Cheesecake with Apricot Sauce | cheesecake recipes

1/2 cup graham cracker crumbs
2 pounds cream cheese, softened
4 eggs
1 3/4 cups granulated sugar
Juice and grated rind of 1 lemon
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Strawberries, blueberries or other fruit or berries
Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Butter the inside of an 8−inch wide soufflé dish and sprinkle with
graham cracker crumbs until coated. (Do not use a springform pan.) Shake out the excess crumbs. Set
Place cream cheese, eggs, sugar, lemon juice and rind and vanilla extract in a bowl. Start beating with
electric beater at low speed and, as the ingredients blend, increase the speed to high. Continue beating
until thoroughly blended and smooth. Scrape batter into prepared dish and shake gently to level the
mixture. Set the dish inside a slightly wider pan and fill larger pan with boiling water to a depth of
about 1/2 inch. Do not let the edge of the soufflé dish touch the rim of the larger pan. Place in oven and
bake 1 1/2 hours.
Turn off oven heat and let cake sit in oven 20 minutes longer. Lift soufflé dish out of water and place
on a rack. Let dish stand until cake reaches room temperature. Invert a plate over the cake and
carefully turn both upside down to unmold the cake. Invert a cake plate over the bottom of the cake
and carefully turn this upside down so that the cake comes out right side up. Garnish with berries or
fruit and spoon Apricot Sauce over all.

1 (10 ounce) jar apricot jam
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup water
1 tablespoon rum, Cognac or kirsch
Combine jam, sugar and water in a small saucepan and stir over low heat until blended and smooth.
Push the sauce through a small sieve with a spoon. Let cool and stir in the rum, Cognac or kirsch.
Makes 1 1/2 cups.
