It’s not just the pastry that’s deconstructed in this reinterpretation of a classic cheesecake from Warehouse’s Emily Hahn: The recipe also is considerably more free-form than most. In other words, Hahn prefers for each home cook to determine how this dessert ought to come together: “Let your creative side take over and show you the way,” she says.

So the amount and arrangement of pastry, crunch and fruit topping on each plate is up to you, although Hahn does recommend scattering sesame seeds as a finishing touch.
