Thanks to my friend Aimee, who's hosting a Link-up party over @ Thanks for that Info, I have a wonderful Tuesday blog topic... "DESSERT" (or DIZZERRRT, for all the Kanye West Fans out there - wherever you are!)
Those who know me fully expect this to be about something chocolate - and, well, it is - but not dark or milk chocolate. I'm talking about White Chocolate... I'm talking about
White Chocolate Raspberry Truffle Cheesecake from none other than the Cheesecake Factory. It was love at first taste on June 8th, 2006, when I ate at the Cheesecake Factory for the very first time in my life in Caesar's Palace, Las Vegas. The number of Cheesecake choices were overwhelming, so I went with my first "that sounds good" gut feeling and chose the White Chocolate Raspberry Truffle. It was absolutely heavenly cheesecake goodness, super rich but with just the right amount of tart raspberry swirl to balance out the sugary white chocolate center and dark chocolate crust.
Currently, I limit myself to the White Chocolate Raspberry Truffle Cheesecake Factory experience around twice per year - which keeps it *special* and very exciting. Thank goodness I am reasonably close to Columbus - where my cheesecake heaven is located at the Easton Town Center.
I've tried lots of copycats, but nothing has quite compared to the CF version. If anyone out there has a great White Chocolate Raspberry Cheesecake recipe they would like to share, please - let me know! And then, if it's successful, i'll blog about my weight gain.
So, what's your fave dessert? Blog about it, and link up at Aimee's Blog!
