Crust

1
package (9 oz) chocolate wafer cookies, crushed
6
tablespoons butter or margarine, melted

Filling

4
packages (8 oz each) cream cheese, softened
1 1/3
cups sugar
4
eggs
2
tablespoons orange-flavored liqueur or orange juice
1
teaspoon grated orange peel

Sauce

1
package (10 oz) frozen raspberries in syrup, thawed
3
tablespoons sugar
1
teaspoon cornstarch

Directions

  1. 1 Heat oven to 325°F. In medium bowl, mix crust ingredients; press in bottom and 2 inches up side of ungreased 9-inch springform pan.
  2. 2 In large bowl, beat cream cheese with electric mixer on medium speed until smooth and creamy. Gradually beat in 1 1/3 cups sugar until smooth, scraping bowl occasionally. On low speed, beat in eggs, one at a time, just until blended. Add liqueur and orange peel; beat on medium speed 2 minutes, scraping bowl occasionally. Pour filling into crust.
  3. 3 Bake 55 to 65 minutes or until almost set. Cool completely, about 2 hours 30 minutes. Refrigerate at least 4 hours or overnight before serving.
  4. 4 In food processor or blender, process raspberries with syrup until smooth. If desired, strain to remove seeds. In 1-quart saucepan, mix 3 tablespoons sugar and the cornstarch. Stir in raspberry puree. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until mixture boils and thickens. Cool to room temperature.
  5. 5 Carefully remove side of pan; leave cheesecake on pan bottom. Serve cheesecake with sauce. Store in refrigerator.
