Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 375°F. Grease bottom and sides of rectangular pan, 13x9x2 inches. Beat flour, butter, granulated sugar, 1/3 cup corn syrup and the salt in large bowl with electric mixer on low speed until dough forms. Press evenly in pan.
  • 2
    Beat cream cheese in medium bowl on medium speed until smooth. Beat in eggs until well blended. Beat in 1 cup corn syrup and the vanilla until smooth. Pour over dough.
  • 3
    Bake 35 to 40 minutes or until edges are light golden brown and filling is set (filling may appear puffy.) Stir preserves; spread over hot bars. Refrigerate at least 3 hours until chilled.

    For 64 bars, cut into 8 rows by 4 rows; cut bars diagonally in half. Sprinkle with powdered sugar just before serving. Store covered in refrigerator.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Make sure that your cream cheese is softened so that it quickly blends in with the other ingredients. Beat the batter just until it's smooth; overbeating can cause a dry cheesecake.
  • tip 2
    Fool guests by making them think you made two desserts. Spread apricot preserves over one half of the bars and raspberry preserves over the other half!
