1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp. ground nutmeg
dash of ground cloves


Crust: mix ingredients and press into bottom and two inches up the side of a 9 inch spring form pan.


Set aside (you can put it into the fridge to help it stay formed while you mix the filling.)



Filling: beat cream cheese & 3/4 C. of the sugar and the vanilla w/ an electric mixer until well blended.


Add eggs, 1 at a time, mixing on low speed after each addition just until blended.


Reserve 1 1/2 C. of the plain batter.


Stir remaining 1/3 C. sugar, pumpkin, and spices into remaining batter. Spoon 1/2 of the pumpkin batter over crust, top w/ spoon fulls of 1/2 of the plain batter.


Repeat.


Cut through batters w/ a butter knife several times for a marble effect.


Bake @ 325 for 55 minutes until center is almost set. (bake @ 300 if the pan is dark/not silver).


Loosen cake from sides of pan; let the cheesecake cool before actually removing the side of the pan though.


Refrigerate for 4 hours.
