  4. Press the mixture in an even layer over the bottom of the prepared pan.
  5. Place the cream cheese, brown sugar, and cornstarch in a large mixing bowl and beat on medium speed until smooth and creamy.  
  6. Scrape the bottom and sides of the bowl with a silicone spatula, and stir in the pumpkin.
