Apricot Compote Cheesecake Bars

Thank you Martha Stewart. These are simply divine.

For the delicious recipe - go here.
Thought I'd share some of the pictures I took while I made the cheesecake. I wish you could smell the sweet apricot aroma.

First you cook the apricots. The recipe says four - but I threw in one more. You cook it with sugar and a bit of salt.

It's ready when it looks like this.

Then you puree it with a lemon juice and water (I doubled the lemon juice) in a food processor.

This is the crust after it's been baked.

 Here's the cheesecake mix waiting for the apricot puree.

You just drop spoonfuls randomly. It's really fun.

 Then take a skewer and gently make your own designs. My girls thought these looked like dancing stars.

Voila - all done and baked... cool and then let it sit in your fridge for two hours. 

Dang I love apricots.

ps. I only took one bite. Just one. I am so proud of my discipline. I did freeze some for when I'm of my no sugar/carbs stint.

All those swirls on top are so pretty. This must be one delicious dessert. I have a sweet treat linky party going on at my blog till Monday and I'd love it if you'd come by and link your bars up.
