How to Make BLACKBERRY CHEESECAKE BARS

Step-by-Step

  1. Let the cookie dough stand at room temperature for 5 minutes to soften. Press onto the bottom and 1" up the sides of a greased 13x9" baking dish. Bake in a preheated 375-degree oven for 12-15 minutes or until golden brown. Cool.
  2. In a large bowl, beat ricotta, mascarpone and sugar until blended. Add eggs; beat on low speed just until combined. Stir in vanilla, lemon peel, citrus juices and, if desired, amaretto. Pour into crust.
  3. Bake 20-25 minutes or until center is almost set. Cool 1 hour.
  4. Place spreadable fruit in a small microwave-safe bowl; microwave on high for 30-45 seconds or until melted. Spread over cheesecake; top with blackberries. Refrigerate until serving.
