How To Make Pecan Pie Cheesecake Recipe

FIRST STEP:

Preheat the oven to 325*

Line a 9 inch springform pan with parchment paper and spray lightly

Prepare the crust first

Press the crust into the prepared springform pan

Bring the crust part way up the sides of the pan

Place the pan and crust into the freezer to chill while you make the filling

SECOND STEP:

In a saucepan, melt the butter over low heat

Combine the sugar, corn syrup, the eggs, vanilla and pecans( it is best to not add the eggs first, you could end up with breakfast eggs).

Stir continuously to keep the ingredients mixed well.

Reduce the heat and simmer until the mix thickens

Pour this filling into the prepared crust and set to the side

THIRD STEP:

Cream the cream cheese and sugar together and then add in the salt and the flour

Stir in the vanilla and then the eggs, one at a time. Add the sour cream and beat until just mixed, do not over mix
