cream cheese but with a lower fat content.
