  • Cream the cheese in a large mixing bowl with an electric mixer, add the sugar, flour, vanilla and beat well.
  • Add the eggs and egg yolks one at a time, beating lightly after each addition. Add the pecans and beat until thoroughly mixed. Add the heavy cream, beat lightly and set mixture aside.
  • Preheat oven as per cookie dough package instructions. Butter the base and sides of a 9 or 10-inch springform pan and remove the sides from the pan. Roll out enough of the cookie dough to cover the bottom of the pan about 1/8-inch thick, fit over the bottom of the pan and trim by running a rolling pin over the edges. Bake for time called for on cookie dough package or till golden, and let cool.
  • Increase oven heat to 550 degrees F. Place the sides of the pan over the base. Roll the remaining cookie dough 1/8-inch thick, cut into strips to fit almost to the top of the sides of the pan and press so that the strips line the sides completely.
  • Fill the pan with the cheese mixture, bake for 10 minutes, reduce heat to 350 degrees F, and continue baking for 1 hour. [Cooking time may vary from oven to oven - check with toothpick]
  • Allow to cool on cooling rack. To serve, remove the sides of the pan very carefully and cut.
