    I made this with plums + apples the 1st time &, as another reviewer pointed out,the apples did not fully cook so the 2nd time making it I used all plums...it was fantastic....I have been asked for the recipe & am making it as dessert for a Christmas dinner party this weekend.

    I made the dessert but found the fruit on top did not cook and tasted awful while the rest of the dessert tasted great. Now I top it with frozen blueberries and its really delicious. Lately I have made it into tarts with a dollop of mincemeat at the bottom and use this recipe instead of regular mince tarts - succulent!

    Great recipe that's easy on the cheese and adaptable. I think I made it different every time I've baked this cheesecake, ie. graham/vanilla wafer crust or pear topping. You can drop the amount of sugar as well since maple syrup itself is sweet.
