Halva cheesecake

October 12, 2015 / 43 Comments

My father’s favorite cheesecake. Seriously, he is the biggest halva fan I’ve ever seen. He totally loves it, and when it’s around…. it’s not around for a long time..These rectangular blocks taste sweet, nutty, and consists mainly of sesame paste and sugar.

In this cheesecake, you can feel rich taste of tahini paste. I personally love the texture of halva pieces. This dessert would be perfect as a birthday cake! It’s so tasty!

    My husband and I are so much into halva lately, I have a piece of it in the house at all times. So this recipe is a must-do!!! Absolutely delicious. We normally preffer the sunflower halva, I suppose it would not matter much to swap.

  40. I wonder if you’re halva is the same as mine? Halwa in Indian cooking is a dessert we typically offer to God. It’s made with butter flour and sugar. That’s it.
