How to make it

  • Pastry:
  • Place flour, sugar, butter, sugar and salt into a large mixing bowl.
  • Mix with a pastry blender until it resembles "oatmeal".
  • Add the lemon juice, cutting it in with a fork.
  • Add enough water so that it stays together when crushed in your hand.
  • Roll out and fit it into a 9-inch deep dish pie pan with fluted edges.
  • Cheese layer:
  • Place cream cheese, sugar, salt, vanilla, and egg into a mixing bowl.
  • Beat until smooth.
  • Pour into unbaked pie shell and top with pecans.
  • Caramel layer:
  • Mix together brown sugar, corn syrup and eggs.
  • Do NOT, however, mix throughly!!
  • Pour over top of the cheese/pecan layer.
  • Bake at 375 degrees for 30-35 minutes, or until the cheese layer no longer "shakes" and a toothpick or knife comes out clean and dry.
  • Cool.
