Get ready to conquer dessert with this Baklava Cheesecake that’s like nothing you’ve ever tasted before! Here’s the lineup of goodies you’ll need to whip it up:


  • 12 sheets of phyllo dough
  • 12 tablespoons of butter (yep, that’s a whole lotta butter!), divided and melted
  • 2 cups of pistachios (green goodness!)
  • 2 cups of walnuts (nutty excellence!)
  • A pinch of salt (just a hint!)
  • 3 cups of cream cheese (soft and creamy)
  • 1/2 cup of honey (sweet, sweet nectar)
  • 3 large eggs (big and bold)
  • 2 teaspoons of vanilla (oh-so-delicious flavor)
  • 1 teaspoon of lemon juice (a zesty zing!)
  • 1 cup of honey (yes, more honey!)
  • 1/2 cup of water (simple and pure)
  • 1 teaspoon of orange blossom water (a hint of floral goodness)
  • 1/4 cup of chopped pistachios (extra crunch!)
  • 1/2 cup of chopped walnuts (more nutty goodness!)
  • Zest and juice of 2 lemons (zesty and tangy)


Step-by-Step Fun:

  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Get that oven nice and cozy!
  2. Take a deep breath and get your phyllo dough ready. Layer 6 sheets in a baking dish, brushing each sheet with melted butter. Be gentle, it’s like building a delicate pastry tower!
  3. Grab those pistachios and walnuts, give them a good whizz in a food processor with a pinch of salt until they’re finely chopped. Spread half of this nutty mix over the phyllo layers in your baking dish.
  4. In a mixing bowl, blend together the cream cheese, 1/2 cup honey, eggs, vanilla, and lemon juice until it’s all smooth and creamy. Pour this heavenly mix over your nutty layer in the baking dish.
  5. Layer the remaining 6 sheets of phyllo dough on top, brushing each sheet with more melted butter as you go.
  6. It’s nut time again! Sprinkle the remaining nutty mix over the top of your phyllo tower.
  7. Pop your creation into the preheated oven and let it bake for about 50-60 minutes until it’s all golden and gorgeous. Keep an eye on it, you want that perfect baklava cheesecake goodness!
  8. While your baklava cheesecake masterpiece is baking, let’s make the syrupy magic. Mix together 1 cup of honey, 1/2 cup of water, orange blossom water, and the zest and juice of those 2 lemons in a saucepan. Bring it to a gentle boil and let it simmer for 10-15 minutes until it’s syrupy perfection.
  9. Once your baklava cheesecake is out of the oven and looking irresistible, pour that syrupy goodness all over it while it’s still warm. Let it soak in all that sweet, tangy flavor.
  10. Sprinkle the chopped pistachios and walnuts over the top for that extra oomph!
  11. Allow it to cool down for a bit before you dig in. Patience is key, but trust us, it’ll be worth the wait!

Final Word:

Congratulations! You’ve just created a baklava cheesecake masterpiece that’ll have everyone begging for more. Dive in and savor every delicious bite!
