I’ve taken two of the best desserts out there and combined them into one knock-out recipe!
This Brown Sugar Pecan Pie Cheesecake is rich, decadent and full of that delicious caramel flavor!
You know how much I love cheesecake. Well, this cheesecake recipe is beyond simple to make, and is sure to please everyone.
Unless you’re allergic to pecans…
The cheesecake base is my classic recipe filled with 4 bricks of nutrient rich cream cheese and bone healthy sour cream (you could easily use plain greek yogurt in place of the sour cream), but rather than using regular white sugar to lightly sweeten it, I substituted in a little bit of brown sugar.
It’s the perfect base for a layer of pecan pie.
Obviously I’m all about simple, simple, simple… so when it came to adding that pecan pie layer on top, I went the easy route.
All I did was coarsely chop some pecans and spread them over the cheesecake filling. Then I whisked some eggs and caramel ice cream topping together to create a rich and delicious pecan pie filling. Just pour it over the pecans and bake the cheesecake!
I won’t lie, the filling was really close to the top and I was nervous it might over flow while baking. I placed it on top of a foil lined baking sheet just in case, but nothing spilled out! Success!
Like I said… I’m smitten.
This cheesecake is so so so good. Even the crust has bits of pecans and brown sugar in it!
I should subtitle this cheesecake: “Everything you love about Fall”
Top each slice with a few more pecans and a drizzle of caramel ice cream topping… then drift away into cheesecake bliss.
