  4. 3. Mix thoroughly until all crumbs are evenly coated.
  5. 4. Spread crumbs into a 9" - 10" springform pan that has been sprayed w/PAM or coated w/butter.
  6. 5. Place in a pre-heated 425 degree oven & bake for approximately 10 minute.

  9. 7. Add eggs, 1 @ a time, mix until thoroughly combined.
  10. 8. Add extract & Chambourd liqueur
  11. 9. Pour into springform pan.
  12. 10. Place the pan in another larger pan & pour very hot (almost boiling) water until it is about 1 - 1 1/2 inch up sides.
  13. 11. Bake @ 425 degrees for 10 - 15 min., then lower temperature to 325 degrees & bake for approximately 45 - 50 minutes.
  14. After the 45 - 50 minutes are up, turn off oven & just crack the door open. DO NOT REMOVE CHEESECAKE FROM OVEN until you can remove w/your bare hands. Let cool completely, cover w/plastic wrap & place in refrigerator until 1/2 hour before serving.
  15. Place chocolate in a double boiler over hot (not boiling) water. DO NOT LET WATER TOUCH BOTTOM OF DOUBLE BOILER PAN. Add coffee & cream & stir until very smooth. Remove the rim from around the springform pan & place on a wire rack w/wax paper underneath. Pour chocolate over cheesecake & let cool.
  16. While chocolate is cooling, warm raspberry jam until it becomes liquid. Pour over fresh berries, mix until thoroughly coated & pour over cheesecake.
  17. **NOTE - Fresh raspberries can be soaked in the Chambourd liqueur prior to combining w/melted jam. This will give the cheesecake a wonderful additional & unexpected flavor.
