Yield: 16-18 servings
Prep time: 45 minutes
Baking time: 75-85 minutes
Difficulty Level: Moderate

• 1-1/2 cups gingersnap crumbs (about 8 ounces)
• 1/3 cup butter, melted

• 4 (8-ounce) containers Horizon Organic® cream cheese, room temperature
• 3/4 cup sugar, divided
• 1/4 cup flour
• 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
• 4 large Horizon Organic eggs
• 1/2 cup Horizon Organic lowfat eggnog
• 1 (16-ounce) can pumpkin purée (not pumpkin pie filling)
• 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice

Preheat oven to 350°F.

In a small bowl combine cookie crumbs and butter. Press mixture into the bottom and 1 inch up the sides of a 9-inch springform pan. Bake for 10 minutes. Remove and cool.

In the bowl of a stand mixer combine cream cheese, 1/2 cup sugar, flour and vanilla until blended. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Remove 2 cups batter, place it in a small bowl and whisk in eggnog. Chill eggnog mixture.

Add 1/4 cup sugar, pumpkin and spices to the remaining batter. Mix just until incorporated.

Alternately layer pumpkin and eggnog batters over the gingersnap crust, beginning and ending with pumpkin. Gently swirl a knife through the layers once or twice to create a marbled effect.

Bake for 60-75 minutes. Cheesecake is done when sides are firm and center jiggles slightly. Cool on a rack. Remove sides, gently cover with plastic and chill before serving. Cheesecake can be refrigerated up to 4 days. Bring to room temperature before serving.
