How to Make Raspberry Cream Cheesecake

CRUST:

To start, use parchment paper to line a 7-inch spring-form pan. First, add the graham crackers into a food processor or blender until it forms crumbs. Secondly, combine the crumbs, sugar, and melted butter until fully coated. Thirdly, place the crumbs into the base of the prepared pan, and gently press down, and up the sides. Next, place the crust into the freezer to chill.
In addition, use cold water to rent your raspberries and a colander and drain them using paper towels to remove excess water. Furthermore, keep the raspberries chilled in the fridge until you are ready to use them.

FILLING:

First, in a mixing bowl of a standing mixer, add in the cream cheese, heavy cream, sugar, and powdered sugar and beat on low until combined. Secondly, add in the vanilla and lemon juice, and use a spatula to scrape the sides of the bowl until blended. Thirdly, using the spatula again, make sure to scrape the sides of the bowl until smooth and creamy. Next, take the mixing bowl off of the mixer and place about 1 1/2 cups of the batter into a smaller bowl, and put it into the fridge.

In addition, add the sweetened whole raspberries into the rest of the batter, and using a spatula, gently fold until combined.

Furthermore, take the spring-form pan out of the freezer, and add the batter into the crust, and using a spatula smooth out evenly. Finally, place the pan into the freezer for three to four hours, or until set or firm when you touch it.

SECOND LAYER:

To start, in a medium-sized saucepan, addcup of water and bring to a boil, then take off the heat and add in the raspberry jello, until it dissolves. First, allow the jello to cool by setting the pan on a wire rack. Secondly, add in 1 cup of the heavy whipping cream, 2 tablespoons of sugar, and 1/2 teaspoons of the vanilla into a blender and pulse until combined. Thirdly, continue to blend at medium – medium-high speed until the mixture thickens. Next, switch off the blender and place the whole jar or picture into the fridge to chill.
In addition, when the cheesecake is firm to the touch, place the small bowl of cheesecake batter into cold jello and add the whipped cream to the jello and combine, until smooth. Furthermore, take the pan out of the freezer, and add the jello mixture onto the cheesecake layer, making the second layer using a spoon. Only pan back into the freezer and allow to chill overnight until set.

TO DECORATE:

To start, add the butter and cream cheese into a mixing bowl and combine using a whisk attachment until creamy and fluffy. First, one cup at a time, add in the powdered sugar, and beat on low until combined and smooth using a spatula to scrape the sides of the bowl as needed. Secondly, separate the frosting into two separate bowls, and add the hot pink food coloring gel into one until you have your desired color reached.
First, use a 10-inch wide piece of plastic wrap and place it on a smooth surface. Secondly, create two long ribbons with the white and pink frosting, lengthwise in the middle of the plastic wrap. Thirdly, using your hands, you will want to roll the plastic wrap around the frosting, creating a long tube. Next, you will need to cut off only one end of the plastic wrap and add it into a pastry bag with a star tip. In addition, use the pastry bag to create swirled frosting on the cookies, and bring it up to a peak. Furthermore, you can place some raspberries on top of each of the swirls and then place them into the fridge to cool until ready. Finally, take the spring-form off of the pan when you are ready to serve. Slice the cheesecake into 2-inch pieces.
Serve and Enjoy!

Placing the cheesecake into an airtight container is the best way to store the recipe. Using an airtight container for storage will keep the recipe moist and fresh. When storing, placing it in the fridge or freezer will help it last longer.

  • Remove the Spring-form pan from the freezer, and pour the cheesecake batter into the pan, smoothing out the batter with a spatula.  Place the pan back into the freezer for about 3 to 4 hours, or until the first layer is set, and firm to the touch.

SECOND LAYER:

  • Boil 1 cup of water in a Medium-sized Saucepan,  and when the water boils, remove the pan from the heat, and stir in the package of Raspberry Jello, continuing to stir until the Jello dissolves.  Set the pan on a cooling rack, and allow the Jello to completely cool.  In a blender; place the 1 cup of Heavy Whipping Cream, 2 Tablespoons of Sugar, and 1/2 teaspoon of Vanilla, and pulse a few times to mix.  Blend on medium - medium-high speed, until the Cream thickens.  Turn the Blender off, and place the Blender jar or pitcher in the refrigerator.

Place a Raspberry on top of each swirl of Frosting, and place the cheesecake back in the freezer until time to serve.  When ready to serve, remove the Spring-form from the pan, and slice the Cheesecake into 2-inch pieces. Serve, and Enjoy!

Notes

Make sure that you leave the Butter and Cream Cheese called for in this recipe, out on the counter until it is soft.  The Frosting will not mix correctly if the Butter and Cream Cheese are cold, both need to be soft, and at room temperature.  ALSO:  Using the Blender to whip the cream is really a great way to whip the cream to a thick consistency.  I used the Ninja Blender/Food Processor, and it was done in no time.  I checked it after a few seconds and kept checking it until it was thick and creamy.
