  1. Preheat your oven to 150 degrees celsius fan bake. In a food processor, blend the biscuits until they reach a fine, sandy consistency. Transfer to a mixing bowl. 
  2. Melt 150g of butter, then pour into the crushed biscuits. Stir well to combine, then press into the base and sides of a lined 20cm springform cake tin. Refrigerate for 30 minutes. 
  3. To make the cheesecake filling, place the Philadelphia Original Cream Cheese, sour cream, vanilla extract, caster sugar and brown sugar in a mixing bowl. Using a whisk or electric beater, mix until smooth and fluffy. 
  4. One at a time, whisk the eggs into the cream cheese mixture until fully incorporated. Finally, add the ground ginger, cinnamon, mixed spice and a pinch of salt, then whisk to combine. 
  5. Pour the cheesecake mixture into the chilled biscuit base. Place onto a tray and bake in the oven for 60-75 minutes or until just set in the centre. Leave to cool until the cheesecake is cool enough to handle, then place into the fridge to set completely for a minimum of 4 hours. 
  6. To serve the cheesecake, pipe whipped cream around the border of the cheesecake. Nestle gingerbread men amongst the cream, then slice and drizzle with caramel sauce. Serve immediately and enjoy.
