I used blueberry preserves instead of the raspberry jam, but any preserve would do nicely, I also used grape juice for the oj. I couldn't find 'individual' cheesecake, so I froze a slice from my own Recipe #244193. I realize this sounds almost like an entirely different recipe, but it's just really a matter of the different flavor of jam. This recipe has few ingredients, and is very easy to make. The presentation as well as the flavors are simply wonderful. Thank you bk, for sharing this delicious recipe.
My DD requested these for her birthday dinner. They were great, but I really, really, really need to practice on working with phyllo pastry. I didn't have raspberry jam, so I subbed a nice mellow Peach Jam and it was wonderful. Thanks for the great recipe.
