A subtle orange-flavored filling contrasts nicely with a chocolate-crumb crust. Family and friends always comment on the wonderful flavor and color.—Audrey Thibodeau, Gilbert, Arizona

MAKES: 8 servings


  • 1 cup chocolate wafer crumbs
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 1 envelope unflavored gelatin
  • 3 packages (8 ounces each) cream cheese, softened
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream, whipped
  • 1 tablespoon grated orange peel
  • Mini chocolate chips and sliced orange wedges, optional


  1. Combine crumbs and butter; press onto the bottom of an ungreased 9-in. springform pan. Bake at 350° for 10 minutes. Cool.
  2. In a saucepan, combine orange juice and gelatin; let stand for 5 minutes. Cook and stir over low heat until gelatin is dissolved. Cool for 10 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, in a bowl, beat cream cheese and sugar until light and fluffy; gradually add gelatin mixture. Beat on low until well mixed. Chill until partially set, about 3 minutes (watch carefully-mixture will set up quickly).
  4. Gently fold in whipped cream and orange peel. Spoon into the crust. Chill for 6 hours or overnight. Just before serving, run a knife around edge of pan to loosen. Remove sides of pan. Garnish with chocolate chips and oranges if desired. Yield: 8 servings.

"I've made this a couple of times and then lot the recipe, but remembered the name. It's very good and the folks who tried it enjoyed it very much. A nice Spring/Summer treat."
