Well, that sounds incredibly evil and sinful.

I'll make it as soon as possible!

That recipe made my mouth water! I LOVE pecans! and I LOVE cheesecakes - almost all of them!

Now when I use them in any recipe I always toast them lightly first... it enhances their flavour.

Do you think I could replace the margarine with butter?

Thank you!
