I love to eat cheesecakes but never attempt to make one myself. A couple of years ago when I was visiting my sister, she had made a black berry cheesecake. It is simply divide with it's creamy texture that blended perfectly with black berries.
Now we are harvesting our raspberries & this year we have harvested more than 4 kilogram . Unbelievable! So I have decided to make my first cheesecake using raspberries with something special to remind us of summer. Why not adding a little Geranium essence. And to give it a romantic twist , I have used my favourite Biscuit Roses De Reims instead of the usual graham biscuits for the base of the cake. Unfortunately I have added too much of these pink base! Anyway it turned out to be a very girly cheesecake after all.

"Edward's love for me," said Lucy, "has been pretty well put to the rest, by our long, very long absence since we were first engaged, and it has stood the trial so well, that I should be unpardonable to doubt it now. I can safely say that he has never gave me one moment's alarm on that account from the first."
Elinor hardly knew whether to smile or sigh at this assertion.
