Step 1:

Preheat the oven to 325Β°F.

Stir constantly until well blended, simmer until thickened.

Pour the pecan filling into the prepared crust and set aside.

Step 3:

Whisk cream cheese and sugar, add salt and flour.

Incorporate vanilla, eggs (one at a time), and sour creamβ€”avoid overmixing.

Pour the cheesecake mixture over the pecan filling in the pan.

Wrap the bottom of the springform pan tightly with aluminum foil, placing it in a larger pan for a water bath.

Bake for 1 hour until the cheesecake is slightly jiggly.

Step 4:

Turn off the oven, leave the cheesecake for 30 minutes, then crack the door and leave it for an additional 30 minutes to cool.

Once cooled, wrap the cheesecake tightly in plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight.

Step 5:

Remove the cheesecake from the springform pan the next day.

Step 6:

In a skillet, melt butter and brown sugar, simmer for 2-3 minutes until thickened.

Remove from heat, stir in heavy cream and vanilla.

Spread this layer on the cheesecake.
