Ingredients
  

Raspberry Sauce

  • 2 cups (1 pints) red raspberries or black raspberries fresh or frozen
  • ½ cup water
  • 3 teas cornstarch
  • cup Granulated sugar

Oreo Crust (chocolate cookie crust)

  • 3 cups Oreos crushed about 35 Oreos
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • 3 Tbls butter melted

Cheesecake Batter

  • 2 cups White chocolate chips 1- 11.5oz package
  • ½ cup half and half
  • 3 bricks cream cheese 8 oz bricks
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 teas Vanilla extract

Instructions
 

For the Raspberry Sauce Recipe

  • Place the raspberries, water, cornstarch and ⅓ cup of sugar into a 2 quart saucepan over medium heat
  • Bring to a full boil for about 10 minutes, stirring it frequently, until the raspberries begin to break apart and the raspberry sauce thickens to coat the back of a spoon
  • Remove the raspberry sauce from the heat for 5-10 minutes and then strain the seeds out through a mesh strainer. Refrigerate the raspberry sauce until needed

Oreo Crust

  • Crush the whole Oreos (or chocolate cookies) in a food processor, or in a plastic bag with a rolling pin, until it becomes fine crumbs
  • Mix in ¼ cup sugar and the melted butter until combined
  • Press the prepared Oreo crust into the bottom of a 10 inch non-stick springform pan (or a springform pan sprayed with cooking oil) evenly, allowing the Oreo crust to go up the sides somewhat. Set aside

Cheesecake Batter

  • Pre-heat the oven to 325°F
  • In a saucepan over low heat, or double boiler, melt the white chocolate chips together with the half and half, stirring until combined together. Set aside to cool
  • With a stand mixer, cream together the room temperature cream cheese and sugar
  • Add the vanilla extract and room temperature eggs one at a time and mix until just combined
  • Add the melted white chocolate mixture and combine
  • Pour half of the cheesecake batter into the springform pan with the Oreo crust
  • Drop 4-5 tablespoons of the raspberry sauce over the batter
  • Add the remaining cheesecake batter over the top and drop another 3-4 tablespoons of the raspberry topping on top
  • With a butter knife, swirl the raspberry sauce with the cheesecake just until it looks swirled, don't over swirl it.
  • Bake the cheesecake in the preheated oven for 65-70 minutes or until it is set around the edges. The middle can still be jiggly
  • Turn the oven off and open the oven door slightly and let the cheesecake rest in the cooling oven for an hour
  • Take the cheesecake out of the oven and let it cool on a rack until it is just warm. Proceed to place the cheesecake in the fridge for 8-12 hours, preferably 24 hours before serving
  • Cut and serve the white chocolate raspberry cheesecake and top with remaining raspberry sauce and fresh raspberries
