Apricot Crumble Cheesecake
Apricot crumble cheesecake is a highly flavored cheesecake with a delicious biscuit crust, creamy cheese, and apricot filling, topped with a crunchy layer of walnut crumble.
It’s a great summer cake. It’s made in a few easy steps and with simple ingredients, but has unforgettable flavors.
Apricots are great for desserts. They soften just enough to leave a delicate and appropriately strong flavor and I love using them.
The combination with the cheese is heavenly, and the nutty crumble makes the cake stand out from the mundane. Let’s get started!
Cheesecake with Apricots and Crumble
- 250 g biscuits
- 120 g butter
- 600 g cream cheese
- 3 large eggs

- 1 pinch of salt
- 500 g apricots
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 50 g flour

- Prepare a 25-35cm (9-12 inch) Teflon tray. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius (356 Fahrenheit).
- Put the biscuits in the food processor and grind them finely.
- Melt the butter over low heat, add it to the biscuits, and homogenize.
- Put the biscuits in the pan, pressing it well onto the bottom and around the edge.
- Bake in the oven for 10 minutes, then set aside and move on to the filling.

- Finally add the salt, vanilla essence, and lemon juice, mixing gently. Set aside.
- Cut the apricots into small pieces and sprinkle with a little lemon juice to prevent them from oxidizing.
- Mix the flour with the nuts, butter, and sugar until you get a sandy dough. Refrigerate for half an hour.
- Put the cream cheese over the biscuit base. Then sprinkle on the apricot pieces and press them down gently.
- Sprinkle the crumble over the top.
- Put the cake in the oven for no more than an hour.
- The cheesecake should be slightly golden on top.
- Leave in the oven to cool for 2 hours, then refrigerate for at least 6 hours, or overnight.
