Ingredients

For Filling:

  • 8 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 2 cup ricotta cheese, drained
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 ½ cups granulated sugar
  • 5 eggs
  • 3 medium kiwis, peeled and pureed
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tbsp fresh lime juice
  • 1 tbsp vanilla

For topping:

  • 3 medium kiwis, peeled and sliced thin
  • 1/2 cup apricot preserves

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare a 9-inch cheesecake or springform pan with 3-inch sides, lined with parchment paper.

Making the filling

  1. In a large mixer bowl, beat cream cheese, ricotta, sour cream and sugar on medium-high speed for 3 minutes.

  2. Add eggs one at a time, beating after each addition. Stir in kiwi puree, flour, lime juice and vanilla.

  3. Pour into the prepared cheesecake pan. Bake in the preheated oven for 55-65 minutes or until the top is light brown and the center has a slight jiggle to it.

  4. Cool on a rack for 2 hours. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 6 hours. Garnish with the sliced kiwis and serve.

Preparing the fruit topping

  1. In a small saucepan, bring apricot preserves to medium heat.

  2. Press through a sieve and brush on top of kiwis. This will keep the fruit looking fresh.
