Why I Love This Recipe
Ingredients You'll Need
1 packaged chocolate pie crust (6 oz.)
2 pkgs. (3 oz. each) cream cheese, softened (see note)
1 can (14 oz) sweetened condensed milk - not evaporated milk
3 tablespoons lemon juice

Preheat oven to 350ºF. With mixer, beat cream cheese until fluffy; gradually beat in sweetened condensed milk until smooth. Add egg, lemon juice and vanilla; mix well.
Arrange raspberries on bottom of crust. Slowly pour cheese mixture over fruit. Bake 30 to 35 minutes or until center is almost set. Cool.

Top cheesecake with Chocolate Glaze; chill. Garnish as desired. Refrigerate leftovers.
