Makes: about 8 servings

20 chocolate wafer cookies, finely crushed
1 cup Fisher® Chef’s Naturals Pecan Chips, chopped
3 tablespoons butter, melted
8 ounces white chocolate, finely chopped
1 pound cream cheese
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 large eggs, beaten
½ cup raspberry preserves
⅔ cup plus ¼ cup granulated sugar, separated

Pre-heat an oven to 350°F. In a bowl, combine the ground cookies and ½ cup of the pecans and melted butter. Using a spoon, mix well. Press the mixture into an 8″ square pan sprayed lightly with vegetable spray, then press the cookie mixture firmly into the bottom of the pan. Fill a pot with 1-2 cups of water and bring to a simmer. Place white chocolate chips in a double boiler or a microwave safe bowl (the water should not touch the bottom of the bowl). Stir the chocolate constantly while the chocolate melts and remove from stove once completely melted. Using a whisk, beat in the cream cheese and vanilla until smooth. Add eggs one at a time and ⅔ cup granulated sugar, mixing well until very smooth. Pour mixture over the cookie crust, tap the pan gently to smooth out and bake for 25-30 minutes until firm. Cool for 15 minutes. Heat the preserves gently in a bowl over hot water just until melted. Spoon over the slightly cooled cheesecake. Cool completely and refrigerate for at least 6 hours. In a saucepan, heat the remaining ¼ cup of sugar and add the remaining ½ cup of pecans. Stir over medium heat until pecans are lightly coated. Let cook a few minutes, cut into bars and sprinkle with the candied pecans and serve
