    Claire #3's Note:

    This is the recipe that won $100,000 in Southern Living's Annual 2002 recipe contest. Do you think it's worth $100,000???? I changed it a bit by baking it in a water bath and it is VERY smooth and creamy.

      The cheesecake part was not that tasty to me. I used my own private cheesecake recipe which calls for 6 packages of cream cheese, etc. Since I have an aversion to using frozen pies/pie crusts of any kind , I made my own pecan pie and cut off the excess crust. Then I placed it in the cheesecake. The flaky crust of mine was much better tasting than the greasy, preserved tasting frozen pie full of chemicals. Also, I felt the graham cracker crust seemed to "fight" flavors with the richness of the pecan pie, so I used a butter/sugar/flour with a hint of lemon peel crust. It complimented the flavors tremendously and gave depth to the concoction. On the top of the cheesecake, I drizzle caramel sauce over the flat cake area, topping it with very few pecans. If you put so many pecans on top, then you lose the "Surprise!" of the pecan pie locked in the cheesecake's inner sanctum. This is worth the time, but do not waste your time by using frozen pies. You are too good of a cook to cheapen your abilities.

      wonderful recipe, pecan pie on top of cheesecake, what decadence. I used an Edwards pecan pie and trimmed all of the crust that I could. I always make my cheesecake and icebox pies using vanilla wafers and a little brown sugar for the crust. I love this site, so many good ideas from so many good cooks.

      This is a family favorite. I usually keep the pecan pie frozen because is is easier to work with. I also cut off the crust.
