Yummy Treat: Raspberry Cheesecake Bars!

 

raspberrybars2

This is one of those treats that once you made it once, you will want to make it over and over again!  I usually try to bake something different every week, but since I made those raspberry bars, I’m pretty much stuck on baking them again … and again.  Consider it a warning ;)

Ingredients
For crust:
260g all-purpose flour
50 g brown sugar
224g softened butter
Pinch of kosher salt

For filling:
200g cream cheese
100g sugar
1 egg
1 egg yolk
Raspberry jam
300g fresh raspberries

Method
Heat the oven to 180 degrees C. Line a 33 x 23 x 5 cm rectangular baking pan with parchment paper so that all sides are covered.

In a medium size bowl, use an electric mixer to cream butter (for about 20sec). Add flour and brown sugar and mix on medium speed for another 90 sec until you have a solid dough. Press the dough in the baking tin. Bake for 20min. Once you take it out, let it cool for 10 minutes, don’t turn off the oven though!

Spread a layer of raspberry jam over the crust and cover with raspberries. In another bowl, beat eggs, sugar and cream cheese. Pour the mixture over the raspberries. Bake for another 30 min and let cool off. If you can stay away from it, and although I know it’s not too easy I recommend it, since the bars are the best when they stay in a fridge for a nigh (I usually bake the bars in the evening). When you take them out of the fridge, cut them in squares, dust with confectioners’ sugar and you’re good to go! Enjoy!

    This is certainly a delicious recipe. I wonder where I could get raspberry if I could find it on local grocery store. I wish I could have time and patience to bake in the near future. Thank you for sharing this nice recipe.

    Emily, I live in Europe where fresh raspberries are in the shops/market already but if you don’t find them, you can easily substitute fresh raspberries with frozen ones.

    Brandy, enjoy making them!

    1stopmom, thank you!

  5. These look fantastic! I can’t wait to make them this summer!

  6. Looks sweet and easy – two of my favorite baking terms!

    wow, these look so good. I bet you could sub the raspberry jam for just about anything. I would love to try it with my new favorite addiction…Nutella

    I’d love to make these but I’m lost on ingredients.

    How would the measurements convert to U.S? I can go online and find a conversion chart but being use to working in liquid measure (oz, cups, etc) it looks like you’ve got them in dry weight (gms).

    Raspberries (especially fresh in the springtime!) and cheesecake are two of my favorite things. I am soooo going to try this recipe. Thank you for posting it. :-)

  10. These are beautiful!
