2 tsp
finely shredded orange peel
1/3 c
orange juice

For crust, in a medium mixing bowl stir together the vanilla wafer crumbs and melted butter. Set aside one quarter of the crumb mixture. Press remaining mixture evenly into the bottom of a 13x9x2” baking pan. Bake in a preheated 350*F oven for 15 minutes.

For lining, in another mixing bowl, beat cream cheese with an electric mixer on medium-high speed for 30 seconds. Add eggs one at a time beating well after each addition. Beat in sugar, orange juice, and orange peel till combined. Do not over beat. Spread cream cheese mixture evenly over crust.
