I was looking through the Kitchen Kneads cookbook the other day and ran across this recipe.  For some reason I had never noticed it before, but it sounded so good, I had to make it.

I was right.  It’s delicious.  It has a very nutty flavor not only because of the nuts, but also because of the whole wheat flour.  This is a recipe you need to make if you want a cheesecake, but don’t want to take the time to make a full-size one.  It will definitely satisfy any cheesecake craving.

  • 1 cup wheat flour
