Reviews for Raspberry & White Chocolate Cheesecake
Sort By :
"This is so rich, but so good. The raspberry puree is worth the effort. I used reduced fat (not fat free) cream cheese and it turned fine."
"I made this for the first time for my neice who was bragging about a similar cheesecake that she'd gotten at a restaurant. Well, she was blown away by this cheesecake. It was harder to make than most other recipies but it was well worth the effort! I did however use a graham cracker and almond crust which was awesome. It complimented the raspberry and white chocolate beautifully."
"It was delicious but the top got more brown than I liked so I just took the top off with a warm wet knife and it was perfect for a raspberry topping."
"It spilled over my springform pan. It was the right size and I followed the directions Did anyone else have this problem? It tasted great but am afraid to try it again."
"It was a long process to make this, but it was very, very good!"
