Tiramisu Cheesecake

2 tablespoons butter or margarine, melted
1/2 teaspoon instant espresso powder
1 c vanilla-wafer crumbs

24 oz cream cheese or Neufchatel cheese Room temp
8 oz mascarpone cheese
1 2/3 c sugar
4 lg eggs, room temp
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 pn salt
2 teaspoons instant espresso powder
1 tablespoon hot water
2 tablespoons brandy
1 oz semisweet chocolate, grated
2 teaspoons unsweetened cocoa

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter an 8-inch springform pan. Stir
in butter and espresso powder in small bowl until combined. Stir
in crumbs until crumbs are evenly moistened. Pat evenly over bottom
of prepared pan. Bake 10 minutes. Cool on wire rack. Keep oven on.
Tightly cover outside bottom and sides or springform pan with
heavy-duty foil.

Meanwhile, beat cream cheese and mascarpone in large mixer bowl at
medium-high speed until light and fluffy, 2 minutes. Gradually beat
in sugar, scraping down sides of bowl with rubber spatula, until
completely smooth, 3 minutes. Reduce speed to medium and beat in
vanilla and salt. Add eggs, one at a time, beating just until
blended after each addition. Pour 4 cups filling over crust in
prepared pan and place in large roasting pan. Dissolve espresso in
hot water. Fold into remaining filling with brandy and grated
chocolate. Spoon mixture evenly over filling in pan, smooth top
with spatula. Place pan on oven rack. Pour enough hot water into
roasting pan to come 1" up side of springform pan.

Bake 1-1/4 hours or until center is just set. Remove cheesecake
from water bath. Cool completely on wire rack. Remove foil. Cover
and refrigerate overnight. Just before serving, run knife around
edge of pan, remove sides. Sprinkle lightly with cocoa. Makes 12

Awesome Tiramisu Cheesecake, June 16, 2005 - 12:13 PM
Reviewer: Anonymous from Texas, USA
I made this cheesecake as a "finale" to an Italian meal. It was SO easy to make and tasted wonderful!! I didn't have any brandy on hand, so I substituted dark rum...still worked out fine.
