It’s seriously hard to believe Thanksgiving is this week, and suddenly Christmas is only a month away!

I love this time of year. I just wish it would slow down a little bit! If it were my decision, I would put my Christmas decorations out on November 1st, because I want to enjoy the season as long as possible! And let’s face it, once Christmas is over, it just becomes a chore to put everything away.

However, my husband is all about ONE HOLIDAY at a time. No decorations before Thanksgiving.

Fortunately, I’ve got all my kids on my team, and we secretly sneak items onto coffee tables, end tables and our mantel.

This year though, BONUS, my husband traveled for work last week. Our motto was, “when Scrooge is away the family will play.” We pulled out ALL but the Christmas tree. haha, surprise!!

I’m married to a wonderful man, he took it quite well. Actually, I think maybe he liked that he didn’t have to help.

But, we are hosting Thanksgiving in our house, so I do have to hammer down and focus on that holiday (even though my house is decorated for Christmas). I blame it all on blogging. We start recipe testing peppermint recipes in July you guys. I’ve got Valentine’s recipes under my belt for 2016. The struggle is real.

Needless to say, these Pecan Pie Cheesecake Bars are the perfect THANKSGIVING treat. Or any holiday really. They are layered with a thick graham cracker crust, creamy cheesecake center and then topped with a gooey, caramelized pecan pie layer (made with Karo light corn syrup) on top!

Yield: 24 large bars

Pecan Pie Cheesecake Bars

Prep Time 4 hours 30 minutes
Cook Time 35 minutes


For the crust:

  • 2 1/2 cup graham cracker crumbs (about 18 full size grahams)
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted

For the cheesecake layer:

  • 2 packages (8 oz each) cream cheese, softened
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

For the pecan pie layer:

  • 1 cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 1/2 cup KARO light corn syrup

KARO light corn syrup

  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 cups Fisher Pecan Halves, chopped


  1. Line a 13x9 baking dish with parchment paper. Set aside.
  2. In a food processor, pulse graham crackers with sugar until fine crumbs. Add in melted butter and pulse until combined. Press into bottom of baking dish, firmly, using the palm of your hand (or bottom of a cup). Set aside.
  3. For the cheesecake filling, beat cream cheese with sugar, eggs, and vanilla using the whisk attachment of an electric mixer. Beat until fluffy and smooth (about 3-5 minutes). Pour over graham crust. Set aside.
  4. For the pecan pie layer, heat brown sugar, KARO corn syrup, cream, butter and salt in a small saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a boil. Stirring constantly, boil for 1 full minute. Remove from heat and add in vanilla and chopped pecans. Allow to cool slightly then pour slowly over cheesecake layer, using a spoon to pour it over so it doesn't sink to the bottom.
  5. Bake bars in a 350 degree oven for 35 minutes. Remove from oven and cool completely.
  6. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 4 hours, or overnight. Slice and enjoy!

Comments & Reviews

  1. I just made this today and it came out PERFECT!!!! I was so nervous because I’m not a baker but I can follow a recipe haha! And it came out awesome! I followed this exactly as you specified and it’s a hit! Thanks so much!!

  2. I love the recipe for the pecan cheesecake bars, but could you find a way to help those who are diabetic to be able to enjoy this also

  3. Pecan Pie Cheesecake Bars were the hit of our Thanksgiving dinner! My grandson even asked for the recipe, the highest of compliments. Your creation is now a part of our traditions. Thanks so much!

  4. Thank you for this delicious recipe! This was the first time I made a dessert that was not cookies or a snack cake. I followed your directions almost entirely (I missed the part about chopping the pecans). It came out perfect!

  5. Follow up — I was able to get bars out, phew…. just could not salvage one side of each pan, just a few. Lesson learned — line bottom and sides. Bars are delicious!!!

  6. I used the glass baking dish (Pyrex), lined with parchment and sprayed with non-stick spray. The crust is stuck to the bottom, so can only scoop the cheesecake/pecan pie mixture. The mixture (sorry, can’t call it bars, as they are scoops) tastes yummy but presentation is awful…. 🙁

    Any ideas on how I managed to mess this up? I made two batches and planned to take one to potluck but now have to find something else to bring, as this stuff is too messy.

    1. If I try again, I think I will use the springform pan and line it with foil, as suggested above. Then at least I can try to peel the foil instead of scraping stuff out… 🙁 Or maybe line both sides and bottom with foil, to allow flipping over and peeling. Anyway, sounds from comments that I am not the only one who struggled, so please update the recipe.

  7. I’ll be making these but will also do a pie. Some of my guests don’t eat nuts, likely because of false teeth, so I have to accommodate all.
    When my kids were young, I put up some decorations, however, Santa Claus ALWAYS brought the decorated tree. Putting tinsel on the tree one strand at a time made a beautiful sigh5, but also a very tired mommy!
