    1 cup finely chopped pecans
    3/4 cup graham cracker crumbs
    1/3 c. butter, melted
    1/4 c. sugar

    4-8oz. pkg. cream cheese (softened)
    1 cup sugar
    2 tsp. vanilla
    4 eggs
    3/4 c. sour cream
    1 can pumpkin
    cinnamon, allspice, nutmeg (about 1 tsp each) I add a tad more cinnamon

    Combine pecans, cracker crumbs, butter and sugar. I use food processor. Mix well and press into 9" springform pan. Bake for 10-15 min at 350 degrees until just beginning to brown . Remove and set aside.

    Combine cream cheese, sugar and vanilla and beat on high speed until creamy. Beat in eggs one at a time. Add sour cream and pumpkin and blend on low speed. Add spices and mix well.

    Pour into crust and bake at 350 degrees for 60-70 min or until center is set. Turn off oven. Leave door slightly ajar and let cool in over for at least 1 hour. Remove from oven. Cool completely and chill for at least four hours.
