Servings: 12
Categories: Cheesecakes / Desserts

1/2  cup  graham cracker crumbs
1/2  cup  ground almonds
1/4  cup  (2 ounces) melted butter
2  pounds  softened cream cheese
1  cup  sour cream
1 1/2  cups  Mascarpone cheese
2    eggs
2  cups  sugar
1  tablespoon  vanilla
2  tablespoons  orange juice
4  cups  peaches, fresh; sliced
1  cup  sugar
1/2  teaspoon  cinnamon
1/2  teaspoon  vanilla
4  slices  peaches, garnish
4    mint sprigs, garnish
    powdered sugar, garnish

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease the sides of a 9-inch springform pan with butter. In a bowl combine the graham cracker crumbs, almonds, and melted butter until well blended and press into the bottom of the springform pan. In another bowl beat the cream cheese until smooth and creamy. Beat in the sour cream, mascarpone, eggs, sugar, and continue beating until the mixture is very smooth, about 5 minutes. Add the vanilla and orange juice and beat until incorporated, 1 minute. Pour the filling into the prepared crust, and bake until brown and springy-firm, about 1 1/2 hours. Allow to cool for 4 hours. Serve with peach coulis. PEACH COULIS Combine all in a small saucepan and cook over low heat for 15 minutes, allowing it to form its own syrup. Cool and top either the whole cheesecake or individual slices with this topping. Garnish with fresh peach slices, mint and powdered sugar. Yield: 12 dessert servings
