High Country Baking:Raspberry Cheesecake Torte

"Very good… Everyone loved" are some of the notes I've scribbled on this recipe over the years.

It's a shell of soft vanilla cake that embraces tiers of cheesecake, raspberry preserves and an almond streusel.

The layers of flavor and texture are beautifully complementary, and the overall impression is luscious and complex.

It's festive enough to accompany celebration meals and light enough to serve any time of day so consider it for an Easter brunch or a dinner party; it's always a hit.

The only way you can ruin this beauty is to overbake it, so watch carefully.
