Pecan Pie Cheesecake Recipe @pinch

You'll hear angels singing as you take a bite of this delicious pecan pie cheesecake. The topping is what takes this cheesecake recipe over the top. The nuts are enveloped in buttery, caramel goodness. Smooth and creamy, the cheesecake is perfect with the vanilla wafer crust. My adaptation of a recipe I found on the internet. It was definitely a hit with my family for Christmas.
