This is classic New York cheese cake with a Japanese twist. I got the Nutty Rice Cereal for the crust at my local health food store. If you can't find it, any sort of puffed rice cereal should work (though the less ingredients that are in it, the better). A more traditional cheese cake crust could also be used, but I believe that the rice compliments the green tea far better than graham crackers.
My dear friend Lisa made this one day and brought it to work to share. I BEGGED and pleaded her for the recipe because it was so yummy and delish! I was shocked at just how simple it is when she emailed it to me. She got it somewhere on the web- she thought it was cdkitchen. Hope you enjoy it!
A Greek lemon-honey cheesecake-type dessert pie. If necessary, cream cheese can be substituted for Mizithra or Mascarpone, and other types of mild honey can be substituted for thyme or orange blossom. Cooking time does not include time to bake piecrust (presumably about 30-40 min). Good with a Mediterranean region sweet dessert wine.
A co-worker prepared this dessert for a party, and everyone requested the recipe. She said that she got it from the local Alabama Living magazine. I went home immediately and found my magazine. IT IS DELICIOUS!! And VERY EASY TO MAKE!
Posted in reply to a message board request. If you like German Chocolate Cake and cheesecake, you might want to give this recipe a try. *Note: the prep/cook times do not include the overnight refrigeration required before the topping can be added.
This is wonderful simple cake to make. I got this from a Kraft magazine. I used about 1 cup of chocolate chips instead of the squares of chocolate. I added Cool Whip to the top after it was cooled and then chocolate shavings on top of that.
