This boozy swirled cheesecake tastes like a holiday celebration. Juicy prunes are first soaked in a heady mixture of spiced rum, orange zest and orange juice, puréed then swirled on top of a rummy cheesecake filling. As if that wasn’t perfection on its own, each slice is then topped with a rich, salted caramel sauce. It’s the cheesecake of your dreams. The water bath and extra cooling time in the oven ensure that the top of the cheesecake doesn’t crack, so make sure to follow those steps! By Alison Needham of A Girl Defloured.

You can also use a fresh, homemade whipped cream frosting rather than a glaze – a Vasey family favorite!
