Cuisine: American
Recipe type: Cake
  • 3 8-oz. blocks cream cheese, softened
  • 1 15-oz. can pumpkin purée
  • 4 large eggs
  • ¾ c. sugar
  • ½ c. light brown sugar
  • ¼ c. sour cream
  • 2 tsp. pure vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp. all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
  • ½ tsp. cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp. kosher salt
  • 24 whole oreos
  • 6 tbsp. melted butter
  • ¼ c. semisweet chocolate chips, melted
  • ¼ c. Caramel
  • whipped cream or Cool Whip
  1. Preheat oven to 350º and position an oven rack in the middle of the oven.
  2. Make cheesecake: In a large bowl using a hand mixer or in the bowl of a stand mixer using the paddle attachment, beat cream cheese until smooth. Add pumpkin purée, eggs, sugars, sour cream, vanilla, flour, pumpkin pie spice, cinnamon, and a generous pinch of salt and beat until combined and no clumps remain. Set aside.
  3. Make crust: In a large Ziploc bag or a food processor fitted with a metal blade, crush or blend Oreos until fine crumbs form. Transfer to a bowl and pour in melted butter. Stir until crumbs are completely coated and moist.
  4. Coat a 9" springform pan with cooking spray and press Oreo mixture into pan and ⅓ of the way up the sides, packing tightly. Pour cheesecake filling over crust.
  5. Place springform pan on a baking sheet (this will help catch any butter leaking from the crust since we're not pre-baking it) and bake until cheesecake is slightly jiggly in the center, 1 hour to 1 hour 15 minutes.
  6. (Cheesecakes tend to crack if you don't use a water bath. If you don't want to use one, bake as directed. If you do want to use a water bath, double wrap the outside of the pan in aluminum foil and place in a baking dish. Place on oven rack and pour in enough boiling water to reach halfway up the pan. Bake as directed.)
  7. If not using a water bath: Remove pan from oven and run a knife around the inside of the pan to release the cheesecake. Let cool 1 hour on a wire rack, then refrigerate until totally chilled, at least 4 hours and up to overnight.
  8. If using a water bath: Turn oven off, prop open oven door, and let cheesecake cool in oven, 1 hour. Remove pan from water and unwrap foil. Refrigerate cheesecake until totally chilled, at least 4 hours and up to overnight.
  9. When ready to serve, drizzle cheesecake with melted chocolate and caramel. Serve with whipped cream or Cool Whip, if desired.
