Ingredients
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F and lightly mist an 8-inch cake pan with non-stick spray. Line the bottom of the pan with a circle of parchment.

  2. Place the graham crackers, brown sugar, spices, and salt in the bowl of a food processor, and pulse until the graham crackers are finely processed.
  3. Transfer the mixture to a large bowl, add the melted butter, and stir to combine.
  4. Press the mixture into the bottom of the prepared pan.
  5. In a large mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese, sugar, and flour until fluffy.
  6. Add the eggs, one at a time, scraping the bottom and sides of the mixing bowl with a silicone spatula after each addition.
  7. Stir in the cream, then pour all but around ¾ cup of the batter over the graham cracker crust and into the prepared pan. Stir the matcha powder into the remaining batter and drop tablespoonfuls of it all over the surface. Swirl with a toothpick.
  8. Place the cheesecake pan in a larger pan, and fill with about an inch of hot water. Bake the cheesecake for 10 minutes, lower the heat to 200 degrees F, and bake for another hour, or until the edges are set and the center is just a little bit wobbly.

  9. Prop the oven door open with a wooden spoon, and allow the cheesecake to come to room temperature. Chill in the refrigerator overnight before flipping the cheesecake out of the pan and onto a serving dish.
