Shortbread Crust:
¾ cup butter
2 cups all-purpose flour
½ cup brown sugar
½ teaspoon salt

Preheat oven to 350 F. Cut butter into pieces and combine in food processor with other ingredients. Process until mixture is blended evenly. Press into a 13 x 9 x 2 pan and bake until golden, about 20 minutes. While crust is baking, prepare topping.

Topping:
16 oz cream cheese, softened
2 large eggs
¾ cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 9-ounce jar of your favorite jam (we like Blueberry Lemon)

In a bowl whisk cream cheese until smooth and whisk in eggs, sugar, and vanilla. Evenly spread preserves over hot shortbread and pour cream-cheese mixture over it. Bake in middle of oven until slightly puffed, about 30 minutes. Cool completely in pan.
