Ingredients

Crust:

4 T Butter
3/4 C Crushed pecans
1/2 C Almond flour
1/4 t Ground ginger
1 T Brown sugar twin
1 t Cinnamon
Filling:

1 C Heavy cream, chilled
24 ozs Cream cheese, softened
1 1/2 C Splenda
3 Large eggs
1 1/2 C Mashed pumpkin
3/4 t Ground cinnamon
3/4 t Ground ginger
3/8 t Ground cloves
1/4 C Pecan halves

Directions

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.



To make the crust:



Place the butter in a small saucepan and melt over moderate heat.



Mix the pecan crumbs, almond flour, ginger, brown sugar twin and cinnamon in a medium bowl.



Add the melted butter and mix together with a fork.



Line bottom and side of 10-inch springform pan with parchment or wax paper. Spray with nonstick pan spray. Press the crumb mixture into the bottom.



Filling:



Pour the heavy cream into a medium bowl and beat just until soft peaks form. Refrigerate.



Beat the cream cheese (in large bowl) with an electric mixer until fluffy.



Gradually add the splenda, beating well. Add the eggs one at a time, and beat the mixture until it is fluffy and pale. Stir in the pumpkin, cinnamon, ginger and cloves. Remove the whipped cream from the refrigerator and whisk lightly to re-blend. Using a spatula or flat spoon, fold the whipped cream into the cream cheese-pumpkin mixture. Pour the mixture into the prepared crust.



Wrap one continuous sheet of aluminum foil around the springform pan and press firmly. Put wrapped pan in a baking pan and fill with hot water halfway up the spring from pan. Bake for 60 to 70 minutes.



Cool the cheesecake to room temperature, then refrigerate for at least 3 hours to chill thoroughly.



Remove the sides of the springform pan. Just before serving, place the pecan halves on top of the cheesecake, in a ring around the edges, to garnish.
