If you love pecan pie this cheesecake is amazing! so your cheesecake wont crack i wrap the pan with foil and sit in a hot water bath while it bakes. or you can fill another pan with hot water and put it on the bottom rack below your cheesecake.


PS. to add a bit extra to you cheesecake, when cake has cooled add a good whipped topping to it and serve.
