This cheesecake tasted just like the pumpkin cheesecake we used to serve at a 5-star restaurant in Washington d.c. years ago. Their head pastry chef made it every fall to run through the holidays. I did have to make a few changes to make this recipe more of a creamy cheesecake that most people are used to.


1 pouch of betty crocker sugar cookie mix OR 1 pre-made pie crust if you want totally – no bake
3-4 + 1 c powder sugar
3 8oz boxes of cream cheese softened
2 c heavy whipping cream +1 c for the topping
1 4 oz box of orange flavored jello
1 C boiling water
1 orange zested
1-3 tsp + 1-3 tsp for the topping of vanilla extract
1 disposable piping bag with a star tip


if doing the cookie crust Preheat oven to 360F and spray the inside of a 7-inch springform cheesecake pan with baking spray then follow the directions on the cookie mix until you have the cookie batter
take the batter and press it down into the prepared pan as you would a regular crust then bake for roughly 12 – 15 minutes until the cookie crust is lightly browned
remove and set aside
in a large mixing bowl beat cream cheese until smooth
mix in the 3-4 c powder sugar
in a medium bowl combine the jello with the boiling water and whisk until completely dissolved set aside zest the orange and set aside
using a standing mixer whip on medium speed the heavy whipping cream 1-2 c powder sugar and vanilla until stiff peaks form
add 1-3 of the whipped cream into the cooled jello and whisk until combined
fold the remaining whipped cream in with the cream cheese mixture
Spread 1-3 of the cream cheese mixture onto the crust
spread about 3 c of the orange mixture onto the cream cheese mixture
slowly and carefully spread the remaining of the cream cheese mixture
place into the fridge to set overnight
