In bowl, stir together graham wafer crumbs, sugar, butter, ginger, cinnamon, cloves and salt until moistened. Press onto bottom and up sides of parchment paper–lined 8-inch (2 L) square metal cake pan. Bake in 350°F (180°C) oven until golden, about 10 minutes. Let cool.

Cheesecake: In saucepan, stir together pumpkin purée, sugar, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, cloves and salt; cook over medium-high heat, stirring constantly, until thickened, about 5 minutes. Stir in whipping cream. Transfer to bowl and let cool.

In large bowl, beat cream cheese until smooth, about 2 minutes. Beat in eggs, 1 at a time; beat in vanilla. Beat one-quarter into pumpkin mixture; return to cream cheese mixture and beat until incorporated. Pour over crust.
