4 oz White chocolate, chopped 2 pk 8-oz cream cheese 3/4 c Sugar 3 Eggs 2 ts Vanilla pn Salt 3 c
1 c Graham cracker crumbs 2 TB Butter, melted 2 oz White chocolate, chopped
2 c Cranberries 1/3 c Sugar 1 ts Cornstarch Grated white chocolate for garnish if desired
Crust: Stir crumbs with butter until well moistened; stir in chocolate. Press into the bottom of a
greased 9-inch springform pan. Centre pan on a 20 X 14-inch piece of foil; press up tightly around
side of the pan. Bake in 325F oven for 8 minutes. Let cool on a rack.
Cake: In a double boiler, melt chocolate. Let cool. In a large bowl, beat cream cheese until
softened. Gradually beat in sugar; beat for 3 minutes or until fluffy. At low speed, beat in eggs,
one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in vanilla, chocolate, and salt; stir in sour
cream. Pour onto crust.
Set cake pan onto a larger shallow pan; pour in enough hot water to come 1 inch up the side. Bake
at 325 degrees F for 1 1/4 hours or until the edge is set but the center still jiggles slightly. Turn oven
off; let cool in the oven for 1 hour. Remove from larger pan and remove foil; let cool on a rack. Cover
and refrigerate overnight.
Glaze: In a saucepan, cook cranberries and 1/4 cup water, partially covered, just until boiling. Stir in
sugar and return to a boil; cook for 2 minutes or until sugar is dissolved, but berries have not
popped. Drain, reserving juice and berries separately.
Remove cake from pan; place on a cake plate. Return juice to saucepan; blend in cornstarch. Cook,
whisking until boiling and thickened; let cool slightly. Spoon berries around the edge of the cake.
Spoon glaze over the top. Refrigerate for 1 hour or until set. Garnish with chocolate gratings.
