Baklava Cheesecake

There are many ways to approach this dessert idea and I’ve settled on this one: phyllo pastry acting as the base followed by a nut/cinnamon mixture. The middle is your classic cream cheese filling and the top is more crumbled nuts and Greek honey. It’s not a cheap dessert but it’s a good dessert, more wholesome if you will with the use of honey rather than syrup (as is traditionally used for baklava).


For the Base

10 sheets of phyllo pastry (thawed)

approx. 2 sticks unsalted butter, melted

1 cup roasted walnuts

1 cup roasted almonds

1 tsp. ground cinnamon

1/4 tsp. salt

2 Tbsp. melted butter
