Mandarin Orange No Bake Cheesecake
1 1/4 cups crushed pretzels
1/4 cups sugar
6 oz. butter, melted
8 oz cream cheese, softened
1/2 cups full fat sour cream
2/3 cup sugar
3/4 tsp vanilla
1 cup heavy whipping cream
8-10 mandarin oranges (about 1 3/4 lb)
Mix together the crumbs, sugar and melted butter in a bag until well combined.
Press the crumbs into a 9 inch pie pan.
You can either freeze the crust or cook it. It holds together BETTER if it's cooked, but will work either way.
If baking - preheat oven to 375° F, bake for 7 mins and let cool completely.
Beat the cream cheese, sour cream, sugar and vanilla on medium speed until smooth.
In another bowl whip the heavy whipping cream until medium to stiff peaks form.
Then gently fold in the whipped cream into the cream cheese mixture.
Cut up half of the mandarin oranges and stir into the mixture.
Spread into the pie pan.
Place the rest of the mandarin oranges over the top of the pie, refrigerate for 3-4 hours.
Take out 15 mins prior to serving, cut and enjoy!
