  • Heat oven to 325°F.
  • Mix cookie crumbs and butter; press onto bottom of 9-inch springform pan sprayed with cooking spray. Bake 12 min.
  • Beat cream cheese and 1 cup sugar in large bowl with mixer until blended. Add sour cream, whipping cream and vanilla; mix well. Add eggs, 1 at a time, mixing on low speed after each just until blended. Pour over crust.
  • Bake 1 hour or until center is almost set. Run knife around rim of pan to loosen cake; cool before removing rim. Refrigerate cheesecake 4 hours.
  • Meanwhile, bring 1 cup raspberries, remaining sugar, jam and water to boil in saucepan; simmer on medium-low heat 5 min. or until thickened, stirring occasionally. Cool slightly. Pour into blender. Add lemon juice; blend until smooth. Refrigerate until ready to use.
  • Spoon raspberry sauce over cheesecake just before serving; top with remaining raspberries.

Special Equipment Needed


Prepare with PHILADELPHIA Neufchatel Cheese, and BREAKSTONE'S Reduced Fat or KNUDSEN'S Light Sour Cream.

How to Soften Cream Cheese

Place completely unwrapped packages of cream cheese in microwaveable bowl. Microwave on HIGH 45 sec. or until slightly softened.

How to Bake in 13x9-inch Pan

Prepare as directed, substituting a greased foil-lined 13x9-inch pan for the springform pan, and reducing the baking time to 40 to 45 min. or until center is almost set. Use foil handles to remove chilled cheesecake from pan before cutting to serve.


If using a dark nonstick 9-inch springform pan, reduce oven temperature to 300°F.
