Maybe ... after you've perfected it. Looooong drive

No kidding. How will I know if I've perfected it though?

OK, so bottom was NY style, then an orangy bit, then a lighter layer (possibly a whipped cheesecake?) with an orange swirl through it?

Any thoughts on the toppings? I don't want to have too much out there. Cheesecake is going into the oven.

I really like the simple Philly recipe with a simple raspberry topping.

Frozen raspberries, lemon juice (and zest if available), and raw sugar. I prefer mine a little on the tart side so I usually let it reduce as much as possible and concentrate the lemon.

You can always do the sauce on the side for those weird folks that only like plain cheesecake (like my dad).

This is probably late, but I did a cheesecake recently for a customer and it was a chocolate crust, a layer of caramel on top of the crust, NY style cheesecake and a drizzle of chocolate ganache on the top. They were very pleased. I also did a bowl of strawberries macerated with a bit of dark brown sugar and balsamic vinegar to serve as an option with the cheesecake.

I like to start with the NY version and use simple variations.

Janet, the orange sounds great!

Here are a few recipes I found in my files that you might want to check out for the future. They all use fruit swirls, and sound great.

Oh you guys are the best! Laurie, I love the caramel bit on the bottom, good idea.
Merstar, those are going in my files now too. Thanks!

My favorites to make and eat as well are classic NY style and pumpkin. I've made white chocolate raspberry and triple chocolate as well but everyone usually likes the original best. Also orange zest will give plenty of orange flavor, but I prefer it without. Matter of fact my regular NY recipe calls for orange and maybe lemon zest too but I always leave it out.

How do you do the white chocolate raspberry? Add white chocolate into the batter and bake? Raspberry topping?

Yes Alix that is essentially how I did it. I think I used Polaner raspberry syrup. That was years ago.
