For the topping, butter (½ cup), brown sugar alternative (3 tablespoons), heavy whipping cream (½ cup), maple extract (1 teaspoon), and additional pecans as desired. See post for my crust recipe or use your own.


    • Prepare the crust as indicated in the directions or using your own recipe. Preheat your oven to 400.
      Make sure that you pan is wrapped in foil before starting the crust.
    • In a mixing bowl, beat together the cream cheese until smooth and creamy. Then add the eggs, one at a time, beating between additions.
      Next, mix in the sour cream and vanilla extract. Lastly, fold in the chopped pecans using a rubber spatula or similar item.
      Transfer this mixture to the prepared crust, evenly distributing it over the crust.
    • Bake the cheesecake in the oven for 10 minutes and then take the temperature down to 300 and continue to bake for another 60-70 minutes or until almost set but, with a 'jiggly' center.
      Turn off the oven, slightly open the door, and let the cake set in the oven for an hour. After removing the cheesecake from the oven, allow the cheesecake to sit at room temperature for about an hour before preparing the topping.
