This is an excellent cheesecake and I love the crust. I use Lorna Doone cookies! It is worth the work!

How to Make Raspberry White Chocolate Cheesecake

Step-by-Step

  1. For crust:.

    1.) Combine crushed cookies and chopped almonds in a small mixing bowl;

    2.) Stir in melted butter or margarine.

    3.) Press mixture evenly onto bottom of an 8-inch springform pan. Set pan aside.
  2. For filling:.

    1.) Beat cream cheese and melted baking chocolate in a large mixing bowl with an electric mixer on medium-high speed until combined.

    2.) Add sugar, beating mixture until smooth.

    3.) Add eggs, sour cream and vanilla; beat on low speed until just combined. DO NOT OVERBEAT.

    4.) Pour filling into crust-lined pan.
  3. Place pan on a shallow baking pan in the oven.

    Bake at 350°F for 45 minutes or until center appears nearly set when gently shaken. (This cheesecake puffs during baking then settles as it cooks); DO NOT OVERBAKE!
  4. Remove springform pan from baking pan and cool on wire rack for 15 minutes.
  5. Use a small metal spatula to loosen the sides of pan and cool for another hour.
  6. Cover and chill for an additional 4 hours.
  7. For sauce:.

    1.) Melt preserves in a small saucepan over low heat.

    2.) Add berries.

    3.) Heat gently just until sauce simmers; cool.
  8. To serve:.

    Cut cheesecake into wedges and drizzle some of the sauce over and around each serving.
  9. TIP: to toast almonds, place almonds in a non-stick pan and stir over medium-high heat until they start to brown. I add a tad of butter to assist with the browning process.
