EASIEST PECAN CHEESECAKE
With a quick toasting of the pecans, and some extra thick store-bought caramel paired with cream cheese frosting, your eyes and taste buds are in for a treat.
PECAN CHEESECAKE INGREDIENTS
- Sara Lee Frozen Cheesecake, Thawed
- 1 cup cream cheese frosting
- 1.5 cups whole pecans, toasted
- 1/3 cup thick caramel
Tools: Star tip for frosting
To toast your pecans, spray some non-stick spray on a baking sheet or parchment paper before spreading them out. Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 5-7 minutes or until desired toastiness is achieved. Let them cool briefly before assembling your delish creation.
On your defrosted Sara Lee Frozen Cheesecake, use a star tip to pipe your cream cheese frosting around the entire cheesecake. Then carefully place your toasted pecans in the center, filling up the entire space. Then, add a final cream cheese frosting touch to the center of the cake. Lastly, drizzle the thick and glorious caramel over the entire cake evenly.
Voila! You have a delish cheesecake that is quite perfect for any occasion or holiday table this fall. By the way, there’s a reason they call Sara Lee Frozen Cheesecake America’s favorite cheesecake! It’s delish! It has quality ingredients and is frozen fresh.
