Orange-Ginger Cheesecake Tart

  • Prep Time 10 min
  • Total Time 1 h 30 min
  • Serves: 16

Ingredients

  • 1 1/4 cups graham cracker crumbs 300 mL
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted 60 mL
  • 1 1/2 cups light cream cheese, room temperature 375 mL
  • 1 cup + 2 tsp sugar, divided 250 mL + 10 mL
  • 3 tbsp sour cream 45 mL
  • 2 eggs, 1 whole, 1 yolk only
  • 1 tbsp grated fresh ginger 15 mL
  • 1 1/2 cups orange juice 375 mL
  • 1/4 cup candied ginger 60 mL
  • 2 small navel oranges

Directions

  • Step 1

    Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C). Grease sides of a 9-in. (23 cm) round springform pan and line bottom with parchment paper cut to size. In a small bowl, mix graham crumbs and butter. Press evenly onto bottom of pan to create crust. Bake until golden brown, about 10 min. Let cool completely.

  • Step 2

    Meanwhile, using an electric mixer (stand or hand-held), beat together cream cheese, 1/2 cup (125 mL) sugar, sour cream, eggs and fresh ginger until fully incorporated. Pour batter into pan and spread evenly. Bake until centre is just set, with a slight jiggle, about 40 min. Cool completely to room temperature before refrigerating overnight to set.

  • Step 3

    Once set, make a glaze by bringing 1/2 cup (125 mL) sugar and orange juice to boil in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Lower heat and simmer until liquid reduces to 1/2 cup (125 mL), about 20 min. While liquid is simmering, soak candied ginger in hot water for 10 min. then finely dice. Stir in candied ginger once liquid is reduced.

  • Step 4

    Preheat oven to broil. Peel and remove pith from navel oranges, then cut into segments. Spread in a single layer on a parchment paper–lined baking sheet and sprinkle 2 tsp (10 mL) sugar overtop. Broil until golden and slightly caramelized, about 5 to 7 min. Garnish cake with bruléed orange slices and drizzle glaze overtop.

Tip

Bake this cheesecake a day ahead to allow time for it to set in the refrigerator.
