White Chocolate - Raspberry Cheesecake Bars

I found this recipe on the Kraft Foods website and it's definitely a keeper.  Planning a special dinner?  This is your dessert.

12 Oreo Cookies, finely crushed (about 1 cup)
2 Tbsp butter, melted
3 squares Baker's White Chocolate, divided
2 pkgs (8 oz each) Philadelphia Cream Cheese, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1tsp vanilla
2 eggs
1/4 cup red raspberry preserves

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Crush Oreo cookies in a Ziploc bag.  Mix cookie crumbs and butter; press onto bottom of Springform pan. Melt 2 chocolate squares as directed on package.

Beat cream cheese, sugar and vanilla in large bowl with mixer until well blended.  Add melted chocolate; mix well.  Add eggs, one at a time, mixing on low speed after each just until blended.  Pour over crust.

Bake 25 - 28 minutes, or until center is almost set.  Cool 5 minutes; spread with preserves. Melt remaining chocolate square; drizzle over cheesecake.  Cook cheesecake completely.  Refrigerate 4 hours.
