Perfectly paired with a glass of wine, these cheesecake squares are a savory dessert you can make at home. Created by Molly Yeh from the food blog My Name Is Yeh, the Aged Havarti and Thyme Cheesecake Bars are also perfect for picnics.
The sharper tasting havarti cheese "lends a great little salty snap to these cheesecake bars, while the thyme makes for a pretty green funfetti-ish situation" as well as adding an esthetically pleasing garnish. The cheesecake squares recipe features a graham cracker crust with a filling that includes ingredients like shredded aged havarti cheese, fresh thyme leaves and whole milk ricotta. The homemade cheesecakes are also drizzled with honey.
The result is a new take on the traditional wine and cheese that indicates how many are adding saltier flavors to desserts.
