Why have I never seen this done before?
While making a cheesecake yesterday, I realized I had no sour cream and would have to improvise a little from my “usual”.
I also had 2 cups of leftover homemade cranberry sauce on hand that I needed to use up, and then I spied Orange Crush water flavoring sitting there near the sink, and realized it had enough food coloring in it to do “double duty”.
I revised my classic Volume 1 recipe just a bit, ending up with this three layer seasonal treat. You could do this with any cheesecake recipe of course, and vary the flavors in infinite ways. Just spoon the “jelly” layer out carefully, as well as the top layer.
I’ll be back to post the finished product pic after I cut into this later today. What do you think? Will you try this technique soon?
