About this recipe:
This is a traditional dessert dish from Cyprus - in fact, it's my mum's recipe. The best and easiest cheesecake for beginners, it only takes only 20 minutes to make and is perfect for hot summer days.
250g puff pastry
250g ricotta cheese
150g icing sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 tablespoons rosewater
250ml double cream
100g chopped walnuts
whole walnut kernels for garnish (optional)

2 hr 50 min
Preheat the oven to 190 C / Gas 5. Place the puff pastry on baking parchment or nonstick paper.
Bake for 30 minutes in the preheated oven, until it is golden and crispy. Remove from oven and leave it to cool.
Put cheese, icing sugar, cinnamon and rosewater in the blender and blend until the mixture is fluffy. Add cream and walnuts and half of the honey. The mixture should be fluffy and airy.
Crush the cooled puff pastry into little pieces. Lay half of it on the bottom of a deep serving plate. Pour the cheese mixture over it. Top it with the rest of the puff pastry.
Refrigerate at least 2 hours to set. Before serving, pour the rest of the honey over it. Garnish with whole walnut kernels (optional). Substitution
if you don't have rosewater, you can use vanilla extract, although nothing compares with the aroma of the roses.
Thanks Katerina for the recipe. It was delicious! Valerie (England)
