1. Wash hands with soap and water.

2. Rinse fresh produce.

3. In a small bowl, mix together graham cracker crumbs, 1 tablespoon sugar and melted butter. Divide mixture evenly between 4 glass bowls or jars. Lightly press to form bottom crust.

4. In a mixing bowl, beat cream cheese with electric mixer until light and fluffy, about 1 minute. Slowly add confectioners’ sugar, while continuing to mix, until fully incorporated. Add orange zest and 1 teaspoon vanilla and mix to combine.

5. Pipe or spoon cream cheese mixture on top of graham cracker crumbs, then cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.

6. Prepare chutney by combining frozen cranberries, water, orange juice, remaining 1/4 cup sugar and 1/4 teaspoon vanilla in a medium saucepan. Bring mixture to a boil, while stirring, and reduce heat to simmer.

7. Cook, while stirring occasionally, 10 to 15 minutes until cranberries break down and mixture starts to thicken. Carefully transfer to a small bowl and refrigerate.

7. When ready to serve, uncover cheesecakes and top with cranberry chutney.
