Pecan Pie Cheesecake Recipe

Say hello to pecan pie CHEESECAKE! Graham cracker crust, a layer of pecan pie filling, classic cheesecake, and a pecan praline sauce on top. This is an easy cheesecake recipe (thanks to using one of the new The Cheesecake Factory At Home cheesecake mixes!) and perfect for Thanksgiving!

We are closing in on Thanksgiving week and I am crazy thrilled to share this recipe for pecan pie cheesecake with you today! I know that there are many different camps of people when it comes to Thanksgiving food… the turkey people (I think there are turkey people, but I’ve yet to meet one!), the sides people, and the dessert people. The dessert people can further be divided up into pumpkin pie and non-pumpkin pie people.

I’m slightly afraid to admit that I am squarely a non-pumpkin pie person. I like pumpkin (pumpkin cupcakes, pumpkin rolls, pumpkin gingerbread trifles), but just not pumpkin PIE. However, put a pecan pie in front of my face, and you won’t see me again until December 1st, because I will not share.

My love of pecan pie on Thanksgiving, along with my long-standing love affair with cheesecake, collided into this most decadent, and most amazing mashup recipe, which I guarantee will be a massive hit at your Thanksgiving dinner.
