Ingredients
  

Crust

  • 8 graham cracker sheets crushed
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 1/2 tbsp sugar
  • 4 tbsp unsalted butter melted

Cheesecake

  • 16 oz cream cheese room temperature
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1 tsp almond extract

Pumpkin swirl

  • 1/3 cup canned pumpkin puree
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp ground allspice
  • 2 tsp all purpose flour

Instructions
 

  • Begin by preheating the oven to 300 degrees F.
  • Using a food processor or a bag and rolling pin, crush the graham crackers until they are fine crumbs. Mix together with the unsalted butter, cinnamon, and sugar until the crumbs are moist. They should be a sand-like texture.
  • Place cupcake liners in the muffin pan. Then, spoon the crumb mixture into the bottom of each cupcake liner and press down firmly. Set aside.
  • Add room temperature cream to the bowl of a stand mixer and mix until smooth.
  • Add in the powdered sugar and almond extract to the cream cheese and beat for 2 minutes.
  • Then, add the egg whites one at a time, mixing on low until fully incorporated. However, take care not to overbeat the mixture.
  • Divide the cheesecake mixture in half and set aside one of the halves. Using half of the mixture, divide it among the muffin cups.
  • To make the pumpkin swirl, mix together the pumpkin puree, cinnamon, allspice, and flour together in a small bowl. Add ¼ cup cheesecake mixture to the pumpkin swirl.
  • Spoon ½ tablespoon of the pumpkin swirl mixture to each muffin pan.
  • Add the remaining cheesecake mixture to the muffin pan on top of the pumpkin swirl mixture.
  • Finally, add the remaining pumpkin swirl on top of each individual cheesecake.
  • Using a toothpick, swirl through each individual cheesecake until you get a nice swirl.
  • Place in oven and bake for 25-30 minutes.
