Turtle Cheesecake Pie

Turtle Cheesecake Pie - pecans, chocolate chips, caramel ice cream topping, cream cheese, sugar, eggs, sour cream baked in a frozen pie shell. CRAZY good! So simple to make. The hardest part is waiting on it to chill in the fridge before eating. It was pure torture! We inhaled this pie. Really simple and delicious! Recipe from legendary golfer Jack Nicklaus' family.

Today is the first official day of The Masters. I thought it would be fun to share a recipe from legendary golfer Jack Nicklaus. Jack and his wife recently came out with a cookbook of their family recipes. I immediately ordered it. I mean, who doesn't want to know what the Golden Bear eats? LOL! There are ton of easy recipes in the book. The Nicklaus family eats good, simple food. Nothing fancy in the book. Perfect for us.

I finally decided on the Caramel Chocolate Pecan Pie recipe. It has chocolate chips, pecans, caramel ice cream topping and a delicious cheesecake filling. It is CRAZY delicious! It only takes a couple of minutes to assemble. This takes about an hour to bake and then you have to let it refrigerate for about an hour. Pure torture!! Torture! Once we could finally taste this, OMG, SO good! It is really one of the best pies we've eaten. Can't wait to try some more of Jack Nicklaus' recipes!
