2 cups pecans, finely chopped
2 tablespoons packed brown sugar
1/4 cup butter, melted
4 packages cream cheese -- (8 ounce size) softened
2 cups packed brown sugar
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 cup bourbon
4 eggs, slightly beaten
4 ounces semisweet chocolate, melted


Preheat oven to 350°F.

For crust: In a small bowl, combine pecans, the 2 tablespoons brown sugar, and the melted butter. Press onto bottom of a 9-inch springform pan. Bake about 10 minutes or until nuts are toasted. Cool on a wire rack while preparing filling.

For filling: In a very large bowl, combine cream cheese, the 2 cups brown sugar, the flour, and vanilla. Beat with an electric mixer on medium speed until combined. Beat in bourbon until smooth. Using a wooden spoon, stir in eggs just until combined.

Pour filling into crust-lined pan; place in a shallow baking pan. Bake about 1 hour or until center appears nearly set when gently shaken. Cool in springform pan on wire rack 15 minutes. Using a small thin knife, loosen crust from side of pan. Cool 30 minutes more.

Remove side of pan. Cool 1 hour. Cover; chill at least 6 hours or up to 24 hours. Drizzle chocolate over cheesecake. Let stand a few minutes.
