Easy Mandarin Orange Cheesecake
Adapted from this recipe.

Crust:
1 6 ounce graham cracker pie crust
Filling:
2 8 ounce packages cream cheese, softened
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup orange juice, frozen concentrate, thawed
2 teaspoons orange extract
1 cup heavy whipping cream, whipped
2 teaspoons grated orange peel, optional
1 11 ounce can mandarin oranges, drained and patted dry

Combine crust ingredients and press into the bottom of a 9-in. pie plate. Bake at 350° for 6-8 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool.

Meanwhile, for filling, beat cream cheese and sugar in a bowl until light and fluffy. Add concentrate and extract; beat well. Fold in whipped cream and orange peel if desired. Spread evenly into crust. Arrange oranges in decorative design on top of filling. Chill at least 3 hours.  Yield:  8 servings.

This is super easy to make. I love a no-bake cheesecake!!!
