  5. Beat in orange juice, zest, flour, and vanilla.
  6. Beat for another 2 minutes.
  7. Pour batter into prepared crust; place on a rack or aluminum foil ring in the crock pot (so it doesn't rest on the bottom of the pot).

  10. Cool completely and remove the sides of the pan.

Ok, I need to buy a 7" springform pan, or this can be done in the oven using the waterbath method, but very creamy and exceptionally smooth. I did use almond extract instead of vanilla, it just seemed right with the orange. Being originally from NJ, working in Greek diners for over 6 years, I can attest that this has 'it'. Wonderful job Mirj!
