INGREDIENTS ;-

  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

METHOD:-

For the crust, stir together cracker crumbs or (powdered in an electric mixture), melted butter, and 2 tablespoons sugar in a medium bowl. Press crumb mixture firmly onto bottom of pan. Bake until set, about 10 minutes. Let cool in pan on a wire rack. Reduce oven temperature to 325°.

Prepare the raspberry puree by processing raspberries in a food processor until smooth, about 30 seconds. Pass puree through a fine sieve into a small bowl, to remove most of the seeds. Discard the solids. Whisk in the 2 tablespoons sugar and set aside.

cream cheese filling:-  Put cream cheese in the bowl of an electric mixer and mix on medium speed until fluffy. This should take about 3 minutes. Then, with the mixer on low speed, add 1-1/2 cups sugar in a slow, steady stream. Add salt and vanilla and mix until well combined. Add the eggs, one at a time, mixing each until just combined. Pour cream cheese filling over your baked crust. Drop rasberry puree into drops and make swirls or designs. or if your kids are dancing in the kitchen (like mine were doing )just cover it fully on the top. 

Bake until cake is set but still slightly wobbly in center, 60 to 65 minutes.Transfer cake pan to rack to cool completely. Refrigerate uncovered for at least 6 hours or let it sit overnight . It firms up and gets completely chilled. Before unmolding the springform pan, run a  knife around the edge of the cake. Serve slices with some freshly whipped and slightly sweetened cream or a drizzle of left over raspberry puree, and a sprinkling of fresh raspberries, if desired.
