This farmer cheesecake with apricots is one of those old Russian, classic cakes. You may have noticed that Russian pastries are often made with farmers cheese. That’s because back in the days of our grandparents, people in villages did not own refrigerators, and since it was hard to preserve milk, they ended up making farmers cheese. They’ve used it in crepes and all sorts of other pastries.

This cake is not very sweet in flavors, especially if you use fresh apricots. If you have a sweet tooth, I would suggest adding a bit more sugar into the crust and filling.

You can purchase farmer cheese in most grocery stores or prepare it on your own, see the Farmer Cheese recipe.
