Caramel Pecan Cheesecake

Some may argue that this isn’t really cheesecake because it’s not made in a springform pan. That’s fine.  They can argue, while the rest of us enjoy the creamy caramel and crunchy pecan combo that makes this cheesecake a standout!

Caramel Pecan Cheesecake

  • 2 packages cream cheese (8 oz.)
  • 1/2 c. sugar
  • 1/2 t. vanilla
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 c. caramel ice cream topping
  • 1/2 c. chopped pecans
  • 1 graham cracker crust

Beat cream cheese and sugar until well blended.  Add vanilla and eggs.  Mix well.

In a separate bowl, stir together ice cream topping and pecans.  Pour into crust.  Add pie filling.  Bake at 350° approximately 40 minutes (or until almost set).  Allow to cool, then chill before serving.  Drizzle additional caramel over each slice.

** The original recipe called for melting 20 unwrapped caramels with a couple tablespoons milk.  That works, but this is easier!

Who says making cheesecake has to be complicated?!

  1. I don’t care whether it’s “really” cheesecake or not, it looks and sounds yummy!

  2. I love cheesecake no matter how it is made:-)

  3. Wowie! It make not technically be a cheese”cake”, but it’s a whopper of a cream cheese pie! I can’t wait to make it, maybe next week, Jason might fall over dead from excitement.

  4. Love me some cheesecake! 😀 It is my favorite dessert! 😀

  5. Yummy! I LOVE cheesecake and this one looks so easy ~ will have to give it a try. Thanks for sharing!

  6. Id say the pan has nothing to do with it… fake cheesecakes are the “no bake” variety, and this obviously doesn’t fall into that category.


  7. Many a European cheesecake is not made in a springform pan. As a matter of fact many pros use cheesecake pans that are attached at the sides and bottom. Cheese makes a cheesecake and your cheesecake looks wonderful.

  8. This looks great. I never make my cheese cakes in springform pans because I don’t have any. If it’s got cream cheese, it is cheese cake!

  9. Sweet and simple. Sounds great.

  10. I make a “cheesecake pie” (that is divine)–I guess it’s called a pie because it in a pie dish, not a Springform. Who cares? Still yummy!

  11. Oh my that sounds so good!


  12. Looks simple but very delicious

  13. No arguments from me, for sure!! Yum!

  14. This looks so yummy! Thanks!
