First Raspberries and Cheesecake
The first raspberries of the season are finally here! It looks like we will have a bumper crop this year. Our bushes are the Heritage variety and we planted them in 2001 so they are well established now. They made a beautiful topping for the last piece of Vanilla Bean Cheesecake. On a recent visit to The Cheesecake Factory I tried their Vanilla Bean Cheesecake, it was so delicious that I came home and found a recipe that is supposed to mimic theirs on Recipe Goldmines site. My family gave it rave reviews even though I didn't top it off with with vanilla mousse and whipped cream like Cheesecake Factory does. The raspberries look pretty and have fewer calories!
