3 Tbsp. butter or margarine
1 1/2 c. graham cracker crumbs
1 1/2 lbs. cream cheese
2 c. sour cream
10 1/2 oz. fresh goat cheese
1 1/2 c. sugar
3 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
1 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice
1 tsp. orange zest finely grated or chopped
1 Tbsp. Grand Marnier
1 c. strawberry jam

Bring the cheese to room temperature. Preheat oven to 350*. Grease a 9 or 10 inch springform cake pan with butter or cooking spray. In a small bowl, blend cracker crumbs and butter, and press into the cake pan. Bake for 7-8 minutes to lightly brown crust. In a mixer, blend cream cheese only for 5 minutes. Add 1 c. of sour cream, goat cheese, and sugar, and continue beating for 5 minutes. Add eggs one at a time, lemon juice, vanilla and orange zest, and continue beating for 1 minute. Pour cheesecake batter into a cake pan and bake for 45 minutes, reduce heat to 300* and continue baking 30 minutes or until the cake is set. Remove and allow to totally cool before the next step. Mix the Grand Marnier with 1 c. of sour cream and spread evenly on top of the cake. Mix the strawberry jam with some water for sauce. Cut the cake into 14-16 slices and pour sauce over the center of each slice.
