Makes about 1 cup seedless raspberry glaze

I top my tried-and-true Creamy and Luscious No-Crack Cheesecake Recipe with this luscious raspberry glaze. It's super easy to make, beautiful in color, and adds that extra touch to take your dessert over the top. I like to strain it so that it's seedless.


My favorite raspberry preserves brand has always been Bon Maman. 

1 13-ounce jar Raspberry Preserves; you can use jam
2 teaspoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
Optional, 1 teaspoon lemon peel, finely minced

1. In a small saucepan, mix together the raspberry preserves with the lemon juice.

2. Heat under low heat until just warmed.

3. Strain through a fine mesh strainer into a bowl; push the preserves through the strainer with a rubber spatula. Discard the seeds. Optionally, add in the lemon peel.

4. Cool and use as a glaze or topping.

Refrigerate for a few days. Reheat under gentle heat so it becomes spreadable, again. Cool before using.
