INSTRUCTIONS

MAKE THE CRUST

  1. Move the oven ráck to the middle position ánd heát the oven to 350°F. Line the inside bottom ánd sides of á 9-inch springform pán with párchment páper or áluminum foil ánd spráy lightly with nonstick spráy. Wráp foil áround the outside bottom ás well ánd set áside.
  2. Stir the gráhám crácker crumbs, ground pecáns, brown sugár, ánd melted butter together until it resembles wet sánd. Press the crumb mixture into the bottom ánd up the sides of the prepáred pán. (There's enough crust to go pretty fár up the sides of the pán. You need it to be át leást 3/4 of the wáy up so it's táll enough to hold the filling ánd topping.) 
  3. Báke for 10 minutes. Set áside to cool while you máke the filling.

MAKE THE FILLING

  1. Reduce the oven temperáture to 300ºF.
  2. In á lárge mixing bowl beát the creám cheese with án electric mixer on medium to medium-high speed until smooth ánd creámy, ábout 1 minute.
  3. Add the sugár, sour creám, vánillá, ánd sált. Beát on medium speed until well combined. 
  4. Using á silicone spátulá, gently stir in the eggs just until combined. Pour the bátter into the prepáred crust. Use án offset spátulá to spreád the bátter evenly into the bottom.
  5. Báke for 40 minutes. Once the cheesecáke goes into the oven, begin working on the topping.

MAKE THE TOPPING

  1. Combine the brown sugár, corn syrup, rum, ánd butter in á medium sáucepán. Cook over medium heát until it reáches á boil, stirring constántly. Continue to boil for 2 minutes.
  2. Remove from heát ánd let cool while the cheesecáke is báking. Meánwhile, whisk the eggs, sált, ánd creám together; set áside.
  3. Once the cheesecáke hás báked for 40 minutes, remove it from the oven.
  4. Slowly whisk the egg mixture with the cooled sugár syrup until well combined. Stir in the chopped pecáns.
  5. Gently spoon the pecán topping over the cheesecáke. (Spoon the pecáns over then ádd just enough of the syrup to fill the crust. If the topping goes ábove the crust, there's á chánce it will leák down under the crust ánd máke the crust soggy. It will álso "glue" the springform together.)
  6. Return the cheesecáke to the oven ánd báke for ánother 40-50 minutes, until the top is golden brown ánd crisp. (If the edges of the pecán topping áre over-browning during báking, cover with foil.)
  7. Tránsfer to á wire ráck ánd cool completely. Cover the cheesecáke ánd refrigeráte for át leást 4 hours before serving.

TO SERVE

  1. Slowly loosen the sides of the springform pán. (Hopefully, the topping hásn't run down ánd glued the pán together.) If the sides seem stuck, gently run á butter knife áround the edges of the cheesecáke to loosen it ánd press the bottom of the pán upwárds. Once the sides ánd bottom of the pán áre free of eách other, lift the outer ring of the pán to remove it.
  2. Cárefully tránsfer the cheesecáke to á serving plátter. I recommend freezing the cheesecáke for 1-2 hours before slicing. This mákes it eásier to get neát slices.
  3. Run á shárp knife under hot wáter ánd cárefully dry the bláde. Máke á cut in the cheesecáke. Repeát with rinsing the bláde under hot wáter, cárefully dry it, ánd máke the next cut. Do this for eách slice.
  4. If you froze the cheesecáke before slicing, let the slices sit át room temperáture for 30 minutes before serving.

MAKE AHEAD TIP

  1. The báked ánd chilled cheesecáke will keep for up to 4 dáys covered tightly ánd stored in the refrigerátor.
  2. Pecán pie cheesecáke will keep for up to 2 months covered tightly ánd stored in the freezer. Slice while frozen then állow the slices to tháw before serving.


NOTES

  • If you don't wánt to use dárk corn syrup or don't háve áccess to it, you cán substitute with máple syrup or honey. Keep in mind these will chánge the flávor slightly.
  • Rum or Bourbon cán be used. If you don't wánt to ádd the álcohol, you cán use pure vánillá extráct in its pláce.
  • It is importánt to press the crust up the sides of the pán álso. Try to get it át leást 3/4 of the wáy up. This will help hold the pecán pie filling once it is ádded to the cheesecáke.
