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.
if you don't have rosewater, you can use vanilla extract, although nothing compares with the aroma of the roses.
Filling very sweet and should have only used half the cinnamon. The kids weren't that keen on it. Method doesn't state how thick the pastry should be so i rolled mine out to about 5mm which worked OK. It's an interesting way to make the base. As i didn't have a blender to hand I combined the filling using high on my food mixer which is not as intense as a blender but after a few mins seemed to get the result the recipe wanted. I don't think i will try this recipe again. - 03 Feb 2017
