This subtly flavoured cheesecake has saffron threads and Cointreau orange liqueur. It has no gelatine and is made on a ginger nut biscuit crust.
mmmmmmmmmm yummy! I was a bit skeptical about this because of the gingerbread but it turned out quite well :D Great idea! - 05 Apr 2008 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
Great cheesecake.... It won my bakeoff!!! The gingerbread base was the best!! - 19 Apr 2010 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
Interesting combination of flavors, the crust was excellent, the filling was ok, although I couldn't finish even eating mine. I served to 2 guests that are cheesecake buffs and they were not overly impressed either. Cost of saffron aside, I wont be making this again but I will be experimenting with fillings I can try the crust with! - 23 Jan 2009 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
