Ingredients

  • 1 ½ cups graham cracker crumbs
  • ⅓ cup melted butter
  • 1 ½ cups fresh raspberries
  • 2 cups cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3 large eggs
  • ½ cup sour cream
  • ½ cup heavy cream

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 325°F (160°C). Grease a 9-inch (23 cm) springform pan.
  2. In a bowl, combine graham cracker crumbs and melted butter. Press this mixture into the bottom of the prepared pan.
  3. Puree the raspberries in a blender or food processor until smooth. Pass the puree through a fine sieve to remove seeds.
  4. In a large mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese, sugar, and vanilla extract until smooth. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition.
  5. Stir in the sour cream and raspberry puree until well combined.
  6. Pour the cheesecake batter over the crust in the pan. Smooth the top with a spatula.
  7. Bake in the preheated oven for 45-50 minutes or until the edges are set, and the center is slightly jiggly.
  8. Turn off the oven, crack the door, and let the cheesecake cool for 1 hour in the oven.
  9. Remove the cheesecake from the oven and refrigerate for at least 4 hours or until fully chilled.
  10. Before serving, whip the heavy cream until stiff peaks form and spread it over the cheesecake. Garnish with fresh raspberries.
