  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F. Spray bottom of 13x9-inch pan with cooking spray. Break up cookie dough into pieces; press evenly in bottom of pan. Bake 16 to 19 minutes or until golden brown. Cool 15 minutes.
  • 2
    In large bowl, beat cream cheese and sugar with electric mixer on medium speed until smooth, scraping side of bowl frequently. On low speed, add eggs, 1 at a time, beating just until blended. Beat in vanilla and 2 teaspoons lemon zest. In small bowl, reserve 1 cup of the filling.
  • 3
    In another small bowl, mash 2 cups raspberries with fork. Push berries through small strainer with back of spoon to make 1/2 cup raspberry puree. Stir puree, lemon juice and food color into remaining filling.
  • 4
    Spread raspberry filling evenly over cookie crust. Drop tablespoonfuls of reserved filling on raspberry filling. With knife, carefully swirl into raspberry filling layer to create marbled look.
  • 5
    Bake 25 to 30 minutes or until center is set. Cool 30 minutes on cooling rack. Refrigerate at least 3 hours, until chilled completely.
  • 6
    To serve, run sharp knife around edges of pan. Cut into 6 rows by 4 rows. Garnish each bar with raspberry and additional lemon zest. Store covered in refrigerator.

Expert Tips

  • To quickly soften cream cheese, remove from wrapper, and place on microwavable plate; microwave uncovered on High about 15 seconds or just until softened.
  • Bars are best cut when completely chilled, and wiping the blade between each slice helps ensure nice, clean edges.
