Preparation

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C).
  2. Make the crust: In a large bowl, mix together the crushed graham crackers and melted butter until the mixture resembles wet sand.
  3. Pour onto a baking sheet and press into an even layer. Use a spatula to draw lines in the crust crosswise, dividing it into 4 even sections. Arrange the graham cracker quarters along the lines, then press down the crust around the crackers to secure.
  4. Bake for 8 minutes until lightly browned. Let cool to room temperature.
  5. Reduce the oven temperature to 225°F (105°C).
  6. Make the filling: In a large bowl, use an electric hand mixer on medium speed to whip the cream cheese and sugar until slightly fluffy, about 2 minutes. Add the eggs, 1 at a time.
  7. Mix in the sour cream and vanilla. Divide the filling evenly between 4 medium bowls.
  8. In the first bowl, mix in the sweet potato puree, ¼ teaspoon of cinnamon, and the nutmeg.
  9. In another bowl, whisk in the chocolate hazelnut spread.
  10. In another bowl, whisk in ¼ teaspoon of cinnamon.
  11. In the last bowl, mix in the pumpkin puree and the pumpkin pie spice.
  12. Pour each flavored filling into a section of the crust and smooth with a spatula.
  13. Scoop the apple pie filling over the cinnamon flavor and swirl into the filling with a skewer.
  14. Drizzle the melted semi-sweet chocolate over the chocolate flavor and swirl into the filling with a skewer.
  15. Sprinkle the chopped pecans over the pumpkin filling.
  16. Bake for 1 hour, until cheesecake is set. Let cool in the oven with the door open.
  17. Refrigerate overnight before slicing into wedges and serving.
  18. Enjoy!
