Step 2

In small bowl, beat cream cheese, 1/4 cup brown sugar, flour, 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, cardamom, and clove until smooth. Beat in 1 egg and 1/4 cup heavy cream until smooth.

Step 3

In medium bowl, whisk together pumpkin puree, salt, remaining 2 eggs, remaining 1/2 cup brown sugar, and remaining 1/2 cup heavy cream until smooth. Whisk ½ cup cream cheese mixture into pumpkin mixture, and pour pumpkin mixture into prepared pie pan. Drop cream cheese mixture onto pumpkin mixture by tablespoonfuls, and use a small spatula to swirl together.

Step 4

Bake 20 minutes, then lower oven temperature to 350°F and bake 35 to 40 minutes longer, or until center of pie jiggles only slightly.
