 Ingredients List

  • 1 1/2 c Graham cracker crumbs
  • 1/2 c Finely chopped walnuts
  • 1/4 c (1 stick) butter, melted
  • 1 cn (16 oz.) whole cranberry
  • -sauce
  • 3 pk (8 oz. each) cream cheese,
  • -softened
  • 3/4 c Granulated sugar
  • 1/4 c Flour
  • 3 Eggs
  • 8 oz Dairy sour cream
  • 2 ts Vanilla extract


Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
In a small bowl combine crumbs, walnuts and butter. In the bottom of a
9-inch spring-form pan firmly press crumb mixture. Bake until golden, 5 to
6 minutes; remove from oven; coo slightly. Spread with cranberry sauce; set
aside. Reduce oven temperature to 300 degrees. In the large bowl of an
electric mixer beat cream cheese, sugar and flour until smooth. Beat in
eggs, sour cream and vanilla until well blended; spread evenly over
cranberry sauce. Bake until a knife inserted 1-1/2-inches from the edge
comes out clean, about 1 hour; turn off oven; leave cheesecake in oven with
door ajar until top is firm to the touch, about 30 minutes. Cool on a wire
rack, about 1 hour. Cover and refrigerate until cold, about 4 hours.
Just before serving, remove cheesecake from pan to a serving plate.
Garnish with sugared cranberries, kiwi slices and mint leaves, if desired.

NOTE: To make sugared cranberries: In a small bowl place a small amount of
white corn syrup. Add fresh cranberries, a few at a time, turning to coat;
then place in a bowl of granulated sugar. Using a fork, remove cranberries
from sugar and place on a plate until ready to use.
