Pumpkin Cheesecake

Pumpkin Cheesecake Made With Chobani

1½ cups graham cracker crumbs
¾ cup finely chopped pecans
6 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
½ teaspoon fine salt, divided
2 (8-oz.) packages cream cheese
1 cup sugar
1½ cup canned pumpkin puree
1 cup Vanilla Chobani Greek Yogurt
3 tbsp praline liquor or rum (optional)
1 tbsp plus ½ teaspoon pumpkin spice
1 tbsp cornstarch
2 tsp vanilla extract
4 eggs

Directions

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.
Whisk the graham cracker crumbs, pecans and half of the salt together in a bowl to make a moist mixture. (If you can’t press it together into clumps, add a few drops of water.)
Coat the inside of a 9” springform pan with non-stick spray. Press the crumb mixture into bottom of the pan and an inch up the sides in an even layer.
Bake the crust until lightly browned, about 10 minutes. Let cool.
Meanwhile, combine the cream cheese and sugar in a bowl and whip with a handheld mixer until well combined and creamy. Add the pumpkin puree, Chobani, rum, pumpkin spice, cornstarch, vanilla, eggs and remaining salt and continue to mix until smooth.
Pour the cream cheese batter into the cooled crust and bake until the edges are set but the center is still slightly wobbly.
Turn the oven off, open the door briefly to let out some of the heat, and let cheesecake sit in the residual heat for 1 hour. Chill in the refrigerator for at least 3 hours (preferably overnight) before serving.
