Sometimes I like to stray a little from the traditional pie this time of year. Cheesecake is something that I’ve been making and perfecting for many many years. I love a good cheesecake. I also love pecan pie. So today I have for you a mashup of the two: Pecan Pie Cheesecake.
I have a favorite cheesecake base recipe that I use for all my cheesecakes. You can find it in my Strawberries and Cream Cheesecake too. It’s so smooth and not too sweet and not too rich. That’s what I love about it.
And now for the pecans. Pecans are hands down my favorite nut. And you know what? Just a few days ago I found out that pecans are the only nut native to North America. Pretty neat, huh? At our store and on our website we sell the absolute best nuts. We use the best quality, carry a larger size nut, and keep them refrigerated for even freshness and great quality. You can find our pecan pieces on our website here. They’ll be perfect for this cheesecake.
