Ingredients
  • 2 TB unsalted butter melted
  • ¼ teaspoon table salt
  • 1 cup graham cracker crumbs
  • 8 ounces light cream cheese softened (approximately 1 cup)
  • 1 cup plain canned pumpkin not pumpkin pie filling
  • ¼ cup dark brown sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 325.
  2. Line a standard-sized cupcake pan with 12 liners. In a small bowl, toss together melted butter, salt and graham crumbs. Use a tablespoon measure to spoon 1 heaping TB crumb mixture into each liner. Press down with back of spoon to flatten. Bake crusts for 5 minutes or until lightly browned.
  3. Combine cream cheese, pumpkin, brown sugar, eggs and pumpkin pie spice in a medium bowl. Beat on high with mixer for 2-3 minutes or until smooth. Spoon batter evenly into cups and bake for 20-25 minute or until set. Serve warm, room temperature or chilled. Cheesecakes may be made up to 4 days before serving.
Recipe Notes

If you can’t find graham cracker crumbs in your local store (or want to make your own). Place 5 whole graham cracker sheets in a medium zippered-storage baggie. Use the bottom of a glass measuring cup to crush thoroughly. A batter dispenser can make quick work of spooning the filling into the cups.
