i tried this recipe for our family easter dinner. unfortunately, it sank like the heavy dish it was. I am sorry but we found it to be bland, heavy, gritty in texture, and eggy in flavor, almost like a cheesecake went head on with a quiche. we threw over 3/4 of it away, which was a very expensive venture.

This was the dessert for my Greek themed Easter dinner. I cut the recipe in half, using a round springform pan and used many layers of buttered phyllo dough as the crust. The texture is quite different than a cheesecake using cream cheese, but was very pleasant. I loved the unique sweetness that the powdered sugar added and found it very, very easy to prepare. I will definitely make this again.
