Pecan Pie Cheesecake
"Pecan Pie Cheesecake. All the elements of the perfect pecan pie and perfect baking vanilla cheesecake merged to create this showstopper of a dessert! Make sure the cream cheese is at room temperature. The cream cheese will be easier to beat and result in a lump free, smooth texture. Allow the cheesecake to cool in the oven with the door ajar for at least an hour – but preferably two – before removing and placing on the bench to come to room temperature. I know this seems excessive and we – me included – are all guilty of skipping this step but it really does help prevent a cracked top. I’ll admit and say I only waited 30 minutes before removing but do this at your on risk! Allow the cheesecake to come completely to room temperature before placing it in the fridge. Again this helps prevent the cracking and sinking, particularly with the pecan pie filling!"
