Creamy Orange Cheesecake

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
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Instructions

  1. Combine crumbs with sugar; mix in melted butter until well moistened.
  2. Pat into a 7-inch springform pan.
  3. In a medium bowl, cream together the cream cheese and sugar.
  4. Add eggs and yolk and beat for about 3 minutes on medium with a hand-held electric mixer.
  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).
  8. Cover and cook on HIGH for 2 1/2 to 3 hours.
  9. Turn off and leave for 1 to 2 hours, until cool enough to remove.
  10. Cool completely and remove the sides of the pan.
