This recipe is great, not just for Thanksgiving, but really for any day or special occasion. You can change. up the type of jam you use to suite your taste or the season. I selected blackberry pomegranate as the flavors remind me of fall and I love these two unique flavors.

This year, like others, I am so thankful for my family, our health, and for the love that holds us together and makes us stronger,

I’m also so thankful that I love to bake and that I can share my sweets with family, friends, co-workers and you! Baking makes me happy and even happier when someone enjoys a bite or two of some wonderful sweet concoction that I have made!

These bars start by making an easy crust from crushed gingersnap cookies, butter, and sugar.

The cheesecake filling includes rich cream cheese, sweetened condensed milk, gelatin, and fresh lemon juice.

It’s topped off with sweet blackberry pomegranate jam, swirled into the filling, and sprinkled with lemon zest. Then pop it in your fridge to let it set and voila, your dessert will be ready!

And the outcome is purely irresistible! The gingersnap crust gives it a unique twist of warm flavors, the filling is smooth and tangy, and the topping is vibrant and sweet. The whole thing is quite beautiful!
