Ingredients

How to make it

  • In a large bowl, combine the crust ingredients and stir to mix well. Press crumb crust into bottom and 1 inch up sides of a butteded 10 1/2-inch springform pan. Bake crust in a 350 degree oven, 8-10 minutes until just starting to deepen in color. Remove from oven and set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine cream cheese and butter; beat with an electric mixwer until smooth. Beat in sugar, scraping bowl occasionally. Add mashed sweet potatoes; beat to combine. Add nutmeg and cinnamon. Add flavoring of your choice and vanilla. Mix until thoroughly combined and smooth. Add eggs, 1 at a time, mixing just until combined after each.
  • Pour batter into prepared crust. Bake in a 350 degree oven 20 minutes; reduce oven temperature to 300 degrees and continue baking 35 minutes more. Reduce oven temperature again to 250 degrees and continue baking 20-30 minutes more until cheesecake is set around the edges and barely juggles at the center. Use a timer or the timer on your stove works great! Remove cheesecake from the oven and increase oven temperature to 350 degrees.
  • Meanwhile, for topping whisk together the sour cream, sugar, and flavoring. Carefully spread topping evenly over cheesecake. Bake for 5 additional minutes to just set the topping. Remove from oven and allow to cool 5 minutes. Run a thin-bladed knife around the edge of the pan and allow to cool completely. Cover and chill several hours. Remove from pan. Sprinkle with additional crumbs if desired. Make 16 servings.
  • Make-ahead tip: Prepare as directed and refrigerate, tightly wrapped in plastic wrap, for up to 48 hours.
