Making the Filling

This Brie cheesecake with raspberry sauce recipe uses a combination of brie cheese, cream cheese, sour cream, eggs, sugar, and Grand Marnier for an extra kick. Here’s how to make the perfect filling:

When it comes to serving and pairing the brie cheesecake with raspberry sauce, there are a plethora of options to choose from. This decadent dessert pairs perfectly with a variety of beverages, including fruity wines such as riesling or pinot noir, as well as champagne or sparkling water for those who prefer a non-alcoholic option.

One way to serve this delightful dessert is to pair it with sliced or whole fresh raspberries and a dollop of whipped cream. The fruit’s sweet tart flavors perfectly balance out the richness of the cheesecake, while the whipped cream adds a smooth and creamy finish.

For those looking for something more indulgent, try serving a slice with a drizzle of dark chocolate sauce or caramel sauce and top with chopped toasted almonds for extra crunch. You can also dust some powdered sugar on top to add an elegant touch.

Another creative way to enjoy this dessert is by using it as a spread with crackers or crostini. It’s like baked brie but in cake form! Simply spread a spoonful on each crispy bite and top with some fresh arugula for an extra pop of color and flavor.

Make-Ahead, Storing and Reheating

Ah, now we come to the always important topic of make-ahead, storing and reheating. Who wants to spend all that time creating a delicious Brie Cheesecake with Raspberry Sauce, only to not be able to serve it later on? Fear not, dear reader, as I have some tips to help you store your masterpiece.

Firstly, can you make this cheesecake ahead of time? You sure can! This is the perfect dessert to make the day before a dinner party or gathering. Simply let it cool completely on your kitchen counter and then cover it up in foil or plastic wrap. Refrigerate for up to two days. Before serving, if any condensation appears, simply blot it out with paper towels.

Storing this Brie Cheesecake with Raspberry Sauce is pretty simple as well. Keeping it covered in foil or plastic wrap will do just fine for up to five days in your refrigerator. Just remember not to freeze the cheesecake because that would affect both the texture and flavor.

Now onto reheating this delicious treat! Can it be reheated? Yes, indeed! But gently does it. To warm up individual portions, microwave each one for roughly 20 seconds until slightly warmed through (overheating may cause loss of flavor and texture). As an alternative method, one could preheat oven at 300°F (150°C), place whole cheesecake gently into oven for 10-15 minutes until slightly warmed up (again, overheating should be avoided).

The joy of this dessert is that there is just enough sweetness from the raspberry sauce to offset the richness of the Brie and cream cheese filling. Just make sure you follow these guidelines when storing and reheating to get that perfect flavor every time.

Now that you’re ready to bake your perfect Brie Cheesecake with Raspberry Sauce, let me share with you some tips on how to ensure your recipe turns out absolutely delicious.

1. Use room temperature ingredients

Make sure all of your ingredients are at room temperature before mixing. This will help the ingredients mix together properly and prevent lumps from forming in the batter.

2. Don’t overmix the batter

When mixing the batter, be careful not to overmix. Overmixing can cause the cheesecake to become dense and heavy.

3. Use fresh ingredients

Be sure to use fresh ingredients, especially when making the raspberry sauce. Frozen or old raspberries can affect the quality of the sauce and make it less flavorful.

4. Experiment with different cheeses

While Brie cheese is a classic choice for this recipe, don’t be afraid to experiment with other types of cheese such as goat cheese or cream cheese. You may just discover a new favorite flavor combination!

5. Let it cool completely

Once your cheesecake is done baking, be sure to let it cool completely before slicing into it. This will prevent it from crumbling and falling apart.

6. Serve with contrasting flavors

When serving, consider pairing your Brie Cheesecake with Raspberry Sauce with contrasting flavors such as sliced apples, chopped toasted almonds, or drizzled balsamic vinegar. These flavors will enhance the overall taste and balance out any sweetness in the dish.

By following these tips, you’re guaranteed to achieve perfect results every time you bake this delicious dessert.


Before we wrap up this article, let me answer some frequently asked questions regarding this brie cheesecake with raspberry sauce recipe. I know that sometimes, even the most detailed recipes can still leave you wondering about a thing or two. With that said, I’ve compiled some questions and answers that I believe will help you achieve the best results with this recipe. So, let’s dive into some of them below!

Why do you put sour cream in cheesecake?

Incorporating sour cream into a classic cheesecake recipe can elevate its creaminess and introduce a tangy twist to its taste. It works hand in hand with cream cheese to create a dense and velvety texture while balancing out the dominant flavors of the dessert. A cheesecake with sour cream in it offers another depth of richness and a moist finish that’ll leave you craving for more. As a baker, I highly recommend trying this combination in your next dessert creation.

What is raspberry cheesecake made of?

To add a burst of fruity flavor to your cheesecake, start by creating a raspberry purée. Simply blend fresh raspberries with sugar and strain out the seeds. After making a simple graham cracker crust and cream cheese filling, drop dollops of the raspberry purée on top and swirl it around with a toothpick or wooden skewer. Pop the cheesecake in the oven for about an hour and let it chill for at least six hours to achieve the perfect consistency.

What condiments go with brie cheese?

In this recipe, we will be exploring different flavor combinations for toast toppings using a variety of nuts, fruits, herbs, and condiments. Each topping is unique in its own way and can be enjoyed for a quick breakfast or snack. Get ready to indulge your taste buds with these mouth-watering options: honey with chopped toasted walnuts and dried cranberries mixed with fresh thyme, cherry preserves with balsamic vinegar and cracked black pepper mixed with chopped toasted pecans, sliced strawberries with toasted and sliced almonds mixed with honey and chopped rosemary, and fruit preserves with toasted and chopped pecans and golden raisins. Each combination is sure to add a sweet, savory, and nutty flavor to your toast.

Bottom Line

Now that you’ve learned how to make a mouth-watering brie cheesecake with raspberry sauce, it’s time to take action and get baking! Don’t let the thought of making a cheesecake intimidate you. With the right ingredients and following the recipe closely, anyone can create a delicious dessert that will impress their guests.
