To preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit, and line a 9 inch by 13-inch baking pan with some parchment paper, leaving a two-inch overhang on both sides of the pan. Then in a large bowl, mix the melted butter into the graham cracker crumbs until you have a consistency similar to that of wet sand. Then transfer the mixture to a baking dish and use your hands or the bottom of a measuring cup to pack the crumb crust into the baking dish. Then in a large bowl or mixer, beat the softened cream cheese, sugar, butter and eggs together, then mix in the vanilla, lemon zest, cinnamon and salt.

Once the raspberry preserves are warmed drizzle over the cheesecake to create stripes on the surface. Then take a knife and slowly drag it across the stripes of jam to create a marbled raspberry surface layer. When the desired marbling is achieved, place the baking dish in the oven and bake for approximately 20 to 22 minutes, or until the cheesecake is set. Then remove from oven and let cool completely. Take the ends of parchment paper, remove the cheesecake and cut into squares. Refrigerate at least two hours before serving.
