Peach Schnapps Squares

Peach Schnapps Squares

3 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup light brown sugar, packed
3/4 tsp salt
1 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
2 tbsp unsalted butter, at room temperature

2 x 8 oz packages cream cheese, at room temperature
3/4 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla
4 tbsp peach schnapps
2 large eggs
3/4 cup peach jam

Preheat oven to 350 °F. Grease and line a 9 x –13-inch pan with parchment
paper so that it hangs over the sides.

In a food processor, pulse all ingredients until a crumbly texture. Press
into prepared pan and bake for 20 minutes. While crust is baking, prepare

With electric beaters, beat cream cheese until light and fluffy. Beat in
sugar, vanilla and 2 Tbsp of peach schnapps. Reduce speed to low and add
eggs, one at a time.

While crust is still hot, stir remaining 2 Tbsp of schnapps into peach jam
and spread over hot crust. Pour cheesecake mixture over jam and bake for 30
minutes, until set (but a little jiggly in center). Allow to cool to room
temperature, then chill completely before slicing.
