Cranberry-Orange is my favorite flavor combination of the holiday season. I wanted to make a different cheesecake this year for Thanksgiving dinner, so I scoured the internet for the perfect Cranberry concoction. It was not to be found, so I pulled my favorite elements from about 6 different recipes, and bravely made the cheesecake for our annual "Friends Pre-Thanksgiving Dinner". What you have here is the divine results of that experiment. I'll be making it again in a couple of days for the real Thanksgiving, and I cannot wait! The orange zest for the cheesecake (not the candied garnish) comes to approximately the full zest of one large orange. Choose an orange with no blemishes on the peel. The cooking time does not include chilling 4 hours to overnight. Plan ahead! If it's springtime and you're craving this delicious cheesecake but don't want the cranberry topping, strawberries are an excellent garnish as well. After chilling the completed cheesecake overnight, run a small knife around the cake to release the sides and remove. Set cheesecake on serving platter. Arrange strawberries (4 cups, hulled), pointed ends up, atop cheesecake, leaving 1 inch border around outer edge. Stir 1/4 cup red currant jelly in heavy small saucepan over low heat until just melted. Mix in 4 teaspoons Grand Marnier; brush over berries. Prepare Grand Marnier Whipped Cream and pipe decoratively around outside of cheesecake; garnish with candied orange peel. I hope you enjoy it!
