DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
  • In a small bowl combine crumbs, walnuts and butter.
  • In the bottom of a 9-inch spring-form pan firmly press crumb mixture.
  • Bake until golden, 5 to 6 minutes; remove from oven; cool slightly.
  • Spread with cranberry sauce; set aside.
  • Reduce oven temperature to 300 degrees.
  • In the large bowl of an electric mixer beat cream cheese, sugar and flour until smooth.
  • Beat in eggs, sour cream and vanilla until well blended; spread evenly over cranberry sauce.
  • Bake until a knife inserted 1-1/2-inches from the edge comes out clean, about 1 hour; turn off oven; leave cheesecake in oven with door ajar until top is firm to the touch, about 30 minutes.
  • Cool on a wire rack, about 1 hour.
  • Cover and refrigerate until cold, about 4 hours.
  • Just before serving, remove cheesecake from pan to a serving plate.
  • Garnish with sugared cranberries, kiwi slices and mint leaves, if desired.
  • NOTE: To make sugared cranberries: In a small bowl place a small amount of white corn syrup.
  • Add fresh cranberries, a few at a time, turning to coat; then place in a bowl of granulated sugar.
  • Using a fork, remove cranberries from sugar and place on a plate until ready to use.
