grated orange zest
1 (1.5 fluid ounce) jigger
THE BEST CHEESECAKE EVER!!!
This didn't turn out well, at all!
Beyond yummy. I used Grand Marnier Liquer instead of whisky. I also used orange extract instead of orange zest. I served it with a sweet strawberry sauce.
When my grandmother passed, she took her recipes with her. This is the closest I have come to replicating her cheesecake. Only thing I did different was omit the orange zest, and add a pinch or so of anise seed (my grandmother's cheesecake had that anise flavor). Thanks for a great recipe!
Very easy and not too sweet. I used small custard dishes and halved the recipe. I prefer almond extract over vanilla in many recipes and used it in this. Sprinkle cinnamon on top after done and serve with strawberries/blueberries.
Thanks! My nonna gave me her recipe, but didn't tell me to refrigerate it or leave it on the counter. Appreciate your specific reference to refrigerator...
This cheesecake is very Italian and delicious. The best part is, it's so easy to make!
This is like my Grandmother's Recipe!!!!!
