This really is cheesecake for beginners but it is sooo deliciously rich & creamy - you have to try it. I've acquired this recipe from a friend who simply serves this with fresh raspberries which is wonderful but because I'm prone to distraction & browning the top (usually one half rather than the other) I like to make the berry topping given & let it soak in & set before serving. It's amazing. I find myself contemplating any excuse under the sun worthy of making it again & again & again!!!
