Recipes From The Heart

-Creamsicle Cheesecake-
2 packages (8 ounces each) cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup sugar
2 eggs
3/4 cup sour cream
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon orange extract
zest from one orange
2 drops yellow food color
1 drop red food color
One 9-inch graham cracker pie crust

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese and
sugar until light and fluffy. Add the eggs; beat well. Add the sour cream and
vanilla; mix well. Place 1 cup of the mixture in a small bowl and stir in the orange
extract, the zest and the yellow and red food colors.
Pour the remaining cream cheese mixture into the pie crust. Drop the orange
cream cheese mixture into it by spoonfuls and swirl with a knife to create a
marbled effect. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes, or until firm around the edges. (The
center will be slightly loose.) Allow to cool for 1 hour then cover and chill for at
least 8 hours before serving.
