The Dream Cheese Cake

This year for the holidays I decided to focus on comforting flavors that are simple and satisfying. Cheese cake is always a welcome dessert in my family. But I wanted to make it special.

Growing up, I spent summers listening for the icecream truck. When I ran out with my dollar clutched in my fist, only one thing was on my mind: Dreamsicle!!!!

This cheesecake evokes that familiar and comforting flavor combo of vanilla and orange. The orange is a soft caress and aroma that lingers.
