Topping cheesecake with shimmering fruit is nothing new, but we spun this one in two fresh directions: We swapped out the expected cherries for ruby-red rhubarb-raspberry gelee, and we baked the whole thing in a 9-by-13-inch pan -- perfect for serving a crowd. It begins with a traditional press-in graham-cracker crust; the layer of creamy filling bakes through quickly and evenly without the usual requisite water bath.
This recipe comes to us from Ellen Clarke, one of our merchandising product managers. She got the recipe from her grandmother, Mary Morrisroe. You can replace the sugar with honey if desired. The bread is delicious served with butter and jam.
