CHEESECAKE “BAKLAVA”

Preparation time: 40 min

For 16 portions

INGREDIENTS:

1500 gr spread cheese

225 gr flour

450 gr sugar

4 eggs

2 egg yolks

400 gr milk

1 (16 ounce) package phyllo dough

500 gr walnuts

250  gr sugar

1 tsp of cinnamon powder

350 gr butter, melted

400 gr honey

HOW TO:

With the help of the mixer, beat the spread cheese with the sugar very well. Then, add the eggs one by one until the mix becomes fluffy.

Add the flour and then the milk.

Take your baking pan (30X40cm) and butter the bottom with a brush. Divide your phyllo dough as you will use half of them at the bottom and half on the top. Start spreading the dough one over the other brushing them with the melted butter (otherwise they will stuck on each other).

In a multi blender, grind the walnuts with the 250 gr of sugar and the cinnamon. Sprinkle half of them over the dough.

Pour the cheese cream and sprinkle with the rest of the walnuts. Then continue to lay the rest of the dough (don’t forget to butter in between).

Bake the cheesecake into a preheated oven in 180oC for 70-80 minutes.

When ready, take it out of the oven and pour over the honey which you have just heated up.

Let it to cool down and cut into pieces.

Extra tip: For extra sweetness why don’t decorate the plate with fresh strawberries?
