Remove beans or weights and foil and bake another 10 minutes, or until crust is almost dried out and begins to brown. For the filling, in a large bowl, beat cream cheese with hand mixer. Add the pumpkin and beat until combined. Add the sugar and salt, and beat until combined. Add the eggs mixed with the yolks, half and half and melted butter. Finally, add the vanilla and cinnamon and beat until smooth and creamy. Pour the filling into the warm prepared crust and bake for 50-60 minutes or until the center is set and firm.
