I made an awsome cheesecake for Thanksgiving. A coworker of mine wanted teh recipie, so i'm putting it here.

Carmel nut cheese cake.

2 cups grahm cracker crumbs.
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup crushed peanuts
1 stick of butter, melted (8 tablespoons)

Mix ingredents together and press into a FOIL LINED 13 x 9 baking pan.

Bake for 10 minutes at 350.

Filling and topping:

4 8 ounce bars of cream cheese, softened
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 c. sugar
1 c. sour cream
4 eggs

1 jar carmel ice cream topping.
1/2 c nuts

Mix cream cheese, vanilla and sugar until well blended.

Add sour cream. Mix until well blended.

Add eggs, one at a time, just until blended.

Pour into pan, bake for about 35 minutes at 350.

A cooked cheesecake should still jiggle in the center when its done. I had to bake mine for 40 minutes.

Let cool completely, then put in the refigerator for 4 hours.

Once set, pour carmel topping on cake, add nuts. Although, you could top with anything you like -- next time i'm going to use strawberrys. I still recomend the nuts in the crust though, it gave it a good flavor.
