"Two pies in one: spicy pecan and tender cheesecake. Comes out of the oven with the layers switched! Looks like a cheesecake but a surprise is underneath." — Susan Lee

I LOVE THIS RECIPE!! THE WONDERFUL TASTE OF PECAN PIE WITHOUT THE CLOYING SWEETNESS. THIS IS MY FAVORITE PECAN PIE RECIPE.
This was superb! The "cheesecake" layer is perfect to balance out the gooey sweetness of a pecan pie. I will be making it like this from now on! I took this as the desert to a family gathering, and the compliments kept coming. Also was asked for the recipe by everyone there!
I made this on the spur of the moment and only had 1/2 a cup of pecans, so I used chopped walnuts for the rest and it was still delicious! (In fact, no one even realized it was mostly walnuts until I passed out the recipe!) Thanks for the great recipe, it's a definitely a keeper!
And a tip for getting a good bottom crust without having to pre-bake is to always use a glass or ceramic dish, stay away from the aluminum pans...
I made this recipie and took it to work for a potluck and THEY LOVED IT!!! This is a terrific site for any kind of recipie you would ever want and more...Thank You for having it online!
Everyone loved this pie. Great combination for pecan pie and cheesecake lovers!
Delicious! I needed to feed a crowd so I used a shortbread crust and made these into bars.
Very yummy and very easy. Made for a dinner party and folks raved about it. Not overly sweet like many desserts. Omitted the cloves and still great. Would use maybe a half cup more pecans next time and the store bought crust I used was not the best, but I for sure will be making this again!
Yummy! This was a very good pie, nice change from the normal pecan pie. And it was really easy to make. I did have to change it up just a bit. I only had about 1/3 cup of light corn syrup so I used that and the rest dark corn syrup. Also left out the cloves. My family really loved this. Thanks!
Loved it! I am not a fan of the sweetness of a regular pecan pie but my husband is. This was a great compromise. I followed the recipe but next time I will leave out the cloves (just a personal preference as neither of us are fans of his spice). Our company however, loved it just the way it was.
