Baklava is one of my all-time favorite treats. Layers upon layers of crispy honey-soaked pastry with nuts (often pistachios or walnuts), are layered and baked to golden perfection.

The result is a decadent dessert, intensely flavored and totally irresistible! The only thing better than classic baklava is when cheesecake is added to the mix!

I cannot resist the rich creaminess of a good baked cheesecake… and even more so when it’s as easy as this recipe!

To simplify things, this recipe starts with Pillsbury™ Crescent Roll Dough Sheets.

I have made countless desserts with crescent rolls because they’re the perfect easy no-fuss base for any decadent treat (including these easy Baklava Cheesecake Bars)!

In this simple dessert smashup, the crescent sheets are layered with an easy cheesecake and of course walnuts and honey to replicate the traditional Greek baklava flavors!

While this Baklava Cheesecake recipe uses walnuts, you can use other nuts such as pecans, pistachios, almonds or even a medley of them all!

I personally love using walnuts which are slightly bitter because they pair perfectly with the sweetness of the honey!

Back to this amazing dessert at hand…  Baklava Cheesecake is super easy to make and needs to chill before serving so you can prep it well ahead of time to serve at your next gathering!

I cut it into individual serving sizes and store in the refrigerator so it’s ready to serve at any time!  There really is nothing better on a cool winter day than a hot mug of tea and a bite sized morsel to satisfy my afternoon sweet-tooth craving!

  2. This looks really good.

  3. Last time I had baklava must have been in the 90s before my neighbors moved away! That was a loss because I was really good friends with their kids and the parents were so sweet in general. The girls mum would always make baklava. I have some fond memories with this sweet, I wonder how your baklava cheesecake tastes!
