Summery Orange Cheesecake

Orange Cheesecake

 

Nothing says summer like orange cream. Remember Creamsicles? Well, August 14 is national creamsicle day. Here is a recipe for an orange creamy cheesecake that is perfect for summer… 1 vanilla cookie crust

1 8oz. package cream cheese, softened

1/3 cup sugar

2 large oranges

1 cup whipped cream, already whipped

Beat cream cheese and sugar until smooth.

Zest and juice 1 orange. Mix 1/2 cup orange juice and 2 teaspoons zest into the cream cheese.

Fold in whipped cream.

Chill for at least 4 hours.

Just before serving, segment the other orange and garnish the pie prettily. Or you can drain a small can of mandarin oranges.

To be perfectly honest, I don’t even bother with oranges on top.
