Directions:
Preheat oven to 325.
Mix ginger snaps, pecans and butter; press onto bottom and 2 inches up side of 9-inch springform pan.
Beat cream cheese, 3/4 cup of the sugar and vanilla with electric mixer on medium speed until well blended. Add eggs, one at a time, mixing on low speed after each addition just until blended. Reserve 1-1/2 cups of the plain batter. Stir remaining 1/4 cup sugar, pumpkin and spices onto remaining batter. Spoon 1/2 of the pumpkin batter over crust; top with spoonfuls of 1/2 of the reserved plain batter. Repeat layers. Cut through batters with knife several times for marble effect.

Bake for 55 minutes at 325 or until center is almost set if using a silver springform pan. (Or, bake at 300 for 55 minutes or until center is almost set if using a dark nonstick springform pan.) Loosen cake from side of pan; cool before removing rim of pan. Refrigerate 4 hours or overnight. Store leftover in refrigerator. Makes 12 servings.
