NOOO...These are the 3 best CheeseCake Recipes

I understand that everyone thinks that they have the BEST CheeseCake recipes, every-ones MOM, AUNT, Grandma, Favorite Restaurant has the BEEEST CheeseCake ever. I am far from a chef, most of my HUBS are on financials, business, politics, but I have searches high and low, far and near. These are 3 of the finest CheeseCake recipes I have been able to locate and reproduce in 30 years of searching. Although I would be "competing" with literally hundreds of HUBS and Squids (squidoo.com), not to mention the 5,000,000 google results for the term "CheeseCake". It is my duty to present these three CheeseCake Recipes as a member of the WEB 2.0 community.

STRAWBERRY CHEESECAKE!!!!!

Arizona Sunset Cheesecake

This one is a little bit of work, but I assure you, when you settle down on your deck with a nice cold beverage and a slice of this, you'll just think heaven has arrived on earth.

Arizona Sunset Cheesecake

Shortbread Crust

1 1/2 Cup Flour

1/2 Cup Finely ground pecans

1/3 Cup Sugar

1 lg Egg, separated

1/2 Cup Butter, softened

Cranberry Glaze Filling

1 cn Whole berry cranberry- sauce OR 2 cups cranberry orange relish

2 tb Sugar

1 tb Cornstarch

1 tb Grated lemon zest

1 tb Lemon juice

White Chocolate Filling

1 1/2 Cup Fresh orange juice

1-3 Inch x 1 inch piece- of orange peel (orange part only)

4 8 oz pkgs cream cheese

2/3 Cup Sugar

1 tb Grated orange zest

2 tb Cranberry Liqueur (such- as Crantasia Schnapps)

8 oz White chocolate, melted

4 Eggs

Candied Orange Topping

4 Cup Water

2 Cup Sugar

3 Seedless oranges (unpeeled)- cut into paper-thin slices

Garnish

Whipped Cream

Shortbread Crust:

Preheat the oven to 190 degrees c. Working on a large flat

surface, such as a pastry board, place flour, pecans, and sugar in the center of the surface and mix together. Form a small depression or well in the center of the mound. Add the egg yolk and the softened butter to the well, then blend these with the dry mixture. Mix the ingredients thoroughly using your hands -- you really need the het of your hands to work the butter in. Shape the dough into a ball and wrap in plastic wrap.

Chill for at least 10 minutes. Roll out the dough to a thickness of about 1/4-inch. You should have a circle of about 11 inches in diameter. For best results, roll out your dough between 2 sheets of waxed paper, then peel away the paper and cut the crust in a 9 inch circle. Place the circle inside a 9 inch springform pan. Prick the crust

several times with a fork to keep the crust from puffing up during the baking. Place the springform pan in the oven and bake for 15 to 20 minutes, or until light brown.

Allow to cool. Using the leftover dough, line the sides of the springform pan. Press the dough against the sides of the pan, smoothing it so as to have a continuous layer

of crust all the way around the sides of the pan. Make sure that the side crust meets the bottom crust all the way around. Brush the reserved egg white onto the shell,

covering the bottom and sides. This will seal the dough and keep it from becoming soggy. Set aside until ready to use.

Cranberry Glaze Filling:

Mix the sugar and cornstarch together in a small saucepan. Stir in the cranberry sauce. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until thick. Stir in the lemon zest and lemon juice. Set aside to cool slightly.

White Chocolate Filling:

Reset the oven to 180 degrees F. Boil the orange juice and piece of orange peel in a heavy medium saucepan until the juice is reduced to 3 Tbsp - about 12 minutes. Remove and discard the strip of orange peel and set aside the reduced orange juice. Using an electric mixer, beat the cream cheese, sugar, grated orange zest, Crantasia, and reduced orange juice until smooth. Beat in the melted white chocolate and then the eggs, one at a time, beating just until combined. Pour the cranberry glaze filling into the prepared crust, spreading evenly.

Pour the white chocolate filling over the cranberry layer and bake about 50 minutes (the top will be dry and the sides puffed slightly - the center will not be set). Move

cheesecake to a wire rack and cool completely to room temperature. Chill in the refrigerator overnight.

Candied Oranges Topping:

Cover a wire rack with waxed paper. Set aside.

Combine the water and sugar in a heavy shallow wide skillet. Stir over medium heat until the sugar dissolves. Simmer 5 minutes longer. Add the orange slices 1 at a time

and adjust the heat so that the syrup bubbles only around the edges of the pan.

Cook the oranges for one hour. Turn over the top layer of oranges and cook until the oranges are translucent and the orange peels tender, about another one hour longer.

Lift and drain each orange slice out of the syrup, and arrange the slices in a single layer on the prepared rack. Let dry 1 hour. Boil the orange-sugar syrup until thick,

about 6 minutes. Loosen and remove the sides of the springform pan. Set the cheesecake on a serving dish. Overlap the candied orange slices around the top of

the cheesecake. Reheat the orange syrup, if necessary, and brush over the orange slices. Drizzle any remainder over each serving.

Garnish:

whipped cream.

NOTE: You may substitute grapefruits for the oranges in the Candied Oranges Topping if you prefer.
