Honey Cheesecake Pistachio Baklava

Baklava is an Ottoman Turkish recipe that originated in the Middle East; it is also popular in parts of the Mediterranean and Balkans. 

The classic baklava recipe is a sweet dessert pastry made with sheets of phyllo dough brushed with melted butter and sprinkled with crushed nuts. The baklava layers are then scored with a sharp knife and saturated with hot syrup, occasionally flavored with rose water, orange blossom water, or lemon juice. The pastry is then baked until golden and flaky. 

In some countries where phyllo sheets are made by hand, baklava is a special occasion pastry. But, where bakeries produce the pastry in volume, it is often an everyday pastry served to loved ones or guests who stop by. In my home, we have to have baklava at least once a month, and this tangy cheesecake with its traditional baklava crust is one of the ways we love to enjoy it.
