    Heat oven to 350°F.

    Meanwhile, in medium bowl, beat cream cheese, sugar, vanilla and egg with electric mixer on medium speed until smooth and creamy. Pour evenly over baked crust.

    Spoon raspberry jam into 1-quart resealable food-storage plastic bag; seal bag. Cut 1/2 inch off small corner of bag. Pipe jam on cream cheese mixture in 4 horizontal rows. With knife, carefully swirl jam in circular motion into cream cheese mixture.

    Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until filling is set. Cool 30 minutes. Refrigerate about 1 hour or until chilled. For bars, cut into 6 rows by 4 rows. Store covered in refrigerator.

  • Softening cream cheese is easy; just microwave unwrapped cream cheese on microwavable plate uncovered on High 10 to 15 seconds.
  • For a different swirl design, pipe jam on cream cheese in 4 horizontal rows. With knife, carefully swirl jam back and forth in straight vertical lines.
