Other desserts you will love:

The other great thing about raspberry swirl cheesecake? It’s the best make ahead type of dessert. Since cheesecake is better when served cold, or at least refrigerated, you can actually make it a couple of days before you need to serve it. However, even just 2 hours of refrigeration are enough if you are in a rush (or you know, if you have a ton of cravings).

How to make the best raspberry cheesecake bars

  • Start with a graham cracker crust: A graham cracker crust is the perfect neutral, crunchy base and balances the richness, sweetness and tanginess of these raspberry cheesecake bars.
  • Whip up the cream cheese until creamy but don’t over mix: When making a cheesecake you want to beat all the ingredients together until they are creamy and incorporated however don’t go overboard when mixing. You don’t want to incorporate too much air.

How to tell if a cheesecake is done baking?

One of the most important things about cheesecake is that you don’t want to overbake it! Take it out of the oven when it’s lightly golden on the edges but still wobbly in the middle.

It may seem undercooked but with the refrigeration time it will set and firm up. If you bake it for too long you risk your cheesecake cracking and a burnt bottom.

1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

2. Grease a baking pan and set aside.

3. In a bowl combine the graham crackers, sugar, cinnamon and melted butter. Let it rest for around 2 minutes so the crackers can soak up the butter.

4. Transfer to the prepared baking pan and press firmly.

5. Take to the oven and bake for 8 minutes.

6. Remove from the oven and let it cool.

7. In the meantime prepare the filling. In a bowl beat cream cheese and sugar together. Add eggs, heavy cream, vanilla and lemon juice and zest. Beat until everything is just incorporated.

8. Pour the filling into the baked crust.

9. Distribute the jam in dollops over the fillings and with the help of a knife, swirl it.

10. Take it to the oven and bake it for 45 minutes or until set in the borders but jiggly in the middle.

Refrigerate for at least 2 hours before serving.
