Marbled Pumpkin Cheesecake

1 1/2 cup crushed gingersnap cookies
1/3 cup butter, melted
3/4 cup sugar, divided
3 eggs
3/4 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 cup finely chopped pecans
2 8-oz. pkgs. cream cheese, softened
1 tsp. vanilla
1 cup pumpkin
1/4 tsp. nutmeg

Preheat oven to 350°. In a medium mixing bowl, combine cookie crumbs, pecans and butter. Press into the bottom and about 1/2 inch up the sides of a 9-inch spring form pan. Bake 10 minutes. Set aside to cool. In another medium bowl, mix cream cheese, 1/2 cup sugar and vanilla until smooth. Mix in eggs one at a time, blending well after each. Set aside 1 cup of this mixture. Mix 1/4 cup sugar, pumpkin, cinnamon and nutmeg into the remaining mixture. Spread the pumpkin mixture onto cooled crust. Drop plain mixture by spoonfuls onto the top. Swirl with a few strokes of a knife to create marbled effect (be careful not to do this too much or the effect will look muddled). Bake 55 minutes or until filling is set. Run a knife around the edge of pan when slightly cooled. Allow to cool fully before removing from pan. Chill at least 4 hours before serving.
