1/2 cup chopped walnuts or pecans

1. Combine cream cheese, cinnamon, sugar, allspice, pumpkin, vanilla and eggs until smooth.

3. Bake at 350 F for 15 minutes. Cool slightly.

4. Pour cream cheese mixture over baked crust. Sprinkle with reserved topping. Bake 30 to 35 minutes at 350 F. Cool before cutting.

Recipe looks great, the only thing is it never says when to use the flour and brown sugar. Must have forgotten to type it in. I am assuming you use it in the crust, thats what I am trying anyways. Sounds and looks amazing!
