Easy Greek Style Baklava Cheesecake Recipe

Written by in , Comments Off on Easy Greek Style Baklava Cheesecake Recipe

Cheesecake isn’t commonly thought of as a Greek dessert, but there is a Greek cheese tart made from Myzithra cheese that is similar to cheesecake. This cheesecake baklava merges two delicious Greek desserts to make something new. It’s also very easy to put together.

Greek Baklava Cheesecake Recipe Ingredients:

  • 1 recipe Greek cheesecake (Myzithropita)
  • 1/2 recipe Greek baklava (Note that you won’t be making this recipe in full, you will only need the filling and the syrup. Explanation will be in the instructions).

How to Bake Baklava Cheesecake:

Preheat the oven to 400 Degrees Fahrenheit.

Prepare the Myzithropita according to the recipe instructions. Get the recipe to the point where you pour the batter into the baking pan

You will be cutting the Greek baklava recipe in half. Prepare the filling and sprinkle it over the cheesecake.

Place the cheesecake in the center of the oven to bake. Prepare the baklava syrup (half the amount, since you halved the recipe) while the cake is baking. Let it cool.

Remove the cheesecake from the oven after thirty minutes. Follow the recipe instructions as to how and when to remove the cake from the pan.

Pour the syrup over the cake just before serving.
