Delectable Tuesday Blog Hop 2/15 - White Chocolate Raspberry Cheesecake

Happy Valentine's Day! I honored the day by dyeing a whole bunch of pink silk yarn. It's absolutely scrumptious!

To go along with the holiday of romance I'm sharing with you a dessert to beat all desserts. Cheesecake is soooo yummy!



White Chocolate Raspberry Cheesecake

1 cup chocolate cookie crumbs
3 tbls. sugar
1/4 cup butter, melted
1 (10 oz.) package frozen raspberries
2 tbls. sugar
2 tsps. cornstarch
1/2 cup water
2 cups white chocolate chips
1/2 cup half and half cream
3 (8 oz.) packages cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup sugar
3 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla extract

In a medium bowl, mix together cookie crumbs, 3 tbls. sugar and melted butter. Press mixture into the bottom of a 9 inch springform pan.

In a saucepan, combine raspberries, 2 tbls. sugar, cornstarch and water. Bring to a boil and continue boiling for 5 minutes or until sauce is thick. Strain sauce through a mesh strainer to remove seeds.

Preheat oven to 325*. In a metal bowl over a pan of simmering water, melt chocolate chips with half and half stirring occasionally until smooth.

In a large bowl, mix together cream cheese and 1/2 cup sugar until smooth. Beat in eggs one at a time. Blend in vanilla and melted white chocolate. Pour half of batter over crust. Spoon 3 tablespoons raspberry sauce over batter. Pour remaining cheesecake batter into pan, and again spoon 3 tablespoons raspberry sauce over the top. Swirl batter with the tip of a knife to create a marbled effect.


Bake for 55 to 60 minutes, or until filling is set. Cool, cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate for 8 hours before removing from pan. Serve with remaining raspberry sauce.
