1/4 lb. pecan pieces, finely ground

Cheesecake Filling:
6 pkg. (8 oz. each) cream cheese
8 egg yolks plus 1 whole egg
2 tablespoons roast garlic puree
1 lime
pinch of Fresh herbs

Prepare the crust by finely grinding pecan pieces in a food processor.

In a large mixing bowl, combine all ingredients for the crust and incorporate until crumbs hold a shape. Set aside.

To prepare cheesecake filling, bring cream cheese to room temperature.

In a mixer or large mixing bowl, incorporate eggs, one at a time, into the cream cheese.

Add roast garlic puree, incorporating well, and fresh herbs; such as thyme, oregano, basil, etc. Add the juice of one lime and adjust the seasonings with salt and ground black pepper. Set aside.

Line a 9-inch springform pan with pecan-graham crust, making sure to go all the way up the sides. Pour cheesecake filling into prepared springform pan, being careful not to crumble the sides.

Place cheesecake in a 300 degree F oven for 45 minutes to 1 hour or until tester comes clean. Let cool for at least 3-4 hours before cutting (can be prepared one day in

advance). Serve with Ancho Chile and Mango Jam.

Ancho Mango Jam:

5 Ancho Chilies (seeds included)

Ancho Jam will keep refrigerated 1-3 months.
