Raspberry White Chocolate Cheesecake

This is one of my very favorites! It does make a very large dessert. I made this for an office gathering, and for months afterward a man from our Montreal office kept talking about it every time he came back to town. You can use frozen raspberries if fresh are not available – it will be just as good – thaw, drain and pat them dry before using.
