Since I saw Jacques Pepin making this dessert, I fell in love with this simple and stylish dessert. The original recipe calls for honey, pistachio, and dried cranberries. This way the dessert looks very wintery – green pistachios with red cranberries create a Christmas mood.

I’ve already made quite a few different cheese tortas (yes, this is my favorite cheese dessert): with trifle honey (oh, it is outer space!), with a variety of dry fruits and nuts, and with various jams and nuts. It is delicious, delicious, and… delicious!
