[White Spot Cheesecake.]

If you're from Vancouver, BC - you know all about White Spot.  Legendary Burgers with Triple O sauce ... zoo sticks and Pirate Packs.  But back in the day, they had the BEST cheesecake.  Light, fluffy, unbaked yumminess ... and there are TWO secrets to this amazing recipe.  One - the pastry base.  And two, the raspberry jam layer.  Mmmmm.

My mom used to make it for company, and I have meant to post it here.  Thank you, Auntie Ruth, for letting me scour through your recipes the other day and be reminded of this gem!!  It will be on our Christmas Dinner meal plan this year.

  2. "Triple O Sauce" is a misnomer. "Triple O" at White Spot means "extra", and can refer to anything. The "sauce" you're referring to is White Spot mayonnaise, which is made at the White Spot commissary.

  3. The cream cheese layer did not thicken in the double boiler. I used 33% cream cheese...Island Farms soft cream cheese in the tub. What happened? Cream cheese did not incorporate properly with the dish and eggs. Any suggestions? Thanks!
