A citrus cheesecake that is not too sweet, with the unique taste of blood oranges throughout the filling and the topping. This is my first post, I wanted to pass along a unique recipe that I found elsewhere today. I was looking for a way to use the blood oranges that are plentiful in the grocery store this time of year and have a unique flavour that I just love! My family, including my diabetic mother-in-law really enjoyed this dessert. Original recipe here:
