Praline Cheesecake Squares



  1. For crust, in a large bowl combine flour, melted butter, the 2/3 cup finely chopped pecans, and the powdered sugar; mix well. Press mixture into the bottom of a 13x9x2-inch baking pan. Bake in a 350 degree F oven for 15 to 20 minutes or until crust is set and light golden brown around the edges.
  2. Meanwhile, for filling, in a large mixing bowl beat cream cheese with an electric mixer on low to medium speed until smooth. Add eggs; beat well. Beat in sweetened condensed milk, granulated sugar, and the 2 teaspoons vanilla. Pour filling over baked crust. Bake in a 350 degree F oven for 35 to 40 minutes until set. Cool in pan on a wire rack.
  3. For topping, in a medium saucepan combine brown sugar and whipping cream. Cook and stir over medium heat until mixture boils; reduce heat. Simmer, uncovered, for 10 minutes. Remove from heat. Stir in the 1 cup chopped pecans and the 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla. Pour topping over cheesecake. Cover and chill for 2 to 24 hours before serving. Cut into squares. Makes 48 servings.
