Regal Cranberry Cheesecake

1 c graham cracker crumbs (we sometimes use Oreo crumbs)
3 T sugar
3 T melted butter

Combine and press onto bottom of 9-inch springform pan, bake 10 min @ 325.

3 8 oz packages cream cheese
3/4 c sugar
2 T flour
2 tsp vanilla
3 eggs
1 c sour cream
1 1/2 c cranberry orange sauce, chilled ( 1 1/4 cup cranberry sauce, 1/4 c orange marmalade)

Combine cream cheese, sugar, flour, and vanilla until well-blended. Add eggs, one at a time, mixing well. Blend in sour cream; pour over crust. Bake @ 450 10 minutes, then reduce heat to 250 and bake 30 additional minutes. Loosen from rim, cool, chill. Spoon sauce over, garnish with a long twist of orange peel.

This is a wonderful holiday dessert, and it is tart and elegant rather than cloyingly sweet. It doesn't matter if the cheesecake cracks on top, since the sauce goes over it anyway. This is one of those that makes a stunning presentation, disproportionate to the ease of making it. It's from the Philidelphia Cream Cheese Cheesecake Book from '89.
