Strawberry Cheesecake Baklava
To thaw strawberries for this recipe: Empty the package into a bowl and sprinkle with some sugar. Stir it up so they're all coated with the sugar. Let thaw at room temperature for 2 to 3 hours. The sugar will help create a juice when the berries thaw.
The frozen phyllo dough will take 2 hours to thaw as well, so make sure to account for this extra time.
You can substitute ricotta cheese for the cottage cheese.
