    LOL yeah over 500 calories per serving, and it says serves 6-8 so if you cut it for 6 servings, the numbers are considerably worse.

    I think I will make them all for Xmas heh

    I absolutely love butter pecan ice cream. I was thinking the 1st recipe as well, but I was going to add a couple tablespoons of butter buds (flavor substitute), and use brown sugar with the cream cheese, plus say 1/4 or 1/3 cup fine chopped pecans. The cheesecake layer is fine I suppose, but I wanted to turn it into sort of a praline cheesecake layer. The rest of the recipe and instructions I would follow closely.
