Creamy Orange-Cranberry Cheesecake
Directions
1. Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C). Lightly spray a 9-inch (23-cm) spring form pan with vegetable oil. In a food processor, whirl flour with icing sugar. Cut Lactantia Butter into large chunks, then pulse into flour just until mixture begins to come together. Or place flour and icing sugar in a medium-size bowl. Cut in butter just until mixture resembles small bread crumbs. Turn mixture into pan. Press evenly into a thin layer over bottom of pan. Bake in lower part of preheated oven, until golden, from 18 to 20 minutes.

2. Meanwhile, place Lactantia Original or Light Cream Cheese in a large mixing bowl. Using an electric mixer, beat cheese until smooth. Gradually beat in sugar. Scrape down sides of bowl to ensure even mixing. Beat in orange peel and vanilla. Crack in eggs, one at a time, beating well and scraping down sides of bowl after each addition. Stir in liqueur and cranberries just until mixed.

3. Pour mixture over baked crust. It will fill almost to the top of the pan. Smooth top. Bake in lower part of oven for 20 minutes. Then reduce oven temperature to 300°F (150°C). Continue baking just until centre is almost set, for 1-1/4 more hours.

4. Turn off oven and leave door open. Let cheesecake slowly cool in oven for 45 minutes to 1 hour. Remove from oven, then run a knife around edge to help prevent cracking. Refrigerate, uncovered, at least 3 hours, preferably overnight.

5. Prepare the sauce up to 2 hours before serving. Pour Lactantia 35% Cream and liqueur, if using, into a small saucepan. Bring up to a boil, stirring occasionally, over medium-high heat. Finely chop chocolate and place in a medium-sized bowl. Pour hot cream mixture overtop and stir well until chocolate has completely melted. Stir in Lactantia Butter until smooth. Slice cake into thin wedges. Drizzle a few spoonfuls of warm chocolate sauce over each piece.

MORE
Moussaka with Béchamel sauce topping
Directions
1. Preheat oven to 450°F.

2. Eggplant Preparation: Slice eggplant lengthwise ¼-½” thick cutting off stem ends. Brush lightly with olive oil on both sides. Place in single layers of baking sheets. Bake 10 minutes, turn over and continue cooking an additional 10 minutes. Let cool until you are able to handle them. Continue until all eggplant is baked. Reduce oven temperature to 350°F.

3. Meat Filling Preparation: In a large heavy bottomed saucepan cook lamb over medium-high heat until meat is browned. Drain fat if desired. Add onion and garlic and cook until onions have softened and mixture is well blended. Add tomatoes, tomato paste, wine, salt, oregano, pepper and cinnamon and cook over medium heat about 20 minutes or until liquid has reduced and mixture is fairly dry. Remove from heat.

4. Topping Preparation: See below for basic white sauce/béchamel sauce recipe and directions. You will need double the recipe for approximately 3 cups of sauce. Add lemon juice and feta cheese, mix well.

5. Casserole Assembly: Lightly grease a 9“x13” (3.75 L) pan. Cover bottom of pan with single layer of eggplant. Divide remaining eggplant slices in half. Cover eggplant layer with 1/3 of meat filling. Layer with half of remaining eggplant (it is okay if eggplant does not completely cover meat mixture). Cover eggplant with 1/3 of meat filling. Layer with remaining half of eggplant. Cover with remaining 1/3 of meat mixture. Spread prepared topping evenly over last layer of meat filling. Sprinkle with crumbled feta cheese.

6. Bake for about 1 hour or until casserole is bubbling and lightly browned. Let sit for 5-10 minutes and serve.

Sauce:

1. In a medium sized saucepan, melt butter over low heat, add flour and cook over low heat 1-2 minutes, do not brown. Remove saucepan from heat, add Sensational Soy Smooth Original and whisk quickly. Return saucepan to heat and continue cooking 4-5 minutes until sauce thickens, whisking often. Strain through a fine sieve if desired. Season with salt and pepper.

Note: Béchamel sauce is a basic in a lot of recipes. One cup of sauce can be combined with 2 cups of solids such as vegetables, seafood and chicken, just to name a few. It is a great alternative in pasta recipes that call for cream. The sauce can be made ahead, covered with a piece of plastic wrap and refrigerated for up to 2 days.

Then, use a wide spatula to scrape pan bottom until eggs are done as you like, about another 2 minutes.

3. Eggs will continue to cook when removed from heat, so it’s best to serve right away. Wonderful with sliced tomatoes.
