This recipe came from Paula's Home Cooking. (I swear I gain 5 lbs. every time I watch the show..=0) I like this recipe because it is not as sweet/rich as a traditional pecan pie.Note: I took cake baker's advice and doubled the filling amounts.

I make this cheescake but I do double the filling recipe because otherwise it is rather thin. I also use a graham cracker crust instead. I am a baker and this one of the most popular cheesecake I sell.

This pie was wonderful. I found out that you need to chill it before cutting to set the pie.
