To make the cheesecake layer:

  • Pie crust
  • Vanilla cream cheese 8 ounces Make sure that it is soft
  • Granulated sugar half cup
  • Egg 1

To make the pecan layer:

  • Pecans 1 cup
  • Vanilla extract 1 teaspoon
  • Butter unsalted half cup melted in the microwave
  • Granulated sugar 2 and a half cups
  • Dark corn syrup ⅔ cup
  • Eggs 2


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees while you prepare your baking or pie pan. It should be non-sticky so you can put parchment paper or grease it with oil.
  • Add the pie crust to the pan you are using for baking and crimp the edges. Keep it in the fridge while you are working on your other ingredients.
  • In a beater add the cream cheese and granulated sugar. Mix it well for 2 minutes and then add the egg in it. Put this creamy mixture on top of the crust that we have put in the refrigerator.
  • Take another bowl and add the syrup, eggs, sugar, butter, and vanilla extract. Add the pecans as well and put them on the cheesecake layer. It is the top layer because it has the sweet taste of syrup that will make you love this pie.
  • Ensure that your pie is covered in foil so it does not get burned because of overheating.
  • Bake it for 5 minutes and then you can drizzle some condensed milk if you like once you have cool it for 2 hours.

    • Erica

      I noticed that typo too! Cook time says 50 minutes at the top of the recipe.

    • debra m horne

      i saw that it says cook time is 50 mins then it says cook for 5 mins

    • Sam

      I believe it’s supposed to be “50 minutes” because the top of the recipe card says cook time 50 minutes. I believe it was a typo.

    How can it cook in 5 minutes? That doesn’t seem right. The egg would not be cooked.

  7. gayle

    Five Minutes?????

  8. Joe Lujan

    Thank you

    The cheesecake layer seems like it would be very thin. Would it be possible to double the ingredients to make a more substantial Cheesecake layer? If so would the bake time which I assume would be 50min (or why wrap in foil) need to be extended?

    I am cooking this pie now. It doesn’t fit into a regular size pie pan. It was to late to separate it into 2 because of the layers. I have let it bake 50 minutes and it’s not done. Very poor cooking instructions.

  12. bessie jackson

    Ithink there was a mistake in the amount of sugar. was too sweet

    Ummm, mine did not rise up like the picture shows but still tasted fine. The recipe on the fb page says 4 eggs but the actual recipe calls for 3, not sure if that made a difference. Also it was still soupy at even 50 minutes…after it ran out of the pan all over the bottom of my oven,, and then burned on the edges. Again, still tasted okay. Prob won’t make again.

    2 questions..

    is this saying to bake 50 minutes
    and with foil on entire pie
    or just the crust?

    5 stars with some side notes! Very tasty! My family loved it! The side notes: 1) the pecan layer made enough for 2 pies! So instead of throwing it out, I quickly whipped up another pie. This is where I learned 2) putting the creamy mixture in the fridge is a VERY IMPORTANT step. The creamy mixture on second pie (the one not placed in the fridge) did not hold up to the pecan layer…was too soft. Thankfully, I put a baking sheet under both pies before baking! 3) both pies spilled over; the second pie much more than the first. Both pies were delicious but for some reason the 2nd pie’s crust caramalized with the spillage and was very tough to slice. 4) There is a typo in the instructions on the cooking time. It should read cook for 50 minutes (or longer in my case). All of that being said, this pie is delicious and was well received! Next time, and there will be a next time, I will cut the pecan mixture recipe in half! Thank you for this delicious recipe!

    I tried this recipe, and the baking time is all off that isn’t enough time to cook the crust. I ended baking mine for like 30 minutes and it still didn’t come out right even after setting in fridge overnight, it did not set. The cheesecake part did, but the pecan pie part stayed runny. I DID follow the recipe other than baking time. So I was not impressed in fact I was very disappointed.

    Love the idea of this pie but this recipe is not one I like or would make again. Too much sugar, needed 1 c or so instead of 2.5. Made a sugar cube consistency with the crust. 50 minutes wasn’t long enough to bake, I baked mine 65 minutes and it was still goopy
