Let's Make It
Heat oven to 325ºF.
Line 13x9-inch pan with foil, with ends of foil extending over sides. Combine graham crumbs, 2 Tbsp. sugar and butter; press onto bottom of prepared pan. Bake 10 min.
Reserve 1/2 cup raspberries and 1 tsp. lemon zest for later use.
Beat cream cheese, lemon juice, remaining zest and remaining sugar in large bowl with mixer until blended. Add eggs, 1 at a time, mixing on low speed after each just until blended. Gently stir in remaining raspberries; pour over crust.
Bake 35 to 40 min. or until center is almost set. Cool completely.
Refrigerate 4 hours. Top with reserved raspberries and lemon zest. Use foil handles to remove cheesecake from pan before cutting into bars.
Serve these creamy cheesecake bars topped with an easy-to-make fresh raspberry sauce. While cheesecake is chilling, cook additional 6 oz. raspberries and 2 Tbsp. sugar in saucepan on low heat 6 min. or until mixture comes to boil, stirring occasionally while mashing raspberries with back of spoon. Pour through fine-mesh strainer; press to remove all juices. Discard strained solids. Refrigerate sauce until ready to drizzle over the cut bars.
Prepare as directed with PHILADELPHIA Neufchatel Cheese.
