Pecan Pie Cheesecake Recipe

Certainly! Here’s a recipe for Pecan Pie Cheesecake:

Ingredients:

For the crust:

  • 1 ½ cups graham cracker crumbs
  • ¼ cup melted butter
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar

For the cheesecake filling:

  • 16 oz (450g) cream cheese, softened
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

For the pecan pie layer:

  • ¾ cup light corn syrup
  • ½ cup packed brown sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 tbsp melted butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 ½ cups pecan halves

Instructions:

  1. Preheat your oven to 325°F (160°C).
  2. In a mixing bowl, combine the graham cracker crumbs, melted butter, and granulated sugar for the crust. Mix until the crumbs are evenly coated.
  3. Press the crust mixture into the bottom of a 9-inch (23cm) springform pan, covering the bottom evenly. You can use the back of a spoon or your fingers to press it firmly.
  4. In another mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese and granulated sugar until smooth and creamy. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in the vanilla extract.
  5. Pour the cream cheese mixture over the crust in the springform pan, spreading it out evenly.
  6. In a separate bowl, whisk together the corn syrup, brown sugar, eggs, melted butter, and vanilla extract for the pecan pie layer. Stir in the pecan halves.

  1. Carefully pour the pecan pie mixture over the cream cheese layer, distributing the pecans evenly.
  2. Place the springform pan on a baking sheet to catch any potential drips, and place it in the preheated oven.
  3. Bake for about 1 hour and 15 minutes, or until the center of the cheesecake is set and the pecan pie layer is golden brown. The center might still be slightly jiggly, but it will firm up as it cools.
  4. Remove the cheesecake from the oven and let it cool completely at room temperature. Then, refrigerate for at least 4 hours or overnight before serving.
  5. Once chilled, carefully remove the sides of the springform pan. Slice and serve your delicious Pecan Pie Cheesecake.
