    This is an amazing recipe! Anyone I've ever served this to has been amazed, many have said it is gourmet bakery quality...inspite of the dirty little secret. :) (a store-bought pecan pie...egads!!!!!) Please don't pay attention to the 2 star rating...this one is over the top good.

    Everyone I've made this for loves it! I always double the crust recipe to make it extra thick. You could also use pumpkin pie instead of pecan pie. Every year my family asks me to bring this to our holiday gathering!

    This recipe is worth making, just utilize these tips: (1) make in no larger than 9" springform; (2) Mrs. Smith does not make a pecan pie any longer, just buy an inexpensive grocery bakery pie (better if it is chilled for cutting purposes); (3) utilize 3 eggs; and lastly (4) bake in a water bath.

    This cheesecake has always gotten rave reviews whenever I make it and I've been making it since it won back in 2003. I don't know who gave it the 2-star rating, but they should have their head examined :-).

    Would make again, was very good. Someone suggested a 9" pan, but it seemed a little snall, so I used a 9 1/2 inch, and it came out perfect.
