Thank you for reviewing this recipe.
I love cheesecake however I don't like eggs. Because this cake does not have eggs that made it perfect for me. This cake has the smoothness and firmness of a baked cake and the flavor is soooooo yummy.I will be making this again and using other citrus flavors.
Just don't do white chocolate
I have made this exchanging a shortbread crust for the chocolate cookie crust and instead of using white chocolate, which I have never learned to appreciate, for semi-sweet chocolate. Most people enjoy the dark chocolate and orange combination in jellied candy sticks and this disappears whenever I take this to a potluck.
Perfect Dessert for a Picnic
Cheesecake is a very and light dessert for summer and every ocasion.
This is a very good recipe, easy to prepare, looks beautiful, tastes great! Nice orange flavor to accent the white chocolate. I also made one with a pre-made chocolate cookie crust,added a few dark chocolate curls to the garnish... Fast and Fabulous!
This is an excellent recipe.
