In a large mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese. Add the pumpkin and beat until combined. Add the sugar and salt, and beat until combined. Add the eggs mixed with the yolks, and melted butter, and beat until combined. Finally, add the vanilla, cinnamon, ginger, clove, and nutmeg beat until incorporated.
