    Jamilahs_Kitchen's Note:

    Flaó is similar to American cheesecake, but the use of mint leaves and aniseeds sets it apart and makes it particularly refreshing. Posted for ZWT 5.

    1. 1
      Preheat the oven to 400ºF.
    2. 2
      To make the crust, in a bowl, combine the olive oil, butter, water, lemon juice, if using, aniseeds, flour, granulated sugar, and salt and stir with a wooden spoon until the ingredients combine together in a rough dough. Turn out the dough onto a lightly floured work surface and knead for about 10 minutes, or until soft and no longer sticky.
    3. 3
      Clean the work surface, dust again with flour, and roll out the dough into a thin round at least 13 inches in diameter. Carefully transfer the dough round to a 10-inch springform pan with 2-inch sides, pressing it into the bottom and sides. Trim away the excess dough even with the pan rim.
    4. 4
      To make the filling, combine the mint leaves, lemon zest, and granulated sugar in a blender or food processor and process on high speed until you have a mixture of fine particles.
    5. 5
      Add the cheese, eggs, and lemon juice and process until smooth.
    6. 6
      Pour the mixture into the crust.
    7. 7
      Bake the tart for 30 minutes, or until set when tested with a knife in the center. Transfer to a wire rack and let cool in the pan. Remove the pan sides and slide the tart onto a flat serving plate. Garnish with the mint leaves and dust white confectioners' sugar. Serve at room temperature.
