Orange Cream Cheesecakes

The base of this cheesecake is a store-bought Jello Cheesecake mix. With the addition of some orange zest and a dollup of whipped cream, it tastes like a gourmet dessert.

1 pkg. sugar cookie dough (found in refrigerator section)
1 box Jello Cheesecake Dessert Mix (Plain)
1 1/2 cups milk
1 tsp. vanilla
2 T. grated orange zest
whipping cream & orange slices

Bake sugar cookies according to package directions. Cool. In the bottom of a small dessert cup or teacup, place one cookie and press down to form crust.
Beat the cheesecake filling mix and milk on low speed for 30 seconds (reserve the graham cracker crust mix for another use). Beat on medium speed for 3 minutes. Stir in orange zest and vanilla until combined. Spoon filling mixture over each cookie. Refrigerate for at least one hour. Top each cheesecake cup with whipped cream and an orange slice.
