If there was ever a day for celebrating Israel, Yom Ha’Atzmaut is it.
These blue and white (sorry, kachol v’lavan) cheesecake squares are made with gvina levana, a delicious soft white cheese that makes a frequent appearance at Israeli breakfasts. Oh, and in my dilled dairy quick bread.
These perfect little squares are light enough for the warm weather but rich enough to satisfy your cheesecake craving. And with that pretty blue swirl, they’re basically irresistible.
Update 5/31/12: A friend made a chocolate swirl version of this cheesecake by mixing ¾ Tbsp cocoa powder with the reserved filling. This sounds like a better idea than using melted chocolate (as I suggested in the comments) since it eliminates the hardening issue.
