Instructions Cheesecake Filling:
- Preheat oven to 325F.
- In a stand mixer with a paddle attachment, beat together the cream cheese, brown sugar, and granulated sugar. Making sure to scrape down the bowl to ensure everything is properly mixed.
- Add one egg, and mix well. Add another egg and mix well again.
- In a medium-size bowl, whisk together the pumpkin puree, cornstarch, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Whisk until well combined.
- Add in the pumpkin mixture to cream cheese mixture. Beat together well.
- Mix in the evaporated milk and mix.
- Carefully pour the cheesecake filling over the prepared crust.
- Drizzle with chocolate syrup.
- Place the Springform pan in a water bath. The water should go up halfway up the outside of the springform pan.
- Bake for one hour. When baked the center will still move slightly when shaken.
- After the hour, turn off the oven, open the door and let the cheesecake sit in the oven for 1 hour.
- Let cool on a wire rack to cool. Let cool completely before covering to the top with foil. Place in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours to set. It’s best to leave overnight.
