this one is from a williams-sonoma catalog and is the best i ever made/had. to die for. i used biscotti ground in a food processor for the crust, butground grahams or almond cookies should work too. very creamy & smooth (like me).


1 cp dried cranberries
2 cps biscotti pie crust mix
1/2 cp unsalted butter, melted & cooled
1 cp sugar
2 lbs cream cheese, at room temp
1/2 cp orange juice
1 Tbs grated orange zest
2 Tbs orange-flavor liqueur, such as grand marnier
5 eggs

in small saucepan, cover cranberries with water and simmer until soft and plump, about 4 minutes, drain & then let cool. in a bowl, mix together biscotti mix and melted butter. press mixture over bottom and up 2" of side of 10" sprinform pan. bake in 350 oven until golden, about 12 minutes. put on wire rack to cool. leave oven at 350.
in a mixing bowl, beat cream cheese and sugar on medium speed until smooth. beat in orange juice, orange zest and liqueur. add eggs, one at a time, beating after each addition. with rubber spatula, fold in cranberries. spoon mixture into cooled crust.
bake until cheesecake is set when pan is gently shaken, about 1 hour. cool completely on wire rack. refridgerate overnite.
to serve, remove sides of pan, transfer to plate and slice into wedges.

about 10,000 calories a slice and well worth it.

enjoy everybody. love, jane

i wasnt going to make either one of those this year, but after reading and typing them, went to market and making them both!! please, if you do make them, let me know how they turn out. chloe, the kids WILL eat that marshmallow thing. it is very easy and it is sooooo sweet. just like a blueberry crisp. (only without blueberries, duh).

#133125 - 11/22/00 10:16 PM Re: here's those recipes...
overcooked the cheesecake this time, and used a processor instead of beaters (wasnt as fluffy), fresh crans instead of dried. it cracked a little. well, i'll let ya know tomorrow how it tasted. smells gooooood!

Jane, thank you so much for the recipes. The Yams were so good my sister even liked them...and she doesn't like yams OR cranberries!
I'll be trying the cheesecake at Christmas. Now here's a super easy recipe for holidays. It's really good for parties since it feeds alot of people and it travels well:

Pumpkin Pie Cake
1 large can evaporated milk (I used 12 oz can)
3 eggs
½ cup brown sugar
½ cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon cinnamon
½ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon ground cloves
1/8 teaspoon ginger
1 can pumpkin (26-29 oz)
1 box spice cake mix
2 sticks butter or margarine, melted
chopped nuts
whipped topping
Mix first ten ingredients. Pour into ungreased 9 x 13 baking pan. Sprinkle cake mix evenly over top. Sprinkle nuts over cake mix. Drizzle melted butter over the nuts and cake mix. Bake at 350 degrees for about 1 hour. Cool in fridge; cut and top with whipped topping.

I don't have to fuss with making pie crusts anymore. This is so much better than pie.
