Fruit Topping Ingredients
Butter one 10-inch Springform pan. Line two sheets of parchment paper (16” x 12”) on top of the butter. The parchment paper should come above the sides of the pan. Place the lined Springform pan on a rimmed baking sheet.
Combine sugar and lemon zest in a bowl and mix well. Add to cream cheese in a mixer bowl. (Note: the best results come from using a paddle attachment on a stand mixer at low speed!) Beat and scrape down the sides of the bowl for approximately two minutes or until smooth and no lumps remain.
To make the fruit topping: In a small saucepan, melt the jelly over low heat until just melted. Combine raspberries and strawberries in a bowl and gently toss them with the melted jelly and a pinch of salt. Pour over cheesecake and serve or cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.
