~Knock Your Socks off Turtle Cheesecake~

Crust:
1 1/2 cups of all purpose flour
2 tbsp. brown sugar
3/4 real butter (room temperature at least)
3/4 cup chopped pecans

To make crust: mix stir all ingredients together, blending them very
well.

Press them into the bottom of a baking pan evenly (springform pan
works the best). It should be baked at 350 degrees for 15 minutes.
Let it rest for about 20 minutes.

Caramel Layer:
3 tbsp light cream
32 caramels
1 1/2 chopped pecans, slightly toasted

To make caramel layer: heat caramels and cream in a sauce pan over
medium heat until smooth. Pour this liquid layer over the cooled
crust, sprinkle the top with the pecans.

Cream Cheese Layer:
3* 8 ounce packages of Philadelphia Cream Cheese softened
1 cup of Brown Sugar
2 tbsp of flour
3 large eggs
3 cups of creamed cottage cheese
3 tsp. of vanilla

To make cream cheese layer: Cream together cream cheese and brown
sugar. Beat flour in and eggs one at a time. You can then add the
cottage cheese and vanilla. Beat until low until it all combines
quite well.
Pour over the last layer you laid in the pan. Bake it all in the oven
for about 1 hour at 350
Remove from heat and let it sit for about an hour. Cool the cake
completely before removing from the pan.

Topping:
1 1/2 cups of whipping cream
11 squares of chocolate, roughly chopped
1 cup of toasted pecans

To make topping for Turtle Cheesecake: heat cream in sauce pan over
medium heat until simmering. Add chocolate and stir until combines.
Turn heat off and let it cool slightly. When it is lukewarm pour over
cheesecake. Sprinkle pecans on top of the cake.
