Make Cheese­cake 1. Pre­heat oven to 350°F. Lightly coat a 9-inch spring­form pan with non­stick cook­ing spray. Wrap bot­tom tightly with foil. Mix to­gether gra­ham cracker crumbs, but­ter, and 1 Tbsp. sugar in a bowl un­til well com­bined. Press into bot­tom and 1 inch up sides of pre­pared spring­form pan. Bake 8 min­utes. Let cool on a wire rack. Re­duce oven tem­per­a­ture to 325°F.

2. Beat cream cheese in a large bowl with an elec­tric mixer un­til fluffy. Grad­u­ally add re­main­ing cup sugar, beat­ing un­til blended. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beat­ing well af­ter each ad­di­tion. Stir in sour cream, liqueur, and vanilla. Pour into cooled crust. Set spring­form pan in a roast­ing pan; pour enough hot wa­ter into roast­ing pan to reach halfway up sides of spring­form pan. 3. Bake 1 hour. Prop oven door open slightly and let cheese­cake rest in oven 15 min­utes more. Run a knife around edge. Cool on a wire rack to room tem­per­a­ture, then cover with a pa­per towel and plas­tic wrap.

Chill at least 8 hours or up to 3 days. Spread top with thin layer of caramel top­ping.

[We piped al­ter­nat­ing dol­lops with and with­out a star tip.] Dust whipped cream with cin­na­mon (if us­ing).
