Tasting this cheesecake will quickly bring the South to mind. For me, it always conjures up the image of a couple swinging on the front porch, taking in the beauty of the huge magnolia tree out in their yard.

"Problems with this recipe: First of all a praline is a candy coated nut. This recipe just calls for toasted pecans. 2nd: Not enough butter in crust (it just crumbles away after being baked). I do love cheesecakes and this is the first negative review I have ever given for one. Sorry"

"This turned out beautifully! I did not have pecans on hand, but a simple drizzle of caramel sauce made the cheesecake special. I will definitely go back to this recipe."
