How to Make Baklava Cheesecake?

    First, grease the sides of a 22 cm wide springform cake tin.

    Brush each phyllo pastry with melted butter, sprinkle with granulated sugar, and then place it in the greased cake tin overflowing from the sides and sprinkle with pistachios.

    Repeat the same process to create 16 layers in this way. Bake in the preheated oven at 200 degrees for only 5-6 minutes until it turns color and take it out of the oven and leave to cool.

    Put the cheeses and granulated sugar in a mixing bowl and mix them with the help of a mixer. Then add the milk, egg and vanilla and mix again.

    Finally, add the flour and pistachios, mix and pour the cheesecake mixture over the baklava base. Blow the air out of the cheesecake by knocking the mold on the counter a few times.

    After putting a heat-resistant bowl and water in the preheated oven at 160 degrees, take the cheesecake on the same shelf and bake it for 50-60 minutes.

    After turning off the oven, open the door and let the cheesecake cool slowly for 30 minutes. Then take it out of the oven and when it comes to room temperature, cool it in the refrigerator for at least 5-6 hours.

    To decorate, mix 4-5 phyllo dough with 1-2 tablespoons of butter and granulated sugar, fry in the oven and when it cools down, break it up with your hands and sprinkle it on the chesecake.

    Finally, garnish with pistachios and serve.
