I made this cheesecake yesterday for company and it was not good. First of all, the ingredients alone cost over $20.00. I question the amount of butter (3/4 cup) used in the crust. The end result was very greasy tasting. It took a long time to mix the ingredients even though the creamcheese was at room temperature. Also the baking time was not 50 minutes. I actually had to bake it an additional 20 minutes. No one liked the end result. I've been cooking and baking for over 40 years and have made cheesecakes in the past that turned out fine.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
  2. In a bowl place the cream cheese, 1/2 cups of sugar and sour cream and beat on medium speed until mixture is smooth. Add the eggs, heavy cream and orange peel. Beat until all the mixture is smooth.
  3. In another bowl, mix until well blended the vanilla wafer crumbs, butter and brown sugar. With fingers pat the wafer mixture into a springform pan; top the wafer mixture with the cheese mixture. Place pan into a larger pan and add boiling water to cover halfway up sides of springform pan. Bake for 40 minutes or until set.
  4. Remove very carefully the springform pan from water and let cool for 30 minutes at room temperature.
  5. Refrigerate for 4 hours or until serving time.
  6. Slowly unmold the cake from the pan, sprinkle with the remaining sugar and broil under broiler until sugar melts and browns (be careful not to burn the sugar).
  7. To serve, place cheesecake on a serving platter and surround with fresh strawberries, raspberries and blueberries.
