1/2 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup canned pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie filling)
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
9" graham cracker crust
*Preheat oven to 325F. In large bowl combine softened cream cheese, sugar, and vanilla. Beat with electric mixer until smooth. Blend in eggs, one at a time. Remove one cup of batter and spread into bottom of graham cracker crust.
