Ingredients
  • Nonstick cooking spray, for spraying the pan
  • 1 cup graham cracker crumbs
  • 3 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 3 tablespoons salted butter, melted
  • Three 8-ounce packages cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup firmly packed dark brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 3 large eggs, at room temperature
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped pecans
Directions
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line the bottom of a 9-by-9-inch square pan with parchment paper and spray with cooking spray.

  • In a medium bowl, combine the crumbs, granulated sugar and melted butter and press into the bottom of the prepared pan. Bake until browned, 8 to 10 minutes. Set aside.

  • Increase the oven temperature to 450 degrees F and make the filling.

  • Using an electric mixer, beat the cream cheese until fluffy, then add the brown sugar and flour. Add the eggs 1 at a time, beating well after each addition. Add the vanilla. Fold in the chopped pecans.

  • Pour the batter into the crust and bake for 10 minutes. Reduce the oven temperature to 250 degrees F and bake until slightly browned on top, an additional 50 minutes. Allow to cool completely, about 20 minutes, then refrigerate for at least 2 hours. Cut into 9 bars before serving.
