TOASTED PECAN SAUCE
Heat oven to 350 degrees. In medium bowl, combine all the crust ingredients; mix well. Press in bottom of 10 inch spring-form pan.
In large bowl, combine cream cheese, sugar, flour; beat until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add remaining ingredients; beat until well blended. Pour into crust-lined pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 50-60 minutes or until center is set. Cool. Refrigerate for several hours or overnight.
Shortly before serving, carefully remove sides of pan.
Top each slice with Toasted Pecan Sauce.
Hint: To minimize cracking, place shallow pan half full of hot water on lower oven rack during baking.

Remove from heat. Stir in toasted pecans. Makes 2-¼ cups of sauce.
