Cranberry and White Chocolate Cheesecake Recipe

Cake:

4 oz White chocolate, chopped 2 pk 8-oz cream cheese 3/4 c Sugar 3 Eggs 2 ts Vanilla pn Salt 3 c

Sour cream

Crust:

1 c Graham cracker crumbs 2 TB Butter, melted 2 oz White chocolate, chopped

Glaze:

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.
