Instructions

For the crust

  • Graham cracker crumbs, pecans that have been finely chopped, and sugars should be mixed together in a bowl of medium size.
  • Add the butter that has been melted to the mixture of crumbs, and mix it until the crumbs are moistened.
  • In a springform pan measuring 9 inches in diameter, press the mixture in an even manner onto the bottom and up the sides.

For the cheesecake

  • Preheat the oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit (165 degrees Celsius).
  • The cream cheese and granulated sugar should be mixed together in a large mixing bowl.

 

  • If you want the mixture to be smooth, creamy, and free of lumps, use an electric mixer and beat it on medium speed.
  • Mix the vanilla extract and sour cream together on a low speed until they are completely incorporated.

  • The eggs should be lightly beaten with a fork in a separate bowl, and then they should be added to the cheesecake batter one at a time, each time mixing on low speed until they are just combined.
  • Before proceeding, make sure that all of the ingredients are thoroughly combined by scraping the sides and bottom of the bowl.

 

  • Half of the cheesecake batter should be poured into the crust that has been prepared.
  • Pour a quarter cup (59 millilitres) of caramel sauce over the batter in an even manner, and then proceed to cover it with the remaining cheesecake batter.

  • After placing the pan on the middle rack of the oven that has been preheated, bake the cheesecake for fifty to fifty-five minutes, or until it is almost completely set (the centre will be semi-liquid like Jell-O, and the edges may puff up slightly).
  • First, turn off the oven, then crack the door a few inches, and then wait one hour for the cheesecake to cool down inside the oven.

 

  • Immediately remove the cheesecake from the oven and allow it to cool at room temperature until it has reached the desired level of coolness.
  • After that, drizzle the remaining caramel sauce over the top of the cheesecake and place it in the refrigerator to chill for a period of six hours or overnight.

  • After the cheesecake has been completely chilled, remove the springform ring, and if you so desire, sprinkle flaky sea salt over the surface of the cheesecake.
  • After that, slice the cheesecake and take it to the table. The springform ring should be reattached and covered with foil before being stored.

Notes

Pecans

  • Pecans can be measured either before or after they have been chopped. You can actually chop them, or I’ve also had success placing them in a plastic baggie and smacking them with a rolling pin or the back of a spoon until they are fine.
  • Both of these methods are described in the previous sentence. Simply omitting the pecans is all that is required to make a cheesecake that does not contain nuts.

 

Caramel sauce

  • I strongly suggest that you make your own caramel sauce by using the recipe that I provided for the caramel topping.

Storing

  • For up to five days, store the food in the refrigerator with the lid on.
