24 servings

Crust ingredients:
1 1/4 cups flour
1/2 cup melted butter
1/3 cup finely chopped pecans
1 Tbsp. powdered sugar

In a large bowl combine crust ingredients. Mix well then press into the bottom of an 8x8 baking dish. Bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes or until crust is set and light golden brown around the edges.

Cheesecake ingredients:
12 oz. softened cream cheese
2 eggs
2/3 cup sweetened condensed milk
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1 tsp. vanilla

In a large mixing bike beat cream cheese with an electric mixwe on low to medium speed until smooth. Add eggs; beat well. Beat in sweetened condensed milk, granulated sugar and vanilla.  Pour over baked crust. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 35 to 40 minutes until set. Cool in pan on a wire rack.

Topping ingredients:
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup whipping cream
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1 tsp. vanilla

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 chopped pecans and vanilla. Pour over cheesecake. Cover and chill for 2 to 24 hours before serving. Cut into 1 1/2-2 inch squares.
*To make a regular 9x13 pan just double the recipe.

***OH HEAVEN!! I first had this yummy dessert at a baby shower that was thrown for me 7 years ago. I of course asked for the recipe from my friend. It has become the dessert that I request for Mother's Day. And just maybe I will share with those close by!
