  • 3/4 c. graham cracker crumbs
  • 3 tbsp. melted butter
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 2 tbsp. firmly packed brown sugar
  • 3 tbsp. chopped pecans (opt.)



  • 4 (8 oz.) cream cheese

  • sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 tbsp. flour
  • 1 (30 oz.) can pumpkin pie mix

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Grease 9 inch spring form pan or spray with non-stick spray. Combine crust ingredients and line sides and bottom of pan. Beat cream cheese in a large bowl until fluffy. Gradually add sugar. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Gradually add flour and pumpkin pie mix and blend well. Stir in nuts. Pour into crust-lined pan. Bake 1 hour and 45 minutes or until center feels firm when touched. Cool in pan on wire rack. Brush top with maple syrup. Cool completely. NOTE: To substitute canned pumpkin for pumpkin pie mix, use 1 (1 pound) can pumpkin, increase sugar to 1 1/2 cups, use 5 eggs instead of 3, 1/4 cup flour instead of 2 tablespoons and add 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice.
