postheadericon Olive Garden’s White Chocolate Rasberry Cheesecake

This is one of my favorite desserts to eat. Chocolate and rasberry are a perfect pair together. There are only two places around that I like to get this scrumptious desert from, Olive Garden and the Cheesecake Factory. Enjoy.

Ingredients:

 1 cup chocolate cookie crumbs
3 tablespoons white sugar
1/4 cup butter
1 (10 ounce) package frozen raspberries
2 tablespoons white sugar
2 teaspoons cornstarch
1/2 cup water
2 cups white chocolate chips
1/2 cup half-and-half cream
3 (8 ounce) packages creamcheese
1/2 cup white sugar
3 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

2. In a medium bowl, mix cookie crumbs, 3 tablespoons sugar and melted butter until well blended.

3. Press mixture onto the bottom of a 9 inch springform pan.

To make raspberry sauce: In a medium sauce pan, combine raspberries, 2 tablespoons sugar, cornstarch and water. Bring to boil.

4. Continue boiling until sauce is thick and clear. Strain sauce through a mesh strainer to remove seeds. Set aside.

5. In the top of a double boiler, heat white chocolate chips and half-and-half, stirring occasionally, until chocolate is melted and smooth.

6. Remove from heat and allow to cool to luke warm.

7. In a large bowl, beat cream cheese and 1/2 cup sugar until smooth. Beat in eggs, one at a time.

9. Spoon 3 tablespoons of raspberry sauce over batter. Pour remaining batter into pan. Spoon another 3 tablespoons of raspberry sauce over the top of the batter. Swirl batter with the tip of a knife to create a marbled effect.

10. Bake in the preheated oven for 55 to 60 minutes, or until filling is set.

11. Allow to cool, cover with plastic, and refrigerate for 8 hours before removing from pan.

12. Serve with remaining raspberry sauce.
