White Chocolate and Raspberry Cheesecake - Recipe

Serves 8 - 12

Preparation :15 Cook :45 Stand 1:00 Total 2:00

It's better to give out this recipe to your friends after serving it or they might just not leave. Really!

1 pound cream cheese, softened
1/3 cup sugar
3 each eggs, large
2 tablespoons lemon juice, fresh squeezed
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon salt
3 cups sour cream
8 ounces white chocolate, softened in the microwave
4-5 ounces seedless red raspberry jam, microwave until fluid
1 each GRAHAM CRACKER CRUST, Recipe below

Preparation:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Make the graham cracker crust mixture listed below and line the bottom and partial sides of a 10-inch spring form pan. Set aside.

Cream the cream cheese and sugar in a mixing bowl until smooth and light, about 3 minutes at medium speed. Add eggs one at a time until just blended in. Add lemon juice, vanilla, salt and whip until just blended. Add sour cream and blend until just mixed well. Add white chocolate that has melted until just smooth when stirred with a fork, and blend in. You have done well !!! Taste the batter as a reward.

Pour the batter into the crust-lined pan. If you have a squirt bottle or a pastry bag with a small circular tip, fill it with the warmed (but not hot) jelly. Starting in the center of the cheesecake, squirt a thin line of the jelly in a tight circular pinwheel pattern until you reach the edge of the pan. You should have about a half-inch between the lines in the circle.

Here is the part where you make the cheesecake beautiful! Take a thin bladed knife and starting in the center of the cheesecake, draw four lines from the center to the edge of the pan, basically quartering your cheesecake (making sure not to cut to deeply into the batter). You'll have to wipe the knife clean between each stroke. You'll know what to do with the wiped batter!

Now, take the knife and draw it from the edge of the pan to the center, between the lines you made previously. See how it pulls the jelly into a beautiful pattern. No one will believe that you made it yourself.

Place the pan into water bath about 1 inch deep and cook in your preheated oven for 45 minutes. After 45 minutes shut off the oven. DO NOT open the oven door!!! Leave the cake in the shut down oven for exactly 1 hour. Remove and chill thoroughly overnight before cutting.

FREE TIP: Do not use a knife when cutting cheesecake. Get a 18 inch piece of dental floss, hold it tightly in each hand and pass it straight down through the cake, then pull it out from one side and wipe it off. Continue.


White Chocolate Mousse with Swedish Huckleberry Sauce - Recipe

Huckleberries are similar to blueberries, so you could substitute a blueberry jelly.

Serves: 6

Preparation Tota:l 5:30

Ingredients:

1 teaspoon unflavored gelatin
1/4 cup cold water
1 cup huckleberry sauce
7 large egg yolks
8 ounces white chocolate
1 cup whipping cream

Preparation:

Soften the gelatin, by sprinkling it into the cold water. Allow it to soften for 10 minutes.

Put about 1 1/2 tablespoons of Huckleberry sauce into the bottom of 6 chilled wine glasses, making sure not to get the sauce on the side of the glass.

Combine the egg yolks and gelatin/water in a double boiler and whisk briskly over medium-low heat until the mixture is thick enough to form soft peaks.

Remove from heat and transfer to a large bowl to cool slightly.

Place the white chocolate in a microwavable bowl and heat on medium for 30 seconds. Remove the bowl from the microwave and stir with a fork.

If the chocolate is thoroughly melted, fold it into the egg mixture. If not continue to melt in 10 second intervals, then fold.

Whip the heavy cream until stiff peaks form. Fold into the egg and chocolate mix with a rubber spatula.

Carefully pour the mousse into the glasses over the huckleberry sauce. Chill for at least 5 hours. Overnight is better.

Good shot there, BriAna!
And interesting info too. I had never heard of covering pretzel sticks with chocolate before, but I remember that as kids we sometimes had brown chocolate together with salty pretzel sticks, and it tasted good! Does that cookie have such a salty pretzel stick beneath the chocolate ?

Yeah, you should, and I´m sure Doug is proud too, to call such a nice lass his daughter. :D

Greetings from pretzel motherland. :wink: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pretzel.
Cheers,
Betty
