White Chocolate Raspberry Cheesecake Recipe

As a dairy farmer’s wife, I have experience making cheesecake. In fact, most anything containing milk products is tasty in my book. If I’m out of cream cheese, it’s time to go to the grocery store! —Wendy Barkman, Breezewood, Pennsylvania
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. Bake: 1 hour 20 min. + chilling YIELD:12 servings


  • 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 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 package (10 to 12 ounces) white baking chips
  • 1/4 cup seedless raspberry jam


  • 1. 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.
  • 2. 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.
  • 3. In a microwave, melt raspberry jam; stir until smooth. Drop by teaspoonfuls over batter; cut through batter with a knife to swirl.

"I use the white chocolate recipe for the cheesecake body. Then the white chocolate raspberry recipe for the graham cracker crust and the raspberry preserves. I use a little more jam than the recipe calls for. It is fantastic!!!"

"I followed the recipe to the letter. After 40 minutes the cheesecake was overbrowned. I covered it with foil the rest of the time. It sure didn't look like the picture. Cracked terrible and I was not sure it got done in the middle. The raspberrysmelled divine and it did taste good. I will have to try again."

""This is the best cheesecake I've ever had"....was the review at Christmas dinner today. Can't get much better than that! And coming from a man who likes to eat well!

Fairly easy, be sure to read through and save yourself some time. I had a 10" pan which worked just fine. Cooking time was a bit longer....but in the wee hours I didn't keep track (sorry). I garnished with fresh raspberries. Some thought there should be a sauce, but my best personal reviewer said, "It's so moist it doesn't need a sauce"."
