Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Place gingersnaps in the bowl of a food processor, and process until finely ground. Transfer to a bowl, add melted butter, and stir until well combined. Transfer to an 8-inch fluted tart pan with a removable bottom, and press into bottom and up sides to form an even crust. Place in freezer.

  • Place cream cheese and sugar in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment; beat until fluffy. Add Marsala and vanilla extract, and beat until combined. Whip heavy cream to stiff peaks, and fold into cream-cheese mixture. Spoon mixture into prepared crust; return to freezer at least 1 hour 15 minutes or until firm.

  • Cut ends off oranges, and remove peel, pith, and outer membranes following the curve of the fruit with a paring knife. Lift sections away from inner membranes; reserve sections. Serve cheesecake garnished with orange sections.
