Southern Pineapple Orange Swirl Cheesecake is a delightful dessert that combines the tropical flavors of pineapple and orange with the creamy richness of cheesecake. Here’s how you can make it:

7. **Chill and serve:**
– Remove the cheesecake from the oven and let it cool in the pan on a wire rack for 10 minutes.
– Run a knife around the edges of the pan to loosen the cheesecake, then remove the sides of the pan.
– Allow the cheesecake to cool completely, then refrigerate for at least 4 hours or overnight before serving.


8. **Serve:**

### Tips:
– Ensure the cream cheese is softened at room temperature to prevent lumps in the cheesecake batter.
– Use good quality pineapple preserves and orange marmalade for the swirl topping to enhance the flavor.
