Cheesecake is always a good idea, but when you swirl it with berry jam… well thats just a whole new level of YUM!
OH the Crust…
One of my favorite parts of cheesecake is the crust. I am a sucker for a good graham cracker crust. There is just something so yummy about a buttery graham cracker crust.
I know you can make it with other crusts but for me I am a graham cracker girl all the way.
In my opinion a good cheesecake is rich, creamy, a little tart and a little sweet.
This one is all that and more because I used vanilla bean paste which just adds that little something extra. I just love the extra hint of vanilla in each bite making this cheesecake something special.
If you don’t have vanilla bean paste, don’t worry you can use vanilla extract & it will be AMAZING!
Jam & Cheesecake come together
As much as I love a good graham cracker crust and a rich and creamy cheesecake the real star of this dessert is the berry jam swirl. There is just something so perfect about the jam and cheesecake, they really do make just the perfect combination. Don’t believe me? Try it.
I used this Roasted Betty Jam to swirl through the cheesecake, not only making it look amazing but also DELICIOUS!
I love these bars for all your Holiday & Family get togethers… they will be a huge hit I am sure! I mean they are kinda red, white and blue making them perfect for the 4th of July… right??
If you do not want to make jam, you can use whatever your favorite one is, just heat it up for a bit to make it easier to swirl.
Preheat the oven…
