So, here's a question that makes my head spin.
"What's your favorite dessert of all time?"
I usually follow this up with an uncomfortable pause, an "umm..." or two and then I get red in the face because dessert is my LIFE and I should have a solid answer for this question.
"I'm still deciding."
I know. Bor-ing. I'm just not ready to commit! But I can tell you this. Cheesecake is in my top 5, and this Baklava Cheesecake is definitely in my top 10.
I was inspired by this recipe, and decided to re-work it a little. I thought it best to incorporate Greek yogurt into the cheesecake batter (that makes sense, right?) and ground walnuts can almost always use the loving touch of a little salt. I also made an embarrassing amount of honey syrup for drenching this filo covered cake, mostly because - have you ever had dry baklava? Ugh. I don't even want to talk about it.
