Peach Praline Cheesecake

"I received pecan pralines for a gift one year so I used them to make this delicious cheesecake for one of my cousin's graduations that I helped to cater and everyone loved it."

1 cup graham cracker crumbs
3 Tablespoons sugar
3 Tablespoons butter, melted
5-6 pecan pralines, crushed*

Combine crumbs, sugar and butter. Press onto the bottom of a 9-inch springform pan that has been sprayed with non-stick cooking spray. Bake at 325 degrees for 10 minutes. Remove from oven and sprinkle with crushed pralines. Top with filling.

3 (8 ounce) packages of cream cheese, softened
3/4 cup sugar
3 Tablespoons flour
3 eggs
1 (16 ounce) can of peaches, drained and pureed
1/4 cup Grand Marnier or Triple Sec (orange flavored liqueur)

Combine cream cheese, sugar and flour. Mix with an electric mixer on medium speed until well blended. Add eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each one. Add pureed peaches and liqueur. Mix well. Pour over pralines and crust. Bake at 450 degrees for 10 minutes. Lower the oven to 250 degrees and continue baking for 1 hour and 5 minutes. Remove from the oven and allow to cool completely on a cooling rack. Refrigerate for approximately 4 hours before removing rim of springform pan. When ready to serve, remove rim of pan. Top each slice of cheesecake with a slice of peach that has been macerated or soaked in orange liqueur and some crushed pralines.
