Akpik Cheesecake


From the Kitchen of Tanya Gruben

This is a recipe I’m sharing from a Newfie friend. They have akpiks there too. They call them bakeapples. This cheesecake is delicious!


  • 2 cups graham crumbs
  • ½ cup melted margarine
  • ¼ cup Sugar
  • Mix. Put in a large, oblong pan. Bake at 350° for 10 minutes. Cool.


  • 2 pkgs cream cheese
  • ½ c sugar
  • 1 litre Cool Whip
  • Mix two eight-oz packages cream cheese with ½ cup sugar until well blended. Blend in 1 litre Cool Whip. (You can even add akpiks in now if you want.) Spread over cooked crust. Top with Berry Topping.


  • 2 cups of akpiks
  • 2 tsp cornstarch
  • Place akpiks in saucepan and add a little water and sugar to taste. Boil, then stir in 1/3 cup water that has 2 tsp of corn starch added. Thicken a little; then cool.
