    In large bowl, beat cream cheese, 1 3/4 cups sugar, 3 tablespoons flour, the orange peel, lemon peel and salt with electric mixer on medium speed about 1 minute or until smooth. Beat in eggs, 2 egg yolks and 1/4 cup whipping cream, beating on low speed until well blended. Pour into baked crust (pan will be full). Bake 20 minutes.

    Reduce oven temperature to 300°F. Bake about 35 minutes longer or until center is set. (Do not insert a knife because the hole could cause cheesecake to crack.) Turn off oven and leave cheesecake in oven 15 minutes. Cool in pan on cooling rack 15 minutes.
  • 4
    Run knife around side of pan to loosen cheesecake. Refrigerate uncovered about 3 hours or until chilled; cover and continue refrigerating at least 9 hours but no longer than 48 hours.

    Run knife around side of pan to loosen cheesecake; carefully remove side of pan. In chilled small bowl, beat 3/4 cup whipping cream with electric mixer on high speed until stiff. Spread whipped cream over top of cheesecake. Garnish with raspberries. Store in refrigerator.

Expert Tips

  • Drizzle apricot or berry syrup in a zigzag design over dessert plates before adding slices of cheesecake.
  • No raspberries? Blueberries, blackberries and strawberries make great toppers singly or mixed together.
