Afternoon Tea Delights - Baklava and Cheesecake

Top: A selection of baklava bought from M&S

Baklava is as usual tooth-achingly sweet but they're delicious nonetheless. Those made from filo pastry has the melt-in-your-mouth texture. My selection has three types of fillings: walnut, cashew nuts and pistachio nuts. I am partial towards the cashew nut versions. The taste is more refined and do not have the heavy aftertaste.

Boston cheesecake was my first try. It didn't come out great as they separates but the texture is silky and smooth, much like eating ice-cream. I guess I didn't beat the egg whites stiff enough. I will post the recipe after more experimenting.
