Red Raspberry Cheesecake

Over Christmas we had many different family dinners and on one particular day my sister, Donna,  wowed us with 2 different wonderful recipes. I will share this one today. She made Red Raspberry Cheesecake.  I think I ate about 90 percent of this dish.  Right now I am wishing I had more of this. I will definitely be keeping this recipe close at hand.
