For the Crust:

For the Cheesecake:

For the Cherry:

  • ⅓ - ½ cup cherry jam or preserves


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and line a 9x13 baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Cut the butter into evenly sized pieces and place in a saucepan over medium-high heat.
  • Stir frequently and keep a close eye on the butter as it gets foamy. As soon as you smell the rich and nutty scent, remove the saucepan from the heat and set aside.
  • Combine the cream cheese and sugar for the cheesecake portion in a bowl and beat on medium speed until smooth. Add in the egg and vanilla, mixing until incorporated. Set aside.
  • Now that the butter has cooled slightly, transfer it to a large heatproof bowl. Add the brown sugar and whisk until fully incorporated, then whisk in the eggs, vanilla, salt, cardamom and flour.
  • Set about ¼ of the blondie base mixture aside and press the remaining ¾ of the mixture into an even layer in the prepared baking dish.
  • Spread the cheesecake layer on top and then drop small dollops of the cherry jam on top of the cheesecake.
  • Crumble the remaining blondie mixture and drop in dollops on top of the cherry cheesecake mixture.
  • Bake for 50-60 minutes or until the set. A toothpick inserted in the center will come out clean.
  • Let cool to room temperature before refrigerating for a few hours. Slice into 16 squares.


Refrigeration is optional, but the blondies stay together better once the mixture has chilled and it is easier to cut.
