  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Mix graham crumbs, granulated sugar and margarine; press firmly onto bottom and up side of 9-inch pie plate; set aside. Spread 1/2 cup of the pecans into shallow baking pan. Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until lightly toasted, stirring occasionally. Cool slightly. Finely chop pecans; sprinkle evenly onto bottom of crust. Set aside.
  • Reduce oven temperature to 325°F. Beat cream cheese, brown sugar and vanilla in small bowl with electric mixer on medium speed until well blended. Add in eggs; mix just until blended. Pour over pecans in crust. Arrange remaining pecans around edge of pie.
  • Bake 40 to 45 minutes or until center is almost set. Cool on wire rack. Refrigerate at least 4 hours. Drizzle with caramel topping just before serving. Store leftover cheesecake in refrigerator.

Size Wise

An occasional dessert can be a part of a balanced diet, but remember to keep tabs on portions.

How to Soften Cream Cheese

Place completely unwrapped packages of cream cheese on microwavable plate. Microwave on HIGH 15 to 20 seconds or until slightly softened.

Special Extra

Cover edge of pie crust with strip of foil for the last 15 min. of the baking time to prevent it from browning too much.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I was looking for a cheesecake that was quick and easy, yet different from the traditional. I was looking for a cheesecake that was quick and easy, yet different from the traditional. I had all the ingredients on hand so that also attracted me to give it a try. My first thought was that this might be a little 'too sweet' for me because of the brown suger and carmel. To my surprise the pecans offset the sweetness. Very nice combination of flavors. A hit all around in my house. Hint...I had no carmel ice cream topping so I melted some kraft carmels (about 12 to a 1/2 teaspoon of water) and drizzeled that over the top. I have made this cake twice in a week, by request. Plan to try Phili 3-step mini cheesecakes this afternoon. I'll let you know the results of that also.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not the best cheesecake I've ever had. Not the best cheesecake I've ever had. Very little taste and I would leave off the pecans in the crust if I ever made it again. Needs more caramel I think.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really good. Really good. It came out kinda thin, so next time I'll use a smaller pan, but the taste was excellent. I din't last in my house more than 24 hours.
