Test Kitchen tips :
Elevate the look of this dessert by making candied orange slices to top the cheesecake. Bring 2-1/4 cups sugar and 2 cups water to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to medium; add 10-12 medium orange slices. Continue to cook until oranges are translucent, about 20 minutes. Reduce heat to low; cook until slices are tender but still intact, turning occasionally, about 10 minutes longer. Remove with slotted spoon. Cool completely on wire rack. Let stand at room temperature.
