Reserve 10-12 whole raspberries. Puree remainder. Measure 2/3
cup raspberry puree for cheesecake. Strain remainder in a sieve.
(Note: I think I might strain the whole batch to keep the seed
bits from disrupting the creaminess of the cheesecake.) Reserve.

For filling, beat cream cheese, sugar, eggs, sour cream, Grand
Marnier and lemon juice until very smooth and fluffy. Add the 2/3
cup raspberry puree. Blend well. Pour into prepared crust. Bake
