To serve, spoon some sauce on to dessert plates. Place slice of
cheesecake on sauce. Garnish with reserved berries.
If you prefer, use 1 cup graham cracker crumbs with 1/2 cup finely
chopped almonds for the crust. Use a food processor and pulse to chop
nuts to an even consistency, rather than a fine powder. Also, you
could substitute strawberries for the raspberries. To omit liqueur,
increase almond extract in the filling to 1 teaspoon and use just a
drop in the raspberry puree.
