Ingredients

Cheesecake:
  • 2 pkg cream cheese softened
  • 1/2 cup wildflower honey
  • 1/2 cup liquid honey
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon finely grated lemon rind
  • 1 egg
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1/3 cup sour cream
Crust:
  • 3/4 cups graham cracker crumbs
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped toasted pecan
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter melted
  • 3 tablespoons packed brown sugar

Method

Grease bottom of 6-inch (1.25 L) springform pan; line side with parchment paper. Set on large square of heavy-duty foil; press up side of pan. Set aside.

Crust: In small bowl, stir together graham cracker crumbs, pecans, butter and brown sugar until moistened; press over bottom and halfway up side of prepared pan. Bake in centre of 350°F (180°C) oven until firm, 7 to 8 minutes. Let cool.

Cheesecake: In bowl, beat cheese with honey; beat in sugar and orange rind. Stir in egg and egg yolk, 1 at a time. Blend in sour cream. Pour into crust.

Set springform pan in larger pan; pour enough hot water into larger pan to come 1 inch (2.5 cm) up sides. Bake in centre of 350°F (180°C) oven until shine disappears and edge is set but centre still jiggles slightly, 60 to 65 minutes.

Remove cheesecake from water and transfer to rack; remove foil and let cool. Cover and refrigerate until set, about 6 hours. (Make-ahead: Wrap in plastic wrap; refrigerate for up to 2 days.)

Serve with Blueberry Compote.
