Tall And Creamy Cheesecake With Raspberry Swirl

I asked Colt last week what he wanted for dessert and he requested a Lemon Cheesecake With Raspberry Swirl. 

So, I took my favorite Tall and Creamy Lemon Cheesecake from Dori Greenspahttps://www.serenabakessimplyfromscratch.com/2015/09/tall-and-creamy-cheesecake-with.html and added a luscious Raspberry Swirl.

Then I remembered why I don't make cheesecake very often because over the next few days I found myself in the fridge for a slice of cheesecake here, and a slice of cheesecake there.

So, I told Colt he better take the remaining cheesecake to share at work because otherwise I was finishing it off, and by it I meant a remaining half a cheesecake! 

This Cheesecake is that good!  

Tall and Creamy Cheesecake With Raspberry Swirl is light and airy and melts on your tongue like butter with every bite. The gorgeous Raspberry Swirl not only looks elegant but adds a nice contrast of flavor.  This is the perfect dessert for company, or the holidays, and it's fairly easy to make, but so elegant.

Tall and Creamy Cheesecake With Raspberry Swirl just happens to be one of my all time favorite Cheesecakes.

Grease a 9"x3" spring form pan with butter. Wrap bottoms and sides of pan with a double layer of aluminum foil.

In a medium sized bowl stir together 1 3/4 cup Fine Graham Cracker Crumbs, 3 tablespoons Granulated Sugar and 1 pinch Salt. Slowly drizzle in 1/2 cup melted butter to coat crumbs evenly.

Add graham cracker mixture to pan and use a measuring cup to press crumbs across the bottom and up the sides of the pan.
Bake in a 350 degree oven on a baking sheet for 10 minutes.

Allow to cool and bring a kettle of water to a boil.

In a mixer fitted with a paddle attachment beat 32 ounces Room Temperature Cream Cheese for 5 minutes or until creamy and smooth. 

Scrape down sides of bowl and slowly add 1 1/3 cup Sugar and 1/2 teaspoon Salt while mixer is running.

Use a fine mesh sieve to strain seeds out of raspberry puree.

Evenly drop raspberry puree onto cheesecake leaving space between each drop. You will more then likely have extra puree that can be used for drizzling on plate later.

Using a toothpick draw swirls through dots. Try not to over swirl. I find 2 passes through each dot maximum is plenty.

Place cheesecake in a pan that is larger and carefully fill bottom pan with boiling water to about halfway up the sides being careful not to get water on cheesecake or inside of foil.

Bake for 1 hour 30 minutes. Turn off oven and prop door open. Allow cheesecake to sit in the water bath in the oven for an additional hour.

Tall Creamy Lemon Cheesecake with Raspberry Swirl is perfect dessert for Christmas & the holidays!

Carefully remove spring form pan out of the larger pan. Carefully remove foil.

Allow cheesecake to cool to room temperature. 

Cover cheesecake, and refrigerate cheesecake overnight before enjoying.

    1. You will have to leave space at the top. I'm guessing about 1/2". So you will more then likely have excess batter. It doesn't raise much but I wouldn't fill it all the way to the top to be safe! Have a great week, Serena
