    Mary Scheffert's Note:

    I got this recipe from my Dad, who got it off a recipe card. Not satisfied with the orange flavor of the original recipe, I tweaked a few ingredients to make it more intense. You can use your own graham cracker crust recipe if you prefer; we like the store-bought Oreo (dark chocolate) crust.

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Using a microplane grater or the smallest holes on a box grater, zest one entire orange onto a plate or into a bowl; set aside, and refrigerate zested orange for a later use.
    2. 2
      In a large mixing bowl, beat cream cheese until smooth, making sure there are no lumps; add sugar and mix well.
    3. 3
      Add eggs and egg yolk; then add orange juice concentrate, orange zest, flour, vanilla extract& orange extract and mix until thoroughly combined, scraping down sides& bottom of bowl frequently to make sure all of the cream cheese is incorporated.
    4. 4
      Preheat oven to 350°F.
    5. 5
      Place prepared pie crust in center of a cookie sheet (preferably without sides).
    6. 6
      Brush crust with some of the orange juice concentrate.
    7. 7
      Pour cream cheese mixture into prepared crust and bake 45-50 minutes or until center is almost set but still wiggles slightly when shaken gently (cheesecake will continue to cook after removing from oven).
    8. 8
      Remove cheesecake from oven, and let cool thoroughly on a wire rack (without the cookie sheet).
    9. 9
      When cooled to room temperature, refrigerate cheesecake for several hours.
    10. 10
      While cheesecake is chilling, remove some of the rind from the second orange with a vegetable peeler or citrus zester, being careful to only remove the orange part (the white pith is bitter).
    11. 11
      If using a vegetable peeler, cut the pieces of rind into very thin julienne strips; set aside.
    12. 12
      Make chocolate curls by scraping a large chocolate bar with a heavy knife, holding knife at a 90-degree angle to bar.
    13. 13
      When ready to serve, place a mound of the chocolate curls in center of cheesecake; sprinkle with julienned strips of orange.
    14. 14
      Refrigerate any leftovers.
