Updated September 2, 2010

Ingredients

  • 1 cup finely crushed shortbread cookies (about 10 cookies)
  • 3 tablespoons packed brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons butter or margarine, melted
  • 5 packages (8 ounces each) cream cheese, softened
  • 1 1/4 cups granulated sugar
  • 1/3 cup whipping (heavy) cream
  • 1 tablespoon rum extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 3 eggs

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 325°F. Mix crushed cookies, brown sugar and butter. Press firmly in bottom of ungreased springform pan, 9x3 inches.
  • 2
    In large bowl, beat cream cheese, granulated sugar, whipping cream, rum extract, cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg with electric mixer on medium speed about 1 minute or until smooth. Beat in eggs on low speed until well blended. Pour over crust; smooth top.
  • 3
    Bake 1 hour 15 minutes to 1 hour 25 minutes. Turn off oven; leave cheesecake in oven 30 minutes. Remove from oven and cool in pan on wire rack away from drafts 30 minutes.
  • 4
    Without releasing or removing side of pan, run metal spatula carefully along side of cheesecake to loosen. Refrigerate uncovered about 3 hours or until chilled; cover and continue refrigerating at least 9 hours but no longer than 48 hours.
  • 5
    Run metal spatula along side of cheesecake to loosen again; remove side of pan. Store cheesecake covered in refrigerator.

  • After baking, the cheesecake may not appear to be done; if a small area in the center seems soft, it will become firm as the cheesecake cools. Do not insert a knife to test for doneness because the hole could cause the cheesecake to crack.
  • Top cheesecake with purchased caramel topping and garnished with toasted pecan halves.
