Olive Garden Raspberry Mousse Cheesecake

Ingredients

Crust

  • 1 prepared 9-inch chocolate crumb crust

Filling

  • 1 pound cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Raspberry Mousse

  • 1 1/2 teaspoons gelatin
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons cold water
  • 1/2 cup raspberry preserves
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream

Instructions

  1. Heat oven to 325 degrees F.
  2. Filling: Mix cream cheese, sugar, eggs and vanilla extract with electric mixer on medium until thoroughly blended, about 3 to 4 minutes.
  3. Pour into the prepared crust. Place on baking sheet and bake for 25 minutes. Cool to refrigerated temperature.
  4. Raspberry Mousse: Sprinkle gelatin over cold water, stir and let stand 1 minute.
  5. Microwave on HIGH for 30 seconds or until gelatin is completely dissolved. (Or heat on stove with 1 additional tablespoon of water.) Combine gelatin with preserves. Chill 10 minutes.
  6. Whip cream until soft peaks form. Add 2 tablespoons sugar and continue whipping until stiff peaks form. Measure out 1 1/2 cups of whipped cream for mousse and set aside. Refrigerate remainder of cream for topping.
  7. Gently fold raspberry mixture into measured whipped cream. Spread raspberry mousse on top of chilled cheesecake, mounding slightly in the center. Chill 1 hour before serving.
  8. To serve, cut cheesecake into 6 servings and top each piece with a dollop of reserved whipped cream.
