Categories : Dessert
Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method -- -- --
3 tablespoons cold water
2 tablespoons gelatin
2 cups raspberries
1/4 cup raspberry liqueur
1/2 pound cream cheese -- at room temperature
2/3 cup sour cream
2 eggs -- separated
1/2 cup sugar
1 1/3 cups oatmeal cookies -- crushed
4 tablespoons butter -- melted
2 tablespoons light brown sugar
1/3 cup chopped walnuts
2/3 cup heavy cream -- whipped
1.) Make the cookie crust: mix together the cookies, butter, light brown
sugar, and walnuts and press evenly over the bottom of a 9 inch springform pan.
2.) Put the measured water into a heatproof bowl, sprinkle the gelatin over
the top, and leave until spongy.
3.) Meanwhile, puree the raspberries in a food processor, then push them
through a nylon strainer to remove the seeds. Stir in the framboise liqueur.
4.) Put the cream cheese into a large bowl and beat until soft and smooth.
Add the sour cream and egg yolks and beat until well blended.
5.) Stand the bowl of gelatin in a saucepan of hot water and heat gently
until it dissolves. Stir the gelatin into the cheese mixture.
6.) Make the filling:
a.) Beat the egg whites until stiff but not dry. Add the sugar, 1
teaspoon at a time, and whisk until all the sugar is incorporated and the
meringue mixture is stiff and glossy.
b.) Turn the cheese mixture into the meringue and fold together,
blending well. Leave the mixture to thicken slightly.
c.) Fold in the raspberry puree, swirling it in just enough to give an
attractive marbled effect.
d.) Pour the mixture carefully onto the cookie base and chill until set.
7.) Use a knife to loosen the sides of the cheesecake from the pan, then
remove the cheesecake. Slide onto a serving plate. Pipe whipped cream around
the edge and decorate with raspberries and mint sprigs. - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - NOTES : To achieve an attractive marbled effect, fold in the raspberry puree
lightly but thoroughly so that it forms thin streaks. If there are large
areas of raspberry puree, they will not set with the rest of the mixture.
