Ingredients

Crust Ingredients

1 1/3 c unbleached white flour

1/2 c brown sugar

8 tbsp butter (softened)

3/4 c chopped pecans (optional)

Filling Ingredients

8oz cream cheese, softened

3/4 c sugar

1/2 c pumpkin purée

2 eggs, slightly beaten

1 1/2 tsp cinnamon

1 tsp allspice

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degree F.

In a food processor, combine crust ingredients and pulse 2 to 3 times until mixture is crumbly. Reserve 2/3 c of the mixture for topping. Press remaining mixture evenly into the bottom of an 8×11 baking dish. Bake at 350 degree F for 15 minutes. Cool slightly.

In a medium bowl, combine filling ingredients. Using an electric mixer at medium speed, blend until mixture is smooth. Pour mixture over baked crust. Sprinkle with remaining crust topping. Bake at 350 degrees F for 30-35 minutes or until firm.
