    SERVINGS

    Ingredients

  • 1 cup graham cracker crumbs
  • 3/4 cup ground pecans
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1-1/2 packages (8 ounces each) cream cheese, room temperature
  • 1 cup caramel ice cream topping, divided
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1/2 cup sour cream, optional
  • Whole pecans

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 350 F. Grease an 8-inch springform pan; set aside.
  • In a bowl, combine graham cracker crumbs, pecans, sugar, and butter, and mix well. Press onto bottom and 1-1/2 inches up sides of prepared pan. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl, beat cream cheese with an electric mixer until fluffy. Beat in 1/2 cup caramel topping. Add eggs and milk, and beat just until blended. Spoon mixture into crust-lined pan.
  • Bake for 40 to 45 minutes, or until center is set. Remove from oven, and cool in pan for 15 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, blend sour cream with remaining caramel topping, and spoon over cheesecake. Loosen sides of cheesecake from pan with a spatula, and let cool for 30 minutes before removing sides of pan. Chill well. Top with pecan halves just before serving.
