    Recipe Introduction


    This cheesecake is phenomenal! It definitely gives you the festive feel with the rich pecan layer, and you can never go wrong with a cheesecake layer, hehe!

    List of Ingredients




    CRUST:
    1-3/4 cups vanilla wafer crumbs
    1/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
    1/3 cup butter, melted

    PECAN FILLING:
    1 cup sugar
    2/3 cup dark corn syrup
    1/3 cup butter, melted
    2 eggs
    1-1/2 cups chopped pecans
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract

    CHEESECAKE FILLING:
    3 (8-ounce) packages cream cheese, softened
    1-1/4 cups firmly packed brown sugar
    2 Tablespoons all-purpose flour
    4 eggs
    2/3 cup heavy whipping cream
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract


    Recipe



    CRUST:
    Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Combine wafer crumbs and brown sugar. Stir in melted butter. Press into bottom and up sides of a 9″ springform pan. Bake for 6 minutes. Set aside to cool.

    PECAN FILLING:
    Combine all ingredients in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat and simmer until thickened, about 8-10 minutes, stirring constantly. Pour into crust and set aside.

    CHEESECAKE FILLING:
    Reduce oven to 325 degrees F. With a hand mixer or stand mixer, beat cream cheese at medium speed until creamy. Add brown sugar and flour and beat until fluffy. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each one. Stir in cream and vanilla. Pour over pecan filling. Bake for 1 hour. Turn off oven and leave cheesecake in oven with the door closed for 1 hour. Remove from oven and run a knife along the outside edges to loosen cheesecake from sides of pan. Let cool. Chill for at least 4 hours before serving.
