Pecan Pie Cheesecake Recipe

The better the quality of the bourbon you use, the better the flavor in both the cheesecake and the sauce. For a simpler dessert, skip the cheesecake and serve the delectable sauce over pound cake or ice cream. I have been making cheesecakes for a long time but this took my breath away and it is scrumptious! ­čśë
