  • 2 - 8 oz. pkg cream cheese, room temperature

  • 2/3 c sugar

  • 1/4 c sugar

  • 1 tsp lemon zest, grated

  • 2 Tbsp lemon juice

  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract

  • 3 lg eggs

  • yellow & red food coloring

  • cooking spray

  • 1/2 c sour cream


  • 1 roll refrigerated pie dough

  • all purpose flour

  • 1 Tbsp milk

  • 2 Tbsp sugar cinnamon mixture


  • 8 red swedish fish

  • 1 c strawberry jam

  • 3 strands green licorice twists

  • 6 black licorice dots

  • 3 Tbsp sour cream

  • yellow & red food coloring

  • 3 Tbsp chocolate covered raisins


Beat the cream cheese with a mixer until smooth. Add 2/3 C sugar, the lemon zest, lemon juice & vanilla; beat well. Beat in the eggs one at a time. Tint the batter orange with yellow & red food coloring.
2. Spray a 9" pie plate with cooking spray. Pour in the batter; bake at 350 degrees F until puffed & almost set, 25 - 30 minutes. Mix the sour cream & the remaining 1/4 C sugar; spread over the hot cheesecake & bake 5 more minutes. Let cool, then chill 2 hours.
Unroll the pie dough on a lightly floured surface & roll it out to flatten slightly. Brush the dough with the milk & sprinkle with the cinnamon sugar. Cut the dough into 2 1/2" wide strips.
4. Cut each strip into as many 2 1/2" triangles as possible. Place the triangles about 1" apart on 2 parchment lined baking sheets. Bake in batches at 450 degrees F until lightly golden, 7 - 10 minutes. Transfer to a rack & cool completely.
TOMATOES: Cut the Swedish Fish into 1/2" pieces & toss with 2 Tbsp strawberry jam.
CHILES: Cut the green licorice on the diagonal into 1/8" thick slices.

OLIVES: Cut the black licorice dots into 1/4" thick rounds. Use a straw or pastry tip to remove a circle from the center of each round.

CHEESE: Tint the sour cream orange with yellow & red food coloring to look like melted cheese. Spoon the orange sour cream into a resealable plastic bag. Press out the excess air & seal.

Press the pie chips into the cheesecake. Add the black licorice (olives), chocolate covered raisins (beans) & some green licorice (chiles) & jam coated swedish fish (tomatoes).

Snip a small corner from the bag of orange sour cream & pipe a few dots on the cheesecake for the melted cheese. Serve with extra chips on the side, and make extra salsa by mixing leftover candies & jam.
