Perfect Baklava Cheesecake Recipe

You’ll Need
1 and 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
24 oz cream cheese, room temperature
1 cup granulated sugar
4 eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup sour cream
1 cup chopped baklava
1/4 cup honey
1 tsp ground cinnamon

Instructions:

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F and grease a 9-inch springform pan.
In a small mixing bowl, combine the graham cracker crumbs, 1/4 cup sugar, and melted butter. Press the mixture into the bottom of the prepared pan.
In a large mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese and 1 cup sugar until smooth.
Add in the eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each addition. Stir in the vanilla extract and sour cream.
Fold in the chopped baklava.
Pour the mixture into the crust and smooth out the top.
In a small saucepan, heat the honey and cinnamon over low heat until it is warmed through.
Drizzle the honey mixture over the cheesecake.
Bake the cheesecake for 60-70 minutes, or until the edges are set and the center is still slightly jiggly.
Turn off the heat and let the cheesecake cool in the oven for 1 hour.
Refrigerate the cheesecake for at least 4 hours before serving.
