Cheesey Pecan Pie is the BEST Cheesecake

One of my favorite cheesecake recipes is the Cheesey Pecan Pie that I shared back in 2016. You can go directly to that post by clicking on the link highlighted in red. I have made it several times, but I always made it in a pre-made crust; however, this time I made my own crust and baked it in a springform pan, which made this turn out so much better than any of the times I baked it before. It was thick, creamy and delicious. I highly recommend buying one of these pans as you will not be disappointed. I bought the 9 inch size, but you can find them in smaller and larger sizes as well.

I also think it turned out better this time, not only because of the pan I used, but because I was baking in a full-size oven as compared to the oven in the RV. It is very hard to regulate the temperature in an RV oven. Although I baked many items in my RV oven, I am seeing a lot of my stuff turning out much better now that I am cooking in a regular size one.

Delight Pie Recipe

One of my most favorite recipes is for Delight Pie. When I was first introduced to this recipe I wasn’t sure that I would like it. I can’t get enough of it now.

It is not only a delight for kids, but for adults too. Quick to make using a pre-made chocolate pie shell or by making the cookie crumb recipe below.

Cheesey Pecan Pie Recipe

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.
