Raspberry Chocolate Truffle Cheesecake

2 c. chocolate cream-filled cookies, crushed
2 Tbsp. butter, melted

Before baking
16 oz. cream cheese, softened
3/4 c. sugar
1 c. white baking chocolate, melted and cooled
1/3 c. heavy whipping cream
3 tsp. vanilla
3 eggs, lightly beaten
3 Tbsp. seedless raspberry jam

Truffle Layer:
1 1/4 c. heavy whipping cream
1/3 c. sugar
2 c. semisweet chocolate chips
3 Tbsp. seedless raspberry jam

To make the crust: In a large bowl, combine crushed cookies and melted butter. Press into the bottom and up the sides of a greased 9 inch springform pan; set aside.

After baking
To make the filling: In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese and sugar until smooth. Beat in the melted white chocolate, cream, and vanilla. Add eggs; beat on low speed until just combined. Pour into crust. Drop jam by teaspoonfuls onto filling; swirl with a knife. Place pan on a rimmed cookie sheet.

Bake at 325 F for 40-55 minutes or until center is almost set. Cool on a wire rack for 10 minutes. Carefully run a knife around the pan to loosen; cool 1 hour longer.

With the truffle layer
Meanwhile, make the truffle layer: In a small saucepan combine cream and sugar. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly. Remove from heat; stir in chips and jam until smooth. Transfer to a bowl; refrigerate for about 1 hour or until slightly set. Then beat for 1-2 minutes or until light and fluffy. Gently spread over cheesecake. Refrigerate overnight.
