2 cup / 500 ml
graham wafer crumbs
1/2 cup / 125 ml
butter, melted
4 package / 1 kg
brick-style cream cheese, softened
1 cup / 250 ml
granulated sugar
Island Gold Free Run Omega-3 shell eggs
1 tbsp / 15 ml
vanilla extract
large, ripe peaches
1 tbsp / 15 ml
lemon juice
2/3 cup / 150 ml
apricot jam


  1. For crust: combine crumbs and butter. Press evenly into bottom of 13 x 9” (33 x 23 cm) baking pan. Bake at 350°F (180°C) 10 minutes.
  2. For filling: beat cream cheese and sugar until very smooth. Add eggs and vanilla and beat just until uniformly combined (do not over-mix). Pour over crumb crust.
  3. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until slightly puffed around edges but still a little jiggly in centre. Cool to room temperature. Cover tightly and refrigerate for at least 3 hours or until set. (Cheesecake can be prepared up to this point and held in refrigerator for up to 3 days.)
  4. For topping: to peel peaches, pour boiling water over peaches in a bowl. Drain and add cold water until cool enough to handle; drain well. Slip off skins; slice peaches thinly. Toss with lemon juice. Arrange over cheesecake. Melt jam in saucepan or microwave; brush over peaches. Cut into squares to serve.


  • To make entirely ahead, or if serving over a couple of days, toss peaches with lemon juice and apricot jam and reserve separately. Spoon peaches over individual portions to serve.
  • When out of season, replace fresh peaches with 4 cups/1 L well-drained, canned sliced peaches.
