Gold Medal Flour

Ingredients

  • 2 cups Gold Medal™ all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup margarine, softened
  • 1/3 cup light corn syrup
  • 2 1/2 packages (8 ounces each) reduced-fat cream cheese (Neufchâtel) , softened
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1 cup light corn syrup
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 3/4 cup raspberry or strawberry jam
  • Powdered sugar, if desired

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 375°F. Grease bottom and sides of rectangular pan, 13x9x2 inches.
  • 2
    Beat flour, granulated sugar, salt, margarine, 1/3 cup corn syrup and 1/2 package cream cheese with electric mixer on medium speed until dough forms. Press evenly in pan.
  • 3
    Beat remaining 2 packages cream cheese in medium bowl until smooth. Beat in eggs and egg whites until well blended. Beat in 1 cup corn syrup and the vanilla until smooth. Pour over dough.
  • 4
    Bake 35 to 40 minutes or until edges are light golden brown and filling is set (filling may appear puffy). Stir jam; spread over hot bars. Cool 30 minutes. Refrigerate at least 3 hours until chilled.
  • 5
    For 36 bars, cut into 6 rows by 6 rows. Sprinkle with powdered sugar just before serving. Refrigerate any remaining bars.

  • Rise to the occasion! If using self-rising flour, there is no need to add salt.
  • To ensure recipe success, do not use vegetable oil spreads.
  • Be a cut above the rest! Use a wet knife to cut cheesecake bars, wiping it clean after each cut.
