How to Make Cranberry Cheesecake

Step-by-Step

  2. Position knife blade in food processor bowl. Add cranberry sauce and cinnamon; process until smooth. Set aside.
  3. Beat cream cheese at medium speed of an electric mixer until smooth. Add sugar and cornstarch; beat well. Add eggs, one at a time, beating just until blended after each addition. Stir in vanilla.
  4. Pour half of batter into crust; spoon 1/2 cup cranberry mixture over batter. Swirl gently with a knife. Top with remaining batter. Spoon 1/2 cup cranberry mixture over cheesecake, and swirl gently with a knife
  5. Bake at 350° for 15 minutes. Reduce oven temperature to 225°. Bake 1 hour and 10 minutes.

  7. Remove from oven; let cool completely in pan on a wire rack. Chill, uncovered, until ready to serve. (Cheesecake will continue to firm up as it chills.)
