⅓ cup light brown sugar
For pecan pie fillings:
1½ cups of pecans, chopped
2 eggs
⅓ cup of butter with salt
1 cup of granulated sugar
1 cup of light corn syrup
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
For cheesecake:
16 ounces of softened cream cheese
3 eggs
1 cup of granulated sugar
½ cup of sour cream
1½ tablespoons of all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon of vanilla extract
¼ teaspoon of salt
For pecan topping:
1 cup of chopped pecans
⅓ cup of light brown sugar
¼ cup of butter with salt
¼ cup of heavy cream
½ teaspoon of vanilla extract
1. Preheat the oven to 325°F (165°C). Prepare a 9-inch springform pan by lightly greasing the sides.

2. Create the crust by mixing graham cracker crumbs, brown sugar, and melted butter. Press this mixture into the pan to form a crust, then place it in the freezer.
3. For the pecan pie filling, melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Add sugar, corn syrup, eggs, vanilla extract, and chopped pecans. Simmer until thick and golden brown, then pour it into the chilled crust.

4. In a separate bowl, beat cream cheese and sugar until fluffy. Add salt, flour, vanilla extract, eggs (one at a time), and sour cream. Pour this cheesecake mixture over the pecan filling.
5. Wrap the pan’s bottom with foil and place it in a larger pan. Create a water bath by adding water to the outer pan.


6. Bake for 1 hour or until the cheesecake slightly jiggles when shaken.
7. Turn off the oven and let the cheesecake cool with the door closed for 30 minutes. Then, crack the door slightly for another 30 minutes before refrigerating it overnight.
8. For the pecan topping, melt butter and brown sugar in a saucepan. Stir in vanilla extract and heavy cream until smooth. Add chopped pecans and carefully spoon the mixture over the chilled cheesecake.
