Question: does the pie separate into layers as it bakes? The. Pix shows a caramel layer on the bottom but the directions say put the cream cheese mixture in first.
This is a favorite when I take it to Church dinners. I make it for 2 friends on their birthdays instead of cake.
This recipe is great! The pie smells as delicious as it tastes.. I will definitely be making this one again. I put it in a graham cracker crust, and it was off the wall. I do, however have a couple tips to the people who claim the pie was too runny or eggy. When mixing the cheese filling, make sure you beat it smooth as the instructions say. It may take quite a bit of doing, considering you are dealing with cream cheese, especially if it isnt softened completely. Make sure there are no chunks left and that it is nice and whipped. The same goes for the caramel topping. I also only used 2 and a half eggs instead of 3 in the topping mixture. let the pecans swim, but dont drown them. I didnt completely use the entire topping mixture on mine. Finally, make sure your cheesecake is completely baked to the middle, and make sure you cool and refridge the pie for the proper amount of time.
I made this today to share with some friends and everyone loved it. The only change I made was that I substituted homemade brown sugar caramel for the store bought topping. Its the "easy caramel sauce" on the Pioneer Woman site, and it literally only takes five minutes to make. Just make sure to let it come to room temperature before letting it touch the eggs, and keep it a little on the runny side - it will thicken a bit as it comes to room temperature, and you don't want it too thick when you mix it with the eggs. The pie was great - a perfect blend of several wonderful tastes and textures. I give it five stars.
I followed the instruction exactly as written and it was honestly the worst dessert I've ever made. I was embarrassed when I sent it with my husband for his cookout and he told me it was awful. I tried it and I threw out the entire thing (6 pieces left). I wish I could give it 0 stars.
