  • Cooking Time: 1 hour, 15 minutes
  • Servings: 16
  • Preparation Time: 20 minutes

Ingredients

  • Ingredients
  • 1 Recipe For Crust:
  • 1 3/4 cups (about 1 and 1/2 sleeves) shortbread cookies, crushed (I use Lorna Doone)
  • 2-3 tablespoons butter or margarine, melted
  • 1 Recipe For Cheesecake:
  • 3 packages (8 oz. each) cream cheese, softened
  • 1 1/4 cups packed brown sugar
  • 1 can (15-oz.) LIBBY'S 100% Pure Pumpkin

  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 cup crushed toffee candies, (about 25 to 30) (note: It's easier to just buy a package of toffee bits. They should be located next to the chocolate chips and nuts at your local grocery store.)
  • 1 Recipe For Topping:
  • 1 cup (8 oz. container) sour cream, at room temperature
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract (I prefer a few dashes of Amaretto)
  • Caramel ice cream topping

Directions

  • irections

  • FOR TOPPING
  • COMBINE sour cream, granulated sugar and vanilla extract in small bowl; mix well. Spread over warm cheesecake.
  • BAKE for 8 minutes. Cool completely in pan on wire rack. Refrigerate for several hours or overnight. Remove side of springform pan. Drizzle with caramel topping before serving.

Notes

I found this in a food community on livejournal. I attempted to make this once at Thanksgiving with disastrous results. It came out perfectly the second time around!
