How do I make it ?
Heat oven to 325°F.
Combine gingersnap crumbs, butter and 2 Tbsp. sugar; press evenly onto bottoms of 16 paper-lined muffin pan cups, adding about 2 tsp. crumb mixture to each cup.
Beat cream cheese, ginger, orange zest, vanilla and 3/4 cup of the remaining sugar in large bowl with mixer until blended. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating on low speed after each just until blended. Spoon over crusts.
Bake 20 to 25 min. or until centres are almost set.
Meanwhile, bring orange juice and remaining sugar to boil in saucepan, stirring frequently. Simmer on medium-low heat 8 to 10 min. or until thickened, stirring frequently. Cool completely.
Cool cheesecakes 10 min. Remove from pans to wire racks; cool completely.
Refrigerate cheesecakes and orange sauce 2 hours. Remove cheesecakes from paper liners just before serving topped with the orange sauce.
Kraft Kitchen Tips!
Cut 3 (1/2-inch-thick) slices from an additional orange, then cut each slice into 6 wedges. Use to garnish the cheesecakes just before serving.
Substitute 4 tsp. minced gingerroot for the ground ginger.
With their built-in portion control, these mini cheesecakes are perfect as an occasional treat.
You will need to crush about 14 gingersnaps to get the 3/4 cup crumbs needed to prepare this cookie crust.
