  1. To make the Crust: Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  2. Wrap a double layer of WIDE heavy-duty aluminum foil around the outside of a 10-inch springform pan. (The idea is to make it watertight). This is very important or you will have a soggy crust.
  3. Combine the graham crackers, sugar, and cinnamon in a food processor.
  4. Process until the graham crackers are very finely ground.
  5. Drizzle the melted butter over.
  6. Pulse until the crumbs begin to stick together.
  7. Press the crumbs over the bottom (not the sides) of the prepared pan.
  8. Bake in the middle of the oven until the crust is slightly golden, about 10 minutes.
  9. Transfer to a wire rack and cool while preparing the filling.
  10. To make the Filling: Using an electric mixer, beat the cream cheese and sugar in a large bowl until smooth and fluffy.
  11. Beat the eggs one at a time.
  12. Add the pumpkin and the remaining ingredients.
  13. Beat just until mixed.
  14. Pour the filing into the prepared crust.
  15. Place the springform pan in a large roasting pan and add hot water to come halfway up the sides of the springform pan.
  16. To bake and serve: Bake the cheesecake until the filling is slightly puffed and softly set and the top is golden, about 1 1/2 hours.
  17. Transfer the cheesecake to a wire rack to cool.
  18. Cover and refrigerate the cake overnight.
  19. Use a knife to cut around the side of the pan to loosen the cheesecake.
  20. Release the pan sides, cut the cheesecake into wedges, and serve.
