Pecan Pie Cheesecake
Pecan Pie Cheesecake is a dreamy blend of the fabulous flavors that make up both a cheese cake and a pecan pie. This particular recipe also has four layers, if you include the final topping, dulce de leche sauce. The recipe creator and blogger from the web site, Spicy Southern Kitchen, offers a home made version of this milk and sugar based treat. Try it. It is fantastic, and you will not be able to stop eating it (so try not to start). A number of cultures make a sauce like this one. The Mexican version is even tastier, if such a thing is possible. The Mexican version combines goat milk with sugar and scraped vanilla bean and cooks for up to eight hours to become thick and golden. The Mexican name for this extraordinary sauce is cajeta. And it is fabulous.
In any case, this recipe for Pecan Pie Cheesecake uses the French version of the thickened milk, dulce de leche, and it is fabulous. The pie has a cookie base that is the usual you might expect, and combines graham wafers and butter, which is then baked and cooled before adding the next layers. And the next layer is a classic pecan pie filling, rich and full of sugar. A cheese cake made with a whopping three packages (24 ounces) of cream cheese forms the third layer. Yum. This is a rich and decadent dessert. Serve it in small pieces, with a great dollop of fresh cream (made without sugar) on top (to cut all that sweet, don’t you know!).
This recipe for Pecan Pie Cheesecake is a great dessert that will take some time to prepare, but it is worth the effort to make it. It will be a smash hit with the family (and you, too). So try this soon, and enjoy your efforts with this extraordinary cheese cake. Enjoy this fabulous two in one pie and cheesecake served with the extraordinary dulce de leche sauce.
