Can you believe how easy this one is? Delicious! (An adopted recipe, I haven't had the chance to make this myself, yet. Recipe has been slightly modified in response to comments.)

Yummy - yummy - yummy. Creamy, moist and bursting with flavor. This is the first time I have used the shortbread Ready Crust. It was the perfect compliment for the orange flavor. Top with whip cream and enjoy. I am going to email this to all my cheesecake baker friends!

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Mix cream cheese, sugar, orange juice concentrate, eggs, and reserved mandarin juice on medium speed until fluffy.
  3. Pour into shortbread crust. Carefully arrange mandarin slices on top. Sprinkle with a little light brown sugar, which will caramelize with the mandarin while baking.
  4. Bake at 375 for 30-35 minutes, or until cheese portions you can see on top are slightly golden and cheesecake has set.
  5. Remove from oven. Allow to cool on counter, then refrigerate for 3 hours.
  6. Note: adopted recipe originally used 1/2 cup of orange juice concentrate and gave no indication of what to do with the mandarin oranges. (LOL, what use is THAT?).
