How to make it
- Prepare the crust: Preheat oven to 350F. Pulse pecans and graham crackers in a food processor until finely ground. Place in a medium bowl and stir in butter, sugar and salt.
- Press a spoonful of crumb mixture into the bottom of each mini cheesecake tin with the removeable bottoms. Bake until golden brown and slightly firm, 10 minutes. Don't overbake or the pecans will begin to burn. Let cool on wire rack. Reduce oven temperature to 325F.
- Prepare the cheesecake: Melt butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add carrots, 1/4c. sugar, and cood, stirring often, until carrots are soft, 4 minutes. Transfer with pan juices to a bowl, and let cool.
- Beat cream cheese and remaining 1/2c. sugar with a mixer on medium speed until fluffy, about 4 minutes. Add eggs, 1 at a time, scraping down sides of bowl as needed. Add carrots and pan juices, nutmeg, cinnamon, ginger, salt and vanilla, and beat until incorporated. Spoon on top of crusts to about 3/4 full.
- Bake until set, about 18 minutes; watch closely and pull out of the oven when the cheesecakes are set (touch the tops and make sure they're not jiggly, but firm).
- Transfer pans to a rack and let cool. Refrigerate until ready to frost.
- Prepare icing: Beat cream cheese and butter at medium speed with a mixer until smooth. Gradually add powdered sugar and vanilla, beating until smooth. Place a heaping teaspoonful on top of each cheesecake and spread gently to cover the tops.
