Jasmine Pistachio Cheesecake for Rosa


This time is Rosa from Rosas-yummy-yums turn, She’s a cat lover, who’s also still in love with her mountain bike (I guess living in Switzerland has something to do with it 😉 ) and on her darker side she’s her PC abuser 🙂

For her, I made a mid-east inspired cheesecake, with a good dose of pistachios and exotic floral aroma.  If you want a cheesecake recipe, you can find Rosa’s Strawberry cheesecake recipe here.
