ROTW-Recipe of the Week: Salted Caramel Pecan Cheesecake Bars

I’ve decided to do ROTW, or Recipe of the Week(which I totally made up). Basically once a week I’ll share a recipe that I find by posting it here! And I just want to put out there that some of these recipes aren’t my own, I most likely found them on Pinterest. Like this one!

Well here’s the recipe and how to make them 🙂

Crust:
3/4 cup graham cracker crumbs
1/4 cup chopped pecans
1/4 cup butter, melted

Cheesecake:
1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup sour cream
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/3 cup caramel sauce

Topping:
1/4 cup chopped pecans
12-15 Kraft caramel candies
1 tablespoon milk or heavy cream
1/4 teaspoon coarse sea salt

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Stir together graham cracker crumbs, pecans, and butter; press into the bottom of a foil lined and lightly greased 8×8-inch baking pan.
Bake for 8 minutes.
Remove from oven, and cool on a wire rack.
Beat cream cheese at medium speed with an electric mixer until smooth.
Combine sugar and flour; gradually add to cream cheese, beating just until blended.
Add sour cream and caramel sauce.
Add egg, beating until blended.
Stir in vanilla.
Pour mixture over prepared crust, spreading evenly to edges of pan.
Bake at 350 degrees for 35 minutes or until set.
Remove from oven, and cool on a wire rack. Sprinkle pecans over cheesecake.
Chill for at least 2 hours.
Place caramel candies, salt, and milk in a microwave safe bowl.
Heat in 30 second intervals until melted and smooth.
Drizzle over cheesecake.

Stay tuned for next weeks ROTW!
