Written by Anna White

It’s been a while since I’ve posted a recipe, so let’s change that today. This recipe has been altered from the original that I found in “Pecan Lovers Cookbook” as I prefer to use a pre-made pie crust and not as many pecans. Other than that this is a great recipe and a great tasting cheesecake.
