Two Celebrations

Happy Father's Day DAD and Happy Birthday NICK (20 years)! Very rarely do these fall on the same year, but this year it did! 

For dessert I found a recipe from Plain Chicken, a blog that I follow. I actually saw this online a few months ago and knew I had to make it for dad. His favorite dessert is Pecan Pie, so to spice it up I made Chocolate Cheesecake Pecan Pie!

1 pie crust
1 (8-oz.) package milk chocoalte cream cheese, softened 
4 large eggs, divided 
6 Tbsp sugar, divided
2 teaspoons vanilla extract, divided 
1/4 teaspoon salt 
1 1/4 cups chopped pecans 
1 cup light corn syrup 

Preheat oven to 350.
Put the pie crust in a deep dish pie pan. Beat cream cheese, 1 egg, 2 Tbsp sugar, 1 tsp. vanilla, and salt at medium speed with an electric mixer until smooth. Pour cream cheese mixture into piecrust; sprinkle evenly with chopped pecans. Whisk together corn syrup and remaining 3 eggs, 4 Tbsp sugar, and 1 tsp. vanilla; pour mixture over pecans. 
Place pie on a baking sheet. Bake for 50 to 55 minutes or until pie is set. Cool on a wire rack 1 hour or until completely cool. Refrigerate after leftovers.

Happy 20th Birthday Nick!
I wonder what his wish was?

Would you like a piece?
Half gone, must mean it was good!
