Rich Cream Cheese Pecan Pie

Rich Cream Cheese Pecan Pie


"This is a 3 layer pie: the bottom crust, a creamy cheesecake-like layer, and a delicious pecan pie layer on top. Warning: this is very rich, and definitely NOT diet food. Especially good with a dollop of whipped cream. It might keep up to a week in the fridge, but it's never lasted that long at our house! Dark chocolate pieces may be used in place of semi-sweet chocolate chips. Instead of chopped pecans, trying arranging pecan halves in an eye-pleasing manner on top of pie."

This pie was really good. My husband ate the whole pie by himself. It's also very good with butter scotch chips. I recomend it to anyone who likes pecan pie and cheese cake.

This pie is worth the effort and calories! Very rich. I subsituted almond extract for vanilla, as I often do in recipes.
