I just saw this on a cooking show on TV this morning. Butter pecan is one of my favorite flavors, and the minute this came on the TV I started scribbling.

Good, very thick and creamy. I coated my pecans with caramel sauce (used Best Ever Caramel Sauce #93057)and threw them into the mix, as well as, topping my cheesecake. Update - I used a slightly different crust - 1 cup graham crackers, 1/2 cup pecans (finely chopped), 1/4 cup butter,3 tbsp sugar, 1 tsp cinnammon and a pinch of nutmeg.
