Rich Cream Cheese Pecan Pie

Rich Cream Cheese Pecan Pie

MARBALET

MARBALET

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.

Directions

  1. In a small bowl, blend together cream cheese, 1 egg, 1 teaspoon vanilla, 1/3 cup sugar, and salt. Mix by hand until mostly smooth. Spread mixture into the bottom of the unbaked pie shell. Sprinkle with chopped pecans.
  2. In another bowl, slightly beat 3 eggs. Stir in 1/4 cup sugar, corn syrup, and 1 teaspoon vanilla; blend well. Fold in chopped chocolate or chocolate chips. Very CAREFULLY pour corn syrup mixture over pecans. Cover pie crust edge with a strip of foil to prevent excessive browning.
  3. Bake at 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) for 35 to 45 minutes, or until center is set. Cool completely. Store in refrigerator.
  4. All done! Now take a photo, rate it, and share your accomplishments!

This recipe was delicious. I followed the directions and I made some changes to the ingredients that were required, it still turned out great. I omitted the chocolate chips and it was AWESOME!

this is a GREAT dessert recipe. i made it and my boyfriend couldn't believe it was homemade. it was my first true baking experience and a complete success. i had requests from friends and family to make another and another. my mother even requested one for her birthday instead of a cake. a definite try for holidays or special occasions!

This is defreakinglicious!! Rich, it is, but really good! I made this for Thanksgiving dinner along with 2 pumpkin pies. This was a winner. The only problem I had was the filling over flowed and really made a mess. I used a 9" deep dish crust as stated. This is why I rated this with 4 stars. For taste it has earned 5 stars! I came across this recipe the day before Thanksgiving and just had to try it. Will make it again but will use an even bigger pie plate.
