Orange Cream Cheesecake
Total TimePrep: 25 min. + chilling
This looks like a perfect cheesecake for Easter! Can I make it ahead and freeze it?
This is an excellent recipe I like lemon so I changed the pudding. juice concentrate and zest to lemon it is AWESOME. I get request for it all the time.
Another all-time family favorite since it first appeared in Taste of Home in April, 2002! Frequently requested by our six children when they were growing up,
Tastes AMAZING! Be careful, it calls for "1 can" of evaporated milk, but in parentheses it says "5 ounces". I have only seen evaporated milk in a 12 ounce can! I put the whole can in and later realized the mistake. The middle layer was a bit soft, but was probably from me doubling the evaporated milk! The crust was a bit crumbly, and I see another reviewer say they baked it for 10 minutes. I might try that next time. =)
One cheat. I used a 9" pre made graham cracker crumb pie crust. Mixed it up as the recipe states and it worked beautifully. Lovely, rich, yummy treat. This is our "stuck in a snowstorm dessert". Someone said this wasn't an easy recipe. It's actually pretty easily as long as you have the proper springform pan and you set all your ingredients out as well as your spoons, measuring cups, etc.

We LOVE this cheesecake. Great for Easter dessert.
I love the taste but it's not an easy recipe.
I've received rave reviews each time I've made this. It was such a hit at a huge gathering - over 300 people, folks were waiting at my empty dish to pin me down for the recipe - I had dropped it off and left. I agree, adding gelatin to both topping gives it more body. I also added some orange powder breakfast ( tang) - 1 tbs -mix to the last topping to give it more zing - I've made this with lime jello as well as raspberry. I've also made it with a layer of lime and a top layer of orange - you can also make it rainbow by dividing the first layer in half using raspberry, lime to make two layers instead of one - you need to allow "each" layer to set up by refrigerating the layer for at least 30 minutes, then add the top with the original orange. This not only taste good but is very pretty. I've also done a marble cheese cake which is very lovely - just add the layers random by spoon, then swirl with a knife. The key is to allow this all to set for at least 8 hours. Best recipe I've ever had for cheese cake.
I made this for a family gathering and it was a hit. I baked the crust for 10 minutes at 350 and I omitted the evaporated milk
