I've made this twice, the first time made it, the crust wasn't thick enough and the top cracked, didn't look pretty, but it still tasted so good, my mother in law asked me to make it for thanksgiving the next year, which came to my second time making it. The second time, the video on the recipe page was there. When I watched it, I realized that I overbeated the batter and overcooked the cheesecake the first time I made it, so when I followed the video, it actually came out picture perfect. I don't remember heating the jam, but it still came out good. I want to see if I could make this in a heart shaped pan or something other than a rectangle, if anyone has experimented using a different pan, please let me know.
