  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted

For the Cheesecake Layer:

  • 16 ounces (2 blocks) cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

For the Pecan Pie Layer:

  • 1 cup pecan halves
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup corn syrup (light or dark, according to your preference)
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • A pinch of salt


1. Preheat and Prepare:

  • Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease a 9-inch pie dish.

2. Crust Creation:

  • In a bowl, combine the graham cracker crumbs, granulated sugar, and melted butter. Mix until the crumbs are evenly coated with butter.

3. Press and Chill:

  • Press the mixture into the bottom and up the sides of the greased pie dish to form the crust.
  • Place the crust in the refrigerator to chill while you prepare the fillings.

4. Cheesecake Layer:

  • In a mixing bowl, beat the softened cream cheese and granulated sugar until smooth and creamy.
  • Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition.
  • Stir in the vanilla extract.
  • Pour the cheesecake mixture into the chilled crust.

5. Pecan Pie Layer:

  • Scatter the pecan halves evenly over the cheesecake layer.

6. Create the Pecan Pie Filling:

  • Carefully pour the pecan pie filling over the pecans and cheesecake layer.

8. Bake to Perfection:

  • Place the pie in the preheated oven and bake for 45-50 minutes, or until the center is set and the top is golden brown. You can use a pie shield or aluminum foil to cover the edges of the crust if it starts to brown too quickly.

9. Cool and Chill:

  • Allow the pie to cool completely at room temperature, then refrigerate it for a few hours or overnight to set.

10. Slice and Serve:

  • Slice your delightful Pecan Cheesecake Pie into wedges and serve chilled. Optionally, you can add a dollop of whipped cream or a scoop of vanilla ice cream for extra indulgence.
