ORANGE CHEESECAKE

Ingredients:

 

Crust:

1 package Pineapple Cake Mix

1/2 cup butter or margarine, melted

 

Filling:

1 4 serving package orange gelatin

1 cup boiling water

2 tsp. grated orange peel

2 8 ounce packages of cream cheese, softened

1 cup whipping cream

1/2 cup sour cream

 

Directions

1 can (11 ounces) Mandarin orange segments, drained. Preheat oven to 350°F. For crust, combine cake mix and melted butter in large bowl. Mix at low speed until crumbs form. Lightly press into 9 inch springform pan so crust is 1 inch up the sides. Smooth remaining crumbs on the bottom of pan. Bake at 350°F for 20 minutes. Cool.

For filling, dissolve gelatin in boiling water in small saucepan. Add orange peel. Refrigerate until thickened. Beat cream cheese until smooth in large bowl. Gradually beat in thickened gelatin. Beat whipping cream until stiff in large bowl. Fold into orange cream cheese mixture. Pour into cooled crust. Refrigerate until firm, about 3 hours. Drop teaspoonfuls of sour cream around edge of cheesecake. Garnish with drained orange segments.
