|White chocolate raspberry cheesecake|
One of the desserts that seems to haunt my memories is a white chocolate raspberry cheesecake. I can still taste the dark chocolate crust, the thin layer of raspberry preserves, and the white chocolate creaminess of the cheesecake. It was brilliant.
For my husband's birthday party, I started the journey to cheesecake nirvana by making a white chocolate raspberry cheesecake. It was good; not great. So for his birthday (his birthday party was the weekend before his birthday). I decided to attempt the Super Cheesecake. Did I succeed? Yes, I made the cheesecake of my dreams.
16 (180 g) Chocolate Sandwich Cookies (Oreo Cookies)
6 Tbsp of Unsalted Butter, Melted
1/4 Cup (90 g) of Raspberry Preserves
Grease a 10 inch springform pan. Preheat the oven to 315F/160 C/Gas Mark 3. Put the Oreo cookies into a food processor with the metal blade and process until they are crumbs.

12 Oz. (340 g) of White Chocolate
3 (8 oz/ 227 g) of Cream Cheese, Room Temperature
1/2 Cup ( 113 g) of Sugar
3 Large Eggs, Room Temperature
Carefully heat the white chocolate slowly over low heat in a double boiler. (It is easy to scorch white chocolate). Heat, stirring frequently until the chocolate is melted and smooth.

Combine the cream cheese and sugar in a large mixing bowl until well combined. Next add the eggs one at a time and mix each egg into the cream cheese until well combined. Scrape the bowl as necessary (with my mixer I need to do this frequently). Once the eggs are added, add the white chocolate. Once again, scrape the bowl as needed. Mix until the white chocolate is combined and the cream cheese filling is smooth.
