Change it up: Substitute 3/4 cup strained jam for the apricot mixture -- we like blueberry.

I thought this was really good and nice to make for a crowd. My boss has an apricot tree and gave me some, and since she loves cheesecake, I knew I had to make this. Everyone at work loved it and it looks very pretty without a lot of effort. Nice recipe! I am sure you could substitute many other fruits or just use good perseveres and it would work out great, haven't tried that yet but I probably will with raspberry which is my favorite fruit.
This was so delicious! I made it for a bachelorette party dinner and thought it would make 16 or so squares from an 8 x 8 pan, but it made quite a few more in the 9 x 13 pan! The leftovers froze well. I made it easy on myself and used apricot jam on top. Pretty, and so tasty. My only thought is that the crust was a little thick for the crust-to-topping ratio -- in my opinion.
I have made this and everyone really enjoyed it. I plan to substitute strawberries next time I try it.
I'm surprised by no reviews yet, because it's a great recipe. My adaptations were to substitute plums for the apricots, lowfat cream cheese, greek yogurt for sour cream, and 3 whites instead of 2 whole eggs. I worried the water content of my plums might be higher than apricots as it didn't get very thick. I cooked it a few extra minutes and didn't add the water or lemon. Plums are tangy enough w/o lemon. It turned out beautiful and so delicious!
