White chocolate and apricot cheesecake

One of the best thing about the summer season is the choice of fresh fruit , now we can piock from apricots , peaches , cherries and many more . We can use this fruits for pies , jam , sorbet or just by itself .  I thought that apricot could go well with white chocolate , so i  decided to make a cheesecake  and try this combination.  To make this dessert better  i used some of my father’s home-made apricot jam to give a marbled effect and i used diced fresh apricot  to add some texture to the cheesecake . If you do not like apricot you can use other fruit such as raspberries , peaches,  blueberries or any of your favourites fruit  .

Bon appetit

  1. Beautiful. I think apricots are a little underappreciated because they’re hard to get at exactly the right peak of freshness without being mealy or dull-flavored. This sounds marvelous!
