Orange Swirled Cheesecake

Directions

  1. In a small saucepan sprinkle 2 1/2 teaspoons of the gelatin over the orange juice; let stand for 5 minutes. Heat and stir over low heat just until gelatin is dissolved. Remove from heat; cool for 5 minutes.
  2. In another small saucepan sprinkle the remaining 1 1/4 teaspoons gelatin over the milk; let stand for 5 minutes. Heat and stir over low heat just until gelatin is dissolved. Remove from heat; cool for 5 minutes.
  3. In a large mixing bowl beat cream cheese with an electric mixer on medium speed until smooth. Beat in yogurt, sugar, and vanilla until smooth. Remove 1/2 cup of the cream cheese mixture and add it to the milk mixture, whisking until smooth; set aside. Gradually beat orange juice mixture into the remaining cream cheese mixture until smooth. Tint to a light orange color with the orange food coloring. Stir in the 1 teaspoon orange peel.
  4. Spoon half of the the orange cream cheese mixture into a 7- to 8-inch springform pan. Spoon half of the white cream cheese mixture into mounds over orange cream cheese mixture. Using a narrow, thin-bladed metal spatula or a table knife, swirl white mixture into orange mixture. Repeat layering and swirling remaining orange mixture and white mixture. Cover and chill for 4 to 24 hours or until set.
  5. To serve, using a small sharp knife, loosen cheesecake from sides of springform pan; remove sides of pan. If desired, garnish with fresh raspberries and/or orange peel curls. To serve, cut cheesecake into 12 wedges.

*Tip:

If you don't have paste food coloring, you can use 4 drops yellow and 1 drop red liquid food colorings to get an orange color.
