My Daughter Graduated from business college and we were having a big family BBQ. for her, these are two of her favorite things and she LOVES Cheesecake, It was my first time making this one and I must say "WHEW" it was alot of work, with the 4 different steps, but, the end result was AMAZING. She Loved it and the whole family LOVED it. I did as was suggested by one and did 2 cups of cookie crumbs. Difinitely will do again as it was just the right amount of crust, might pull back to 1/3 cup butter though and I did not add sugar,it was sweet enough. I also started the whole process by putting frozen raspberries in food processer with the water, then strained, but I think you could also just let them thaw in a bowl, then do in thirds and use spatula and push through strainer, into pan, then continue with, water, sugar and cornstarch, I did end up adding 1/4 cup sugar, as my berries were very tart. I also used good quality white Choc. (Ghirardelli) Its smooth and doesn't have the chalky aftertaste. IMO, I also used 1/3 less fat Cream Cheese, and the 9in springform. It was perfect. I also set whole pan on a sheet of heavy duty foil and went up to top of pan and did a water bath then turned off oven after an hour and let it sit in oven with door cracked for hour. Then into fridge. Came out Beautifully. Also as I alternated cheesecake batter with raspberry puree I lightly swiriled each layer which was 3 and topped with remaining raspberry puree. Next time I will make a day ahead.
