This years holiday treat !

Preheat oven  350*

9” Springloaded Cheesecake pan  -greased or sprayed


8 oz Graham Cracker Crumbs – I buy  crumbs that are pre ground in the baking aisle.

1 stick Butter-melted

½ cup Sugar

¼ teaspoon plus a pinch of Salt

Zest of an Orange

In a small bowl , combine all ingredients and press into a greased cheesecake pan. Press crumbs into pan using a flat bottomed glass. It will help you get a uniform crust. Crust will go all the way up sides of pan , its a deep cheesecake.

Bake for 15 minutes.


5     8 oz. packages Cream Cheese-Room temp

1 ½ Cups Sugar

3 tablespoons Flour

Zest of one Orange

Zest of one Lemon

5 eggs – beaten

2 egg yolks – beaten

¾ teaspoon Vanilla

Lower oven to 300*

Be mindful not to over mix these ingredients.

Take time to scrape down sides and the bottom of mixing bowl with a rubber spatula often , making sure to mix all of the cream cheese into the batter.

Beat Cream Cheese . Add Sugar , Flour, Zests. Add Eggs and Yolks in small increments until all is combined. Add Vanilla. Mix until combined.

Pour Cream Cheese mixture into baked crust .

Place cheesecake pan onto a cookie sheet incase of spillage during the baking process.

Bake for 1 hour or until wooden skewer or toothpick comes out clean. You may need another 10 minutes depending on the heat of your oven. If top gets too brown loosely lay a piece of foil onto the browned top.

Let cool completely before removing the spring pan.

Refrigerate before serving

1 pint Strawberries- quartered or chopped

2 teaspoons sugar

Juice of ½ Lemon

1 teaspoon Cornstarch

In a saucepan , combine all ingredients. Heat to a boil, cook for 2 more minutes. Cool.
