This cheesecake recipe is wonderful! The texture is perfect and the crust was delicious! One thing I would for sure change is the caramel topping. It was tasty, but the caramel hardned once I placed it in the fridge and when I tried to cut it, the topping messed up. I suggest a LIQUID CARAMEL TOPPING that is normally for ice cream. That way it is soft. But keep the caramel candy in the cheesecake part, it was delicious.
Oh my goodness! What a wonderful cheesecake! The texture is so creamy and the crust, mmm. The pecans just add a special touch to it. I made this recipe almost as exactly stated. The only change I made was the caramel I used. I did not use Kraft caramels, I used Praline Sundae Topping (with the nuts omitted - recipe from this site) for the entire recipe. The amount to be used in the batter (36 melted caramels) would be 1¼ cups. (special thanks to redneck gramma for calling Kraft to find out!) This cheesecake baked up perfectly and I did not top it with the nuts and caramel right away because sometimes I like plain cheesecake. When enjoyed plain, you can tell that it is a caramel cheesecake. The flavour is subtle yet noticeable and perfect on it's own. I added caramel and pecans to individual servings and wow, just looking at it was like eye candy - digging into it was heavenly! Thanks for the recipe. Delightful!
This is scrummy, the only change I made was to use liquid caramel topping, it stayed soft and creamy.
amazing recipe!!! We made it for mother's day and it was the perfect treat - a must-have for cheese cake lovers with a sweet tooth. The only thing was that the caramel on top hardened until it was like toffee, so I would suggest leaving it out for a bit before serving so the caramel is soft. I will be making this one again!
This is awesome!!! I decided to take a chance and try it for a dinner party we were invited to (I volunteered to bring dessert); and it was sooooooo good!! And easy. Will make it a part of my standard recipes. I did do like others recommended and used the store bought caramel topping. Thx so much Philadelphia....great recipe!!
This is so good, I have made this several times and everyone loves it.
I always heard that making cheesecake was difficult, but after making this one, I guess I don't understand why. Family and friends said I should sell it... it was that good. It was my first ever try to, so it doesn't get much easier or better than that. Thanks for the recipe!!!
This cheesecake was yummy and extremely easy to make. I made a mistake in measuring, so ended up having to double the recipe, which was actually a good thing because it was gone quickly when my husband brought it to work. I ended up making a 9 X 13 inch rectangular pan and a 7 X 11 brownie pan. They came out light and tasty. I did use the melted caramels in the cake, but drizzled caramel sundae sauce over the top.
