Recipe by Muffin Goddess
READY IN: 1hr 10mins
SERVES: 8-12




  • Preheat oven to 300 degrees F.
  • Combine crust ingredients in a small bowl.
  • Press mixture into a 9- or 10- inch springform pan.
  • Bake for 10 minutes in preheated oven.
  • When crust is done, remove from oven and set aside.
  • Increase oven temperature to 325 degrees F.
  • Combine cream cheese, brown sugar, evaporated milk, flour, and vanilla in a large mixing bowl; beat well.
  • Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.
  • Pour filling mixture into baked crust.
  • Bake at 325 degrees F for 50 minutes (center of cheesecake should still be slightly wobbly).
  • Cool cheesecake completely (using whatever preferred method; everyone has their own).
  • Before serving, paint the top with maple syrup and arrange whole pecans in a decorative pattern on top (I usually do it in such a way as to have one pecan per slice).
  • Cover and refrigerate leftovers.
