Recipe: Praline Pecan Cheesecake

This recipe for praline pecan cheesecake is sinfully good……..hmmmmmmmmm

I got this from one of those soft cover books from Pillsbury April 1993 entitled “Bake-Off Pies and Desserts”… although I have seen the recipe elsewhere… that is where I got it originally… I did substitute vanilla for rum extract… that was the only change I made…. It’s just wonderful.

This cheesecake is amazing!

Definitely a winner… enjoy!
