DIRECTIONS

  • Put the walnuts in a food processor. Add the graham cracker crumbs, and while the machine is still running, slowly add the orange juice until the mixture begins to adhere.
  • Press the crumb crust evenly over the bottom of a 10-inch spring-form pan. Pre-bake the crust in a 300°F oven until the crust has dried and resembles a cookie, about 15 minutes.
  • Purée the cottage and ricotta cheeses in a food processor until smooth. Add the drained yogurt and remaining ingredients. Continue to purée until smooth.
  • Pour the cheese mixture over the crust and bake in a 300°F oven for 15 minutes. Place a bowl of water in the oven below the cheesecake and lower the oven temperature to 200°F Bake until set, 1½ hours more. Allow the cheesecake to cool completely before slicing.
