While thinking of ingredients for our rocky road slice, I mistakenly thought we needed fresh raspberries.  When I walked through a local market, I saw some and immediately bought them.  When I got home, I was informed we needed the jelly variety instead, but then my husband had the idea to make a baked cheesecake with the raspberries and white chocolate.  And this white chocolate berry cheesecake turned out amazingly brilliant!  That time, and every other time I’ve made it.  Even with dairy-free ingredients – like dairy-free cream cheese, coconut cream and white chocolate syrup.  It’s amazing.  Just trust me!

For the crust I used the gluten-free graham cracker crust, but two portions of it.  We really love this crust and it seems to work with most pies that would normally have a biscuit base.
