If I could pick a favorite dessert I would have to pick cheesecake. There is just something about the creamy texture of cheesecake that I just can't get enough of! This White Chocolate Raspberry Cheesecake was super easy and delicious!
Delicious White Chocolate Raspberry Cheesecake
Pre-made or store bought Graham Cracker Pie Crust
1 (10 ounce) package frozen raspberries
2 tablespoons white sugar
2 teaspoons cornstarch
1/2 cup water
2 cups white chocolate chips
1/2 cup half-and-half cream
3 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
In a saucepan, combine raspberries, 2 tablespoons sugar, cornstarch, and water. Bring to boil, and continue boiling 5 minutes, or until sauce is thick. Strain sauce through a mesh strainer to remove seeds.
Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. In a pan on the stove, melt white chocolate chips with half-and-half on low-medium meat. Stir occasionally until smooth then set aside.
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. (I added some of the seeds back into the raspberry sauce because I LOVE raspberry seeds!)
