  • Summary

    This is the very richest, smoothest cheesecake. The finely ground almonds which dust the pan are a pleasing contrast to the silkiness of the cake. Use a straight-sided pan 8 inches wide and 3 inches deep. This recipe is adapted from "Entertaining" by Martha Stewart.

    Ingredients

    • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter, softened
    • 1/4 pound finely ground blanched almonds
    • 4 8-ounce packages cream cheese, room temperature
    • 1/2 cup heavy cream
    • 1 1/2 cups sugar
    • 4 large eggs, lightly beaten
    • Grated zest of 1 lemon
    • Grated zest of 1 orange
    • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
