White Chocolate Raspberry Cheesecake
Why I Love This Recipe
Ingredients You'll Need
* 1-1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
* 1/4 cup sugar
* 1/3 cup butter, melted
* 3 packages (8 ounces each) cream cheese, softened
* 3/4 cup sugar
* 1/3 cup sour cream
* 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
* 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
* 3 eggs, lightly beaten
* 1 package (10 to 12 ounces) vanilla or white chips
* 1/4 cup seedless raspberry jam
In a small bowl, combine the graham cracker crumbs, sugar and butter. Press onto the bottom of a greased 9-in. springform pan; set aside.
In a large bowl, beat cream cheese and sugar until smooth. Beat in the sour cream, flour and vanilla. Add eggs; beat on low speed just until combined. Fold in the chips. Pour over crust.
In a microwave-safe bowl, melt raspberry jam; stir until smooth. Drop by teaspoonfuls over batter; cut through batter with a knife to swirl.
Place pan on a double thickness of heavy-duty foil (about 16 in. square). Securely wrap foil around pan. Place in a large baking pan; add 1 in. of hot water to larger pan.
Bake at 325° for 80-85 minutes or until center is just set. Cool on a wire rack for 10 minutes. Carefully run a knife around edge of pan to loosen; cool 1 hour longer. Cover and refrigerate overnight. Remove sides of pan. Yield: 12 servings.
