Ingredients

Spiced Cheesecake Filling:

· 8 oz cream cheese
· 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
· 2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
· ⅛ teaspoon ground nutmeg
· ⅛ teaspoon ground cardamom
· ⅛ teaspoon kosher salt
· 1 cup heavy whipping cream 

Graham Crust Layer Ingredients:

· ½ cup graham crackers (crushed)
· ¼ cup pecans (finely chopped)
· 3-4 tablespoons melted butter (can use olive oil)

Assembly Ingredients:

· Whipped Cream
· Graham crackers (crushed)
       · Optional: star anise (whole), cinnamon sticks, fresh rosemary 


Directions


  1. To make the crust layer, simply mix the crushed graham crackers and pecans in a large bowl. Add the melted butter, then stir until ingredients are evenly distributed. Set aside. 
  2. To make the cheesecake filling, beat the cream cheese until smooth in a stand mixer.
  3. Add in the Purecane™ Confectioners Sweetener, vanilla extract, ground cinnamon, nutmeg, cardamom, and salt. Mix until well-combined. Set aside. 
  4. In a separate mixing bowl, beat the heavy cream until stiff peaks (about 3-4 minutes). 
  5. Add half of the whipped cream into the cream cheese bowl, folding until smooth and well-combined. Repeat with the remaining whipped cream until a very smooth and silky texture. 
  6. To assemble, add 1 to 2 tablespoons of the graham crust mixture into a mini serving cup, then a generous dollop of the cheesecake filling. Top with more whipped cream and crushed graham crackers. Optional to garnish with a star anise and/or cinnamon stick and fresh rosemary!
