    PaulaG's Note:

    A decadent white chocolate cheesecake with a touch of orange nestled into a graham cracker brown sugar crust with just a hint of cinnamon. Top this off with Apricot Coulis and everyone will be impressed. The use of orange extract will definately produce a stronger orange flavor; however, vanilla can be also be used with satisfactory results. This recipe was developed for RSC #9.------

      What a nice cheesecake!! This is the first time that I have ever attempted a cheesecake. I had always heard how difficult and 'touchy' they were to make. Well, that is not the case with this recipe. I followed instructions (almost) exactly, and have a beautiful,perfect cheesecake. The only place I didn't follow instructions were the pan size...I only have a 10-inch springform, so that is what I used. I did alter the coulis, however. I didn't have dried apricots handy, so used some apricot preserves. Based on that substitution, I had to modify the amount of OJ and honey. I still have a nice, lovely apricot sauce for the cheesecake. I am keeping my sauce separate and spooning a few tablesspoons over each piece as I cut it....wonderful.
