Love cheesecake but looking for a simple way to dress it up? Just add jam! Our classic cheesecake recipe gets all tarted up by swirling a quarter cup of jam on top creating a beautiful marbled effect. Our jam cheesecake uses the traditional graham cracker cookie crust, but feel free to use our chocolate cookie crust from our brownie cheesecake. If you feel like sticking with an old standby, check out our classic cheesecake recipe. Have fun swirling your way to an easy dessert!

Ingredients

Jam Cheesecake

  • ¼ cup (½ stick, 4 tbsp) melted butter
  • 1 cup crushed graham crackers
  • ⅔ cup + 1½ tablespoons granulated sugar, divided
  • ⅛ teaspoon salt
  • 16 ounces (2 large packages) cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs
  • ¼ cup jam (we used strawberry)

Topping

  • Fresh berries (optional)

Instructions

Make the crust

Make an aluminum foil sling by taking two pieces of foil and placing them perpendicular to each other in a Suvie pan. Ensure the foil extends beyond the two long sides of the pan. It’s ok to have the corners of the pan exposed. Evenly coat aluminum foil and any exposed pan with cooking spray.

Microwave butter in a microwave-safe container until melted (approx 30 seconds). Stir in sugar, salt, and graham cracker crumbs.

Press the graham cracker mixture into the bottom of the pan until it forms a flat, compact layer, using the bottom of a measuring cup works well.

06.14.19-017

Broil crust for 5-7 minutes in your Suvie, rotating pan halfway through cooking time. Make sure to keep an eye on it to avoid burning. Remove when golden brown and fragrant.

Coffee Pairing

We recommend pairing this recipe with some freshly brewed Sumatran coffee. Coffee from this part of the world tend to be spicy, herbal, and smooth, this will balance out the sharper notes of the cheesecake and act as a perfect counterpoint to the fruity jam.
