Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method


Cooking Directions:
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
1 prepared 9" chocolate crumb crust
=== FILLING ===
1 pound cream cheese -- softened
1/2 cup sugar
2 eggs
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
=== RASPBERRY MOUSSE ===
1 1/2 teaspoons gelatin
1 1/2 tablespoons cold water
1/2 cup raspberry preserves
2 tablespoons sugar
1 cup heavy whipping cream

For the Filling: Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Mix cream cheese, sugar,
eggs and vanilla with electric mixer on medium until thoroughly blended,
about 3 to 4 minutes. Pour into the prepared crust. Place on baking
sheet and bake for 25 minutes. Cool to refrigerated temperature.

For the Mousse: Sprinkle gelatin over cold water, stir and let stand 1
minute. Microwave on HIGH for 30 seconds or until gelatin is completely
dissolved. (Or heat on stove with 1 additional tablespoon of water.)
Combine gelatin with preserves. Chill 10 minutes.

Whip cream until soft peaks form. Add 2 tablespoons sugar and continue
whipping until stiff peaks form. Measure out 1 1/2 cups of whipped cream
for mousse and set aside. Refrigerate remainder of cream for topping.

Gently fold raspberry mixture into measured whipped cream. Spread
raspberry mousse on top of chilled cheesecake, mounding slightly in the
center. Chill 1 hour before serving.

To serve, cut cheesecake into 6 servings and top each piece with a dollop
of reserved whipped cream.
