Caramel Pecan Cheesecake

Comment on this recipe

I like this Caramel Cheesecake because it is so good and can be made ahead of time.

Ingredients

2 packages (8 ounces each) cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
2 eggs
20 caramels
2 tablespoons milk
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1 9-inch graham cracker crust

Instructions

Mix cream cheese, sugar and vanilla with electric mixer until well blended. Add eggs; mix until blended. Melt caramels with milk on low heat, stirring frequently until smooth. Stir in pecans. Pour caramel mixture into graham cracker crust. Top with the cream cheese batter. Bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes or until center is almost set. Cool. Refrigerate 3 hours or overnight. Makes 8 servings.
