Ingredients

  • 2 cups vanilla wafers (about 60 wafers)
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • FILLING:
  • 4 packages (8 ounces each) cream cheese, softened
  • 1-1/4 cups sugar
  • 1 tablespoon Triple Sec
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 4 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1/3 cup seedless raspberry spreadable fruit
  • 1/2 teaspoon raspberry extract
  • TOPPING:
  • 2 cups (16 ounces) sour cream
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon almond extract

Directions

Place a greased 10-in. springform pan on a double thickness of heavy-duty foil (about 18 in. square). Securely wrap foil around pan. In a small bowl, combine the wafer crumbs, butter and sugar. Press onto the bottom and 1 in. up the sides of prepared pan.
In a large bowl, beat cream cheese and sugar until smooth. Beat in the Triple Sec, extract and salt. Add eggs; beat on low speed just until combined.
Remove 1 cup batter to a small bowl; stir in spreadable fruit and extract until well blended. Pour plain batter over crust. Drop raspberry batter by tablespoons over plain batter; spread evenly. Place springform pan in a large baking pan; add 1 in. of hot water to larger pan.
Bake at 325° for 50-60 minutes or until almost set and top appears dull. Remove springform pan from water bath. Let stand for 5 minutes.
For topping, combine all the ingredients; spread over top of cheesecake. Bake 5 minutes longer. Cool on a wire rack for 10 minutes. Carefully run a knife around edge of pan to loosen; cool 1 hour longer. Refrigerate overnight. Remove sides of pan. Yield: 14 servings.
