Holiday - Sugar Plum Cheesecake Bars

Cookie Crust:
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup confectioner’s sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, chilled and cut into small pieces
1 tsp ice water
Cheesecake Filling:
16 ounces (2 packages) cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
2 eggs
1 cup Stonewall Kitchen Holiday Jam or Sugar Plum Jam

Preheat oven to 350°. Grease a 9x13-inch pan.

Place flour, sugar and salt in food processor and pulse. Add butter and process until the dough begins to form a ball, adding ice water if necessary. Press dough evenly over the bottom of the prepared pan. Bake until crust is lightly golden, about 20 minutes. Let cool for 30 minutes.

While cooling, prepare filling. Mix softened cream cheese, sugar and vanilla until well blended. Add eggs and mix just until eggs are incorporated.

After crust cools for 30 minutes, pour cheesecake filling evenly over the crust. Spoon either the Holiday Jam or Sugar Plum Jam randomly on top of filling and then swirl to combine. Bake at 350° for approximately 35-45 minutes or until center is set. Allow to cool in pan. Cut into squares.
