Pumpkin Toffee Cheesecake

Crust
1-3/4 cups (about 14-16) shortbread cookies, crushed
1 tablespoon butter, melted
Combine cookie crumbs and butter in small bowl. Press into bottom and 1 inch up the side of 9 inch springform pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 6-8 minutes. Do not allow to brown. Cool on wire rack for 10 minutes.

Cheesecake
24 ounces cream cheese, softened
1-1/4 cups packed brown sugar
1-15 ounce can of canned pumpkin
1-5 ounce can of evaporated milk
2 large eggs
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 cup (about 25-30) crushed toffee candies
Beat cream cheese and brown sugar in large mixer bowl until creamy. Add pumpkin, evaporated milk, eggs, cornstarch, and cinnamon; beat well. Pour into crust. Bake at 350 degrees for 60-65 minutes or until edge is set but center still moves slightly. Remove from oven; top with toffee candy pieces.

Topping
8 ounces sour cream, at room temperature
2 tablespoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
Caramel ice cream topping (optional, but not really optional!)
Combine sour cream, sugar, and vanilla extract in a small bowl; mix well. Spread over warm cheesecake. Bake at 350 degrees for 8 minutes.

Cool cheescake completely in pan on wire rack. Refrigerate for several hours or overnight. Remove side of springform pan. Drizzle with caramel topping before serving.
