Caramel Pecan Cheesecake Bars Recipe

Clocks have been set back an hour this past weekend and I am thrilled to have that extra hour to use! But along with that extra hour is having to deal with shorter days, early nights, the winter weather and low temperature.

But on the contrary the past week’s weather here has been absolutely spectacular, I can hardly believe that Thanksgiving is merely 3 weeks away ! But it has allowed me to wear a pair of jeans with open-toed shoes, and maybe a light sweater in the early mornings and evenings – which I LOVE.

Which brings me to….For today post instead of heavy appetizers and entree, I decided to change the pace and lighten up the meal with a cheese course, you do not need to guess twice, choice fell on the Cheesecake! Cheesecake is a dessert that everyone in my family loves. I turn to it for our annual gatherings more than any other sweet, and it never disappoints.

This pecan cheesecake bakes and slices like a dream, combines the irresistible flavors of cheesecake,  a graham crackers crust, caramel and a pecan-like topping. Cutting into bars makes them easier to serve to a crowd than cake. I know your upcoming Thanksgiving feast would welcome its presence.

  1. Caramel Pecan Cheesecake recipe it’s confusing. In your ingredients you only put 1 large eggs. Then in your direction you put that we will add sour cream, egg, flour and vanilla extract. then after mixing that you said add egg one a time so my question in this recipe how many eggs are needed?
