Autumn Nut Cheesecake With Glazed Pecan Topping is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from This was a big hit. I make cheesecakes all the time but this one got tons of rave reviews. The nuts and the glazed pecan topping is what threw it over the top. Then you add the orange flavor to give it a citrusy aroma. If you love cheesecake I highly recommend this recipe. It's a keeper!
