A delicious no-bake cheese cake with a delicious baked pecan crust of your choosing, topped with a brown sugar pecan topping.



  1. Make the crust of your choosing at one of the above links; set aside to cool.
  2. To Make the Cheesecake Filling:
  3. Add 1 teaspoon gelatin to 2 tablespoons room temperature water, stir, and allow to rest for 1 minute.
  4. Add 2 tablespoons boiling water, stir; set aside to cool.
  5. To the bowl of your mixer, add softened cream cheese. Beat on medium speed until creamy.
  6. Add confectioners’ sugar, and beat on low just until sugar stops flying around. Then increase speed to medium and mix until thoroughly combined.
  7. Pour in the cream and vanilla and beat until fluffy.
  8. Add the gelatin mixture and beat until combined.
  9. Scoop the cheesecake filling into the cooled pie crust. Refrigerate until set and chilled, about 2 hours.
  10. Top with a mixture of ground pecans, chopped pecans, and brown sugar. I like to press some into the crust. Slice and serve.



You can also add pieces of Soft Caramel into the filling here and there.
