I absolutely love making cheesecakes on special occasions and holidays. I even insist on cheesecake for my birthday. Now I do love a good homemade cake every now and then, but cheesecake is just so perfect and versatile. There’s hundreds of different ways to make cheesecake with different ad-ins toppings and crusts.

So to make a festive holiday cheesecake, I made this one with the inspiration of our favorite holiday treat, gingerbread. I aded delicious spices into the cheesecake filling and used a wonderful gingersnap cookie crust. This cheese is not only beautiful but also delicious.

To start this cheesecake, just grind up store-bought or leftover homemade gingersnap cookies in your food processor with a little melted butter for the crust. After everything is incorporated,  press the mixture into a 9 inch pie plate to form the piecrust.

Next combine the cream cheese, sour cream, eggs, sugar and spices in a large bowl. Then mix well, pour it in the pie crust pie crust and back at 325° for about an hour.

To save time, you could alternatively use a pre-made graham cracker crust. But taking a few minutes to make a homemade crust makes this pie so much better!   The combination of the spices in the cheesecake filling and the gingersnap crust are perfection. This cheesecake is sure to impress your friends and family.
