Shrimp Cheese Cake

Cheese Cake is really a sweet dessert. However this is a variation as a Savory Cheese Cake with Swedish tastes that can be used on the “Smörgåsbord” or as a starter. As Easter is coming up and many do not eat meat this is perfect for the Easterbuffé or Eastertable. However it is festive and tastes great for any festive dinner table.
