Greek Yogurt Cheesecake with Ouzo-Poached Figs

September/October 2008

Your rating: None Average: 4.3 (68 votes)

This tangy yogurt cheesecake is topped with ouzo-poached figs inspired by sikomaida, a traditional delicacy from Corfu made with dried figs macerated and kneaded with ouzo and pepper, which are formed into disks and dried in chestnut leaves. It's also delicious with seasonal fruits, fresh or dried and poached, or with whole preserves.



READER'S COMMENT:
"This was so wonderfully rich, just like a full fat cheesecake. I didn't do the poached figs but the cake is flavorful enough on its own or with a drizzle of caramel sauce. "

This was so wonderfully rich, just like a full fat cheesecake. I didn't do the poached figs but the cake is flavorful enough on its own or with a drizzle of caramel sauce.
