White chocolate raspberry cheesecake has become one of our favorite desserts lately. I have made this twice in one week and both times the whole thing disappeared.
You will want to make this for father’s Day, that way you can become the favorite child!!!
The chocolate crust mixed with the white chocolate cheesecake and raspberry jam is just so good.
If your cheesecake cracks, you can cover it up with whipped cream; believe me, it will get eaten.

How Do I Keep my Cheesecake From Cracking?
- The trick to a cheesecake not cracking is to wrap it in foil, and place it in a pan of water to bake or you can use a 9″ x 13″ pan of water and place it on the lower rack to keep the oven nice and moist.
- Another thing you can do is to wrap the outer part of your cheese cake pan with foil and set it in a pan of water. Either way will work nicely.
This is a picture of a crust that was not cooked in the water bath, or you could also try placing a pan of water on the shelf below your cheesecake to bake it.
As you can see in this picture, I went ahead and wrapped the bottom of my spring form pan in foil so that water did not seep in.
This way made it so that my cheesecake did not crack after it was cooked but as you can see by the edges, it did not crust over on the edge of the cheesecake like the one not cooked in water did. However the one cooked in water was much brighter in color with the redness of the raspberry jam.
Both ways have their pros and cons. I like the way the single slice of cheese cake looked in the center as the jam seemed to go a little more marble looking down through the cheesecake. And the one I cooked in water tended to stay more on the top of the cheesecake.
Here is a picture of the Oreo crust, or you could do a graham cracker or vanilla wafer crust if you do not care for Oreos.
