1 1/3 cups graham cracker crumbs
1/4 cup butter, melted
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
1 cup granulated sugar
4 (8-ounce) packages cream cheese, softened
1 (10-ounce) package (2 cups) white baking chips, or 12 ounces white chocolate, melted
1 cup chocolate fudge ice cream topping, warmed
2 (10-ounce) packages frozen raspberries in syrup, thawed
1 tablespoon cornstarch
Prehat oven to 325 degrees F (160 C).
Combine all crust ingredients in small bowl. Press onto bottom of ungreased 10-inch springform pan. Bake 10 minutes. Cool.
Combine 1 cup sugar and cream cheese in large bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy (3 to 4 minutes). Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition (1 to 2 minutes). Stir in melted white baking chips. (Mixture may look lumpy.)
Pour half of cream cheese mixture into prepared crust. Spoon 1/2 cup chocolate fudge topping over cream cheese mixture in crust; swirl with knife. Top with remaining cream cheese mixture. Spoon remaining chocolate fudge topping over cream cheese mixture; swirl with knife. Bake for 65 to 75 minutes or until just set 2 inches from edge of pan.
Turn off oven; with oven door open at least 4 inches, let cheesecake stand in oven at least 30 minutes or until center is set. Remove from oven. Loosen sides of cheesecake from pan by running knife around inside of pan. Cool completely. Cover; refrigerate 8 hours or overnight.
Meanwhile, press raspberries through strainer; discard seeds. (Strain raspberries again, if seeds still remain.) Combine strained raspberries and cornstarch with wire whisk in 1-quart saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until mixture comes to a full boil (4 to 8 minutes). Boil, stirring constantly, until slightly thickened (2 minutes). Remove from heat. Cool 5 minutes; stir. Cover; refrigerate until serving time.
To serve, spoon raspberry sauce over each slice of cheesecake. Store refrigerated.
