    Crust

    In a large bowl, combine butter and confectioners’ sugar. Cream together until light and fluffy. Stir in flour and baking powder. Blend until thoroughly combined. Pat into 3-inch high, 10-inch round pie pan, taking care to press the dough up the sides of the pan. Refrigerate while preparing the pecan pie filling.

    Pecan Pie Filling

    Combine all ingredients in a medium-sized saucepan. Stir until combined. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat, and simmer until thickened, about 8 to 10 minutes (not longer) stirring constantly. Pour into crust. Allow to cool for at least 10 minutes while preparing the cheesecake filling.

    Preheat oven to 325°F. Beat the cream cheese, sugars, and flour together until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add sour cream and vanilla and mix just until combined. Pour over pecan pie filling. Bake for 50 to 55 minutes, until center of the pie is set. Remove and cool.

    Brown Sugar Cream

    Whip cream and brown sugar until soft peaks form. Garnish each slice of cheesecake with a dollop of cream.

    I love to bake. Its really a problem. Sort of. Its a huge problem for my perpetual diet. For my boss, and my husbands coworkers- not so much! I love trying out new recipes, and combining different recipes together to make something totally new. I also love to feed people, which leads back to my original problem! So basically, if you want a lot of good yummy food, come over to CantStopBaking.blogspot.com, and have fun!
