Default Mandarin Orange Cheesecake (Valentine's Day Recipes)




Prep Time: 1 - 2 hours | Cook Time: 3+ hours | Serves: 12


Dessert Cheesecakes American


Ingredients:




There is no flour in this recipe. The downside is that it takes longer to cook. A lot longer. From start to finish, with preparation, baking, and cooling, you'll need almost four hours. It is most definitely worth it.

I have made two of these now, and each time I've been told by the people who tasted it that this was the best cheesecake they had ever tasted. And I live in the Philly/NJ/New York area, so there's plenty of good cheesecake around. The orange flavor is subtle, but noticable. If you'd prefer to make the cheesecake without it, just omit all the steps related to anything orange-flavored, and the food coloring (which is optional anyway, but a nice touch).

You'll want:

- A Springform cake pan, 10" wide by 3" tall
- Aluminum foil
- Large mixing bowl
- Small mixing bowl
- Whisk
- Hand Mixer
- Grater
- Your favorite chef's knife

If you don't have a springform pan, get one. It's almost essential for cheesecake making, because it's about the only way you'll get it out of the pan intact. If you don't want to buy one, use a normal cake pan, and line the bottom with a round piece of parchment paper, and the sides with a strip of parchment paper.

Step 2:






First, set your oven to 300 degrees. Then, cube up

your cream cheese (this is the only thing you'll need the knife for)

and set it aside in your large work bowl. Doing this first will give

it a chance to soften. You can even place the work bowl in

a larger bowl or pan with warm water in it to help
things along.
Also, place the orange juice concentrate in a bowl

of hot water to help it thaw.

Step 3:





Next, prepare the springform pan by crossing two

sheets of aluminum foil over the insert. Rub the foil
flat over the insert, fold it over the edges, and put
the insert into the rest of the pan. Then fold the
foil up the edges (but not over into the pan). This
will help prevent leakage, and make removal of

the cake much easier.

Step 4:






Now to prepare the crust. First, take your 6 tbsp

of ****er (cut into 1 tbsp chunks) and melt it in the
microwave. Should only take about 30 seconds, stir
it up to dissolve any solid bits. Then place 10 graham

crackers in a thick ziplock bag.

Step 5:





And crush them mercilessly (until fine). You can use your

hands (but it'll take a while) or a rolling pin (if you've got one) or a glass bottle (like me).

Add the 3 tbsp of Sugar, and shake until well mixed. If

you have a food processor, by the way, these two steps

could be done in there. I like the bag method.
