1/4 cup slivered almonds

Process in food processor until fine crumbs. Sprinkle fine layer evenly in pans to coat sides and bottom.

If you want to indulge in a heavenly treat with out feeling guilty about it later than this light grand marnier cheesecake is the perfect treat. The guilt-free crust covered in a light and creamy topping is equisite. We suggest pairing it with our 2009 Quinta Reserva Pinot Noir Port Style.


Make sure all ingredients are room temperature. Place in blender or food processor and blend until very smooth. Pour into prepared pans. Place pans in large roasting pan and fill with hot water half way up the sides of the mini-pans. Bake in slow oven at 250°, for 45-60 minutes. Centers should jiggle slightly. Do not over bake. Remove from oven and top with sour cream topping and bake 5-7 minutes more until set. Immediately remove from water bath and cool on rack. Chill in refrigerator. To serve, remove from pan, top with raspberries or dry roasted slivered almonds, and drizzle with chocolate sauce. Serves 4.
