  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). In a medium bowl, mix together the crushed gingersnap cookies, pecans, and butter. Press into the bottom, and about 1 inch up the sides of a 9 inch springform pan. Bake crust 10 minutes in the preheated oven. Set aside to cool.
  2. In a medium bowl, mix together the cream cheese, 1/2 cup sugar, and vanilla just until smooth. Mix in eggs one at a time, blending well after each. Set aside 1 cup of the mixture. Blend 1/4 cup sugar, pumpkin, cinnamon, and nutmeg into the remaining mixture.
  3. Spread the pumpkin flavored batter into the crust, and drop the plain batter by spoonfuls onto the top. Swirl with a knife to create a marbled effect.
  4. Bake 55 minutes in the preheated oven, or until filling is set. Run a knife around the edge of the pan. Allow to cool before removing pan rim. Chill for at least 4 hours before serving.

This is a great recipe, and i've made it twice, the first time it was OK, the second time was perfection. The 2nd time, I did what other have recommended and added more spice to the pumpkin chee...

I made this for Thanksgiving and it was a HUGE hit. It didn't last more than 24 hours. Which is saying a LOT since there were about 20 other desserts available. I didn't have any gingersnap c...

Okay, but I've had better. Maybe if I had read the reviews first and added more spice and pumpkin and had refrigerated the batter for better marbling effect and checked it way before the 55 minu...

This turned out perfect. No cracks and very pretty presentation. Everyone thought it was too sweet, maybe I slipped on the sugar. I put the water pan on the bottom rack as others suggested an...
