1 ¼ cup sugar

½ cup sour cream

1 tsp vanilla

1 ½ cup pumpkin puree hand made or unsweetened canned

5 eggs

1 tsp cinnamon

½ tsp allspice

Cream cheese in a mixer until smooth.  Add sugar, and sour cream.  Mix until combined.  Add vanilla and eggs.  Mix to incorporate.  Beat 5 minutes on medium speed.  Add pumpkin and spices.  Pour into a parchment lined and greased 13" x 18" x1" sheet pan.  Bake in a 350* oven for 10 minutes.  Rotate 180* and lower oven to 325*.  Bake 10 minutes longer or until set in center.  The cheesecake should be a little jiggly in the center.  Remove from oven and run a knife between the cake and the side of the pan.  This will loosen the cake and prevent cracking.  Let cool.  Remove from pan when completely cooled and center is set.  Best to make cake the day before needed and let cool refrigerated over night.  Unmold the cake and cut into 24 equal sized squares.  Layer apple compote on top of one piece and place another cheesecake square on top.  Forming a sandwich.  Drizzle with caramel.  Enjoy!!!!!
