Cranberry Cheesecake

I found this amazing recipe, and the picture alone makes me salivate, so why not share? šŸ™‚


Cranberry sauce: 226g cranberries, fresh or frozen 3/4 cup water Dash allspice Dash cloves 1/4 tsp orange extract 1/2 cup sugar
Crust: 250g Wholewheat Digestive cookies, crumbled 1/2 cup sugar 1/4 cup butter, melted
Filling: 450g cream cheese, softened 1/2 cup sugar 3/4 cup sour cream 1 tbs cornstarch 2 eggs, lightly beaten


In a medium saucepan, bring cranberries and water to a boil. Boil until the skin of the berries pops open, about 5 minutes.
Remove from heat and add allspice, cloves, orange extract, and sugar. Mix until thoroughly combined. Cool in refrigerator.
For the crust, combine digestive cookies crumbs, sugar, and butter in a small bowl. Press into the bottom of a greased 9-inch spring form pan; set aside.
In a mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese and sugar until smooth.
Add sour cream and cornstarch, beating well.
Add eggs, and beat on low speed just until combined.
Drain the cranberry sauce, reserve the cranberries. Fold one cup of cranberry sauce into the mixture. Pour into crust, sprinkle with the remaining sauce.
Bake the cake at 160C for 30-35 minutes or until the centre is almost set. Cool on a wire rack for 10 minutes. Carefully run a knife around the edge of the pan to loosen; cool one hour longer. Refrigerate overnight.
Before serving, if you wish, top the cake with cranberries from the sauce.
