2 cups crushed shortbread cookies
3 TBS butter, melted
1/4 cup plus 2 TBS flour, divided
1-1/2 cups homemade caramel sauce
1 cup pecans, chopped
5 pkg (8oz) cream cheese, at room temperature

In a small bowl, combine cookie crumbs and butter. Press onto the bottom and 1″ up the sides of a greased 10 inch springform pan. Place pan on a baking sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 8 to10 minutes or until set. Lower the oven temperature to 325 degrees. Cool on a wire rack.

Meanwhile, in a small bowl, stir 1/4 cup flour into the caramel topping. Set aside 1/3 cup caramel mixture and 2 tablespoons pecans for garnish. Drizzle remaining caramel mixture over crust; sprinkle with remaining pecans.

In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese, sugar vanilla and remaining flour until smooth. Beat in eggs and yolks just until combined. Stir in cream. Pour over crust. Bake at 325 degrees for 65-70 minutes or until center is almost set.

In a small bowl, combine sour cream and sugar; carefully spread over warm filling. Bake 10-12 minutes longer or until topping is set. Cool on a wire rack for 10 minutes. Carefully run a knife around edge of pan to loosen; cool 1 hour longer.
