Hi! It's Jilly. Today's delicious recipe comes from Kathy at Cornerstone Confessions. I love linking up with her Titus 2 Tuesday linky party, so I was giddy when she agreed to participate in the Fall In Love With Fall Series! She's speaking my language with this awesome cheesecake recipe! Let's check it out!
If there is one thing I will break my diet for every time, its cheesecake. I love me some cheesecake. But making it can take a lot of time and work. Thus, I’d often rather take a trip to the Cheesecake Factory to pick up a few of my favorite slices than bake it, which is probably good for my diet because that would require a bit of a travel.
However, I have recently grown quite fond of this Caramel Pecan Cream Cheese Pie recipe because…
1) It’s cheesecake!
2) It’s easy and fast to make!
3) It’s virtually a no bake recipe!
Besides all that I really like the caramel pecan topping. It reminds me so much of fall and the picking of pecans in my parent’s backyard. All that to say, if you love pecans and you love cheesecake, then this recipe is for you, but be forewarned–you may have trouble stopping with just one piece. Enjoy!
Caramel Pecan Cream Cheese Pie
1/4 c. pecans, chopped
1/8 c. flaked coconut
1 tbsp. butter, melted
8 oz. cream cheese, softened
½ c. confectioner’s sugar
8 oz. Cool Whip
1 graham cracker crust
Caramel Ice Cream Topping
In a small bowl combine the pecans, coconut, and butter. Pour into a small baking dish. Bake at 375 degrees for 5 to 10 minutes or until golden, stirring occasionally. Cool.
In a separate bowl, beat cream cheese and sugar until smooth. Fold in Cool Whip. Pour cream cheese mixture into graham cracker crust. Sprinkle with coconut mixture.
Refrigerate 2 hours. Drizzle with caramel just before serving. Serves 8.
