Swirl Cheesecake


This will sound weird but my brother doesn't like desserts which is why I felt pretty good when he told me that he only likes this tiramisu and this swirl cheesecake, I really love it more than any other dessert but the thing that makes it really special is the jam, because it's homemade and besides the texture of the cheesecake is really smooth with a crunchy crust.

- 800 gr. of softened cream cheese
- 1 c. of sugar
- 3 tablespoons of flour
- 1 c. of sour cream
- 4 eggs
- 1 tablespoon of vanilla
- 1 c. of apricot jam

1. Make the crust by combining 1 c. of crushed nilla wafers, 6 tablespoons of melted butter, 2 tablespoons of sugar and a pinch of cinnamon. Bake at 350°F until slightly brown.


2. Make the cheesecake by beating cream cheese with sugar, vanilla and flour. Add eggs one at a time and sour cream, pour mixture on top of crust. Drop spoonfuls of apricot jam and mix a little bit with the help of a toothpick.


3. Put your pan in another pan with hot water and bake at 350°F for about 50 minutes or until a toothpick comes almost clean. Let it cool completely and refrigerate for at least 8 hours.

 

Decorate with fresh fruit




Mouthwatering slice
