Mary's Blackberry Bars Recipe

2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/4 cups sugar, divided
3/4 cup cold butter, cut up
2 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese, softened
2 large eggs
1 cup seedless blackberry preserves

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine flour and 1/2 cup sugar in large bowl. Cut butter into flour mixture with a pastry blender or fork until crumbly; press in bottom of a lightly greased 13 by 9 inch pan. Bake for 20 minutes, or until golden brown. Meanwhile, place 3/4 cup sugar and cream cheese in bowl of a heavy-duty electric stand mixer. Beat on medium speed until fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating just until blended after each addition. Remove pan from oven and spread preserves evenly over crust. Carefully pour cream cheese mixture over preserves, spreading to edge of pan. Bake for 30 minutes, or until cheesecake layer is set in center. Cool completely in pan on a wire rack (about 1 hour). Cut into 24 bars.
