  • 2 ounces (56g) melted butter

  • 24 ounces (452g) cream cheese, room temperature

  • 1 cup (247g) canned pumpkin

  • 1 teaspoon (3g) cinnamon

  • ½ teaspoon (1g) ginger

  • ½ teaspoon ground cloves

  • 1 1/3 cup (264g) sugar

  • 4 eggs

  • 1 teaspoon (4g) vanilla

  • 1 cup (227g) sour cream

Directions

  • Step 1

    Heat water to 176ºF/80ºC using Anova Precision Cooker. Heat oven to 350ºF.

    While water and oven heat, crush gingersnaps. Mix with melted butter and press into bottom of 9-inch springform pan. Press foil around bottom of springform pan and bake in oven 10 minutes.

  • Step 3

    While crust bakes, mix filling. Use stand mixer to mix cream cheese with pumpkin until smooth. Add spices, sugar, eggs (1 at a time), vanilla and sour cream. Mix until smooth. Pour filling into prepared crust. Seal top of pan with foil. Place pan into extra-large (2-gallon) zip-close plastic bag. Carefully immerse this into water to create vacuum seal in zip-close bag.
