Ingredients

Crust

  • 3/4 cup cookie or graham cracker crumbs
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 3 tablespoons melted butter

Filling

  • 16 ounces cream cheese (regular or lite)
  • 2/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1/4 cup frozen orange juice concentrate, thawed
  • 1 teaspoon orange or lemon zest or dried grated rind

  2. Pat into a 7-inch springform pan.
  3. In a medium bowl, cream together the cream cheese and sugar.

  5. Beat in orange juice, zest, flour and vanilla extract.
  6. Eat for another 2 minutes.
  7. Pour batter into prepared crust; place on a rack or aluminum foil ring in a slow cooker (so it doesn't rest on the bottom of the pot).
