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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
