In fall or any time of year, this nutty, rich and delicious pecan pie recipe is one I am proud to serve. While it seems very special, this caramel pecan cheesecake is a snap to make. —Becky Ruff, Monona, Iowa

Ingredients

  • 1 sheet refrigerated pie crust
  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 4 large eggs, room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1-1/4 cups chopped pecans
  • 1 jar (12-1/4 ounces) fat-free caramel ice cream topping
  • Additional fat-free caramel ice cream topping, optional

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375°. Line a 9-in. deep-dish pie plate or cast-iron skillet with crust. Trim and flute edges. In a small bowl, beat cream cheese, sugar, 1 egg and vanilla until smooth. Spread into crust; sprinkle with pecans.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk remaining eggs; gradually whisk in caramel topping until blended. Pour slowly over pecans.
  3. Bake 35-40 minutes or until lightly browned (loosely cover edges with foil after 20 minutes if pie browns too quickly). Cool on a wire rack 1 hour. Refrigerate 4 hours or overnight before slicing. If desired, garnish with additional caramel ice cream topping.
Editor’s Note: This recipe was tested with Smucker’s ice cream topping.
