For the Cheesecake Layer

  • Add the softened cream cheese to the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. Add the granulated sugar, pumpkin puree, vanilla extract, and pumpkin pie spice. Mix on medium-low speed until well combined-- about 1 minute. Make sure to scrape down the sides of the bowl as needed.
  • With the mixer on low speed, add the eggs one at a time. Once all of the eggs have been incorporated, scrape down the sides of the bowl and then turn the mixer to medium speed and mix for another 10-15 seconds. This is just to make sure all of the ingredients are well incorporated!
