Daring Bakers Challenge Cheesecake





The April 2009 challenge is hosted by Jenny from Jenny Bakes. She has chosen Abbey's Infamous Cheesecake as the challenge.

For this challenge Jenny left us plenty of freedom so I decided to use half amaretti and half graham crakers in the crust which I didn't bake if not a for a very short time enough for melting a layer of chocolate I had sprinkled on top. In the cream I used 'grand marnier' and orange juice and zest and on top I put a caramel sauce and some hints about what was inside.

I apologize for being so short and not doing many visits but after the 30th I'll catch up !!
