  7. Spoon half of cream cheese mixture into crust; spoon half of the cinnamon mixture over top. Swirl with knife or metal spatula.
  8. Top with remaining cream cheese mixture.
  9. Spoon remaining cinnamon mixture over top; swirl to outer edges of pan.

  12. Loosen sides of cheesecake from pan by running knife around inside of pan.
