White Chocolate Cranberry Cheesecake

Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 50 mins

There are a couple of similar recipes that I found on Zaar, but none exactly like this one, which came from The Joy of Cranberries: The Tangy Red Treat cookbook! And, for someone like me who loves cheesecake & IS ADDICTED to chocolate & to cranberries, well . . . Preparation time does not include time needed for finished cake to chill.

Soooo good! My 14 year old daughter made this for us for Thanksgiving. Easy and delish! I cut the recipe down a 1/3 and used a storebought chocolate cookie crust. Creamy and rich- but not too rich.

Good recipe. Next time I will use more cranberries as I thought it needed more. I do not like oreos so I used Graham Crackers for my crust - it was good.

This was a very good cheesecake. It kinda reminded of an Italian cheesecake because of the orange zest. I also loved the cranberries and the oreo crust, yum! Thanks for sharing this :) Made this for ZWT4 for the Chic Chefs.
