  • 1 box Pillsbury™ refrigerated pie crusts, softened as directed on box
  • 2 pkgs (250 g each) cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups sour cream (not reduced-fat or fat-free)
  • 1 tablespoon grated lemon peel (2 large)
  • 1/2 cup fresh lemon juice (2 large)
  • 1/2 cup raspberry fruit spread or seedless raspberry jam


  • 1
    Heat oven to 350° F. Remove pie crusts from pouches. On lightly floured surface, unroll and stack crusts one on top of the other. Roll to 17x12-inch rectangle. Fit crust into 15x10x1-inch pan, pressing into corners. Fold extra crust under, even with edges of pan.

    In medium bowl, beat cream cheese and sugar on medium-high speed 2 minutes or until smooth. Add sour cream, lemon peel and lemon juice; beat on low speed until blended. Pour over crust; spread evenly with spatula.

    Place 1/2 cup raspberry fruit spread in small resealable food-storage plastic bag; cut off very small bottom corner of bag. Starting at one long side of pan, squeeze bag to make about 10 crosswise rows of jam. Starting at one short side of pan, pull butter knife lengthwise about 10 times through rows of jam.

    Bake 40 to 45 minutes or until centre is set. Cool in pan on cooling rack 30 minutes. Refrigerate at least 30 minutes before serving. Store in refrigerator.

Expert Tips

  • Tip 1
    Roll lemons on the kitchen counter with the palm of your hand to release the juice before cutting into them. It will yield more juice every time!
  • Tip 2
    Raspberry fruit spread works well in this recipe and provides a brighter red colour in the cheesecake. Seedless raspberry jam or preserves will also provide good results with a darker colour.
