Pecan Cheesecake Pie

Everyone who has ever tasted this pie LOVES it!!  I highly recommend making this for the holidays and wowing your friends and family.  It is a match made in heaven... Pecan Pie and Cheesecake.  Is there anything better?  You decide and let me know...

Pecan Cheesecake Pie

1 pastry for a 9" pie plate (Pate Brisee)
1- 8 oz. pkg. of cream cheese, softened
4 large eggs, divided
3/4 cup sugar, divided
2 tsp. vanilla, divided
1/4 tsp. salt
1 1/4 cups pecan halves
1 cup light corn syrup

Roll out pastry and fit into a 9" pie plate.  Finish edge however you'd like and place the pie shell in the refridgerator.
In a bowl, beat the cream cheese until soft and creamy. 

Cream in 1/2 cup of sugar.  Add egg, 1 tsp. vanilla, and salt.  Beat on medium speed with an electric mixer. 

Remove pie shell from the refrigerator and pour cream cheese mixture into the shell.  Return the pie shell to the refrigerator.

In a separate bowl, whisk together the corn syrup, the remaining 3 eggs, 1/4 cup sugar, and 1 tsp. vanilla. 

Remove pie from the refrigerator and sprinkle evenly with the pecan halves. 

Then pour the corn syrup mixture over the pecans.  Place the pie on a baking sheet and bake at 350 degrees on the lowest rack for 50-55 minutes or until pie is set.  Cool on a wire rack 1 hour or until completely cool.  Serve immediately or cover and chill for up to 2 days.


  1. You're right, how can anyone not like this pie? I have a similar recipe, and it's always a big hit.

  2. Yum! I almost made a pecan cheesecake pie with caramel that I'd seen somewhere for Thanksgiving, but just didn't get to that one. Christmas for sure.
    Looks and sound so good.

  3. The girls I work with LOVE pecan pie so I'm going to have to make it!
