I use Philadelphia Cream Cheese for this recipe in Canada, but I don't know which brands are safe for the U.S. - just FYI.

CAPPUCCINO CHEESECAKE

Crust:

1-1/3 cups chocolate wafer or graham crumbs
1/4 cup white sugar
1/3 cup melted butter or margarine

Filling:

3 - 8 oz. pkgs. cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 tbsp. all-purpose flour
2 tsp coffee liquer (like Kahlua) or vanilla
3 eggs, at room temperature
1/4 cup milk
1 tbsp. instant coffee granules

Garnish:

Whipped cream; cinnamon; chocolate coffe beans (I always choose the beans. I place them around the edge of the cake to mark the servings, so everyone gets just one. Pile some in the middle, too. I also drizzle a bit of melted chocolate all over the cooled cake)

Crust:

Combine crust ingredients. Press onto bottom and halfway up sides of 9-inch springform pan. Set aside.

Filling:

Using electric mixer, beat together cream cheese, sugars, flour and liquer until smooth. Add eggs, beating on low speed just until blended. Combine milk and instant coffee, stirring until dissolved (I usually warm the milk a bit to hasten the process). Stir into cream cheese mixture.

Pour into prepared crust and bake at 450 degrees for 10 minutes. Reduce heat to 250 degrees and continue baking 45 to 55 minutes.

Remove from oven and run knife around rim of pan to loosen cake and prevent cracking. Cool thoroughly at room temperature. Chill 8 hours or overnight if desired (covered, but with nothing resting on the surface). Garnish as desired.

Makes 10 to 12 decadent servings. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

This cheesecake is easy to make, really! And just like coffee, it's very addictive... [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/wink.gif[/img]

Cayley's Mom,
I was wondering if you were going to share. I read your previous post this sounds good.
Just one question,
What are chocolate coffee beans and where do you get them, I'm on London,Ontario.
Thanks!-Sylvia

Hi smack
I'm north of Toronto and I buy them at our local specialty coffee shop. Do you have large coffee chains in London, like Timothy's Coffees of the World or something? They may carry them.
Also, I have no idea if they are safe for PAs, but Cayley won't go near this cake. It's very adult-tasting, lol. I will try to check next time I buy them (which will be soon). But, if the chocolate's safe, the coffee bean will be OK. Also, as an aside, I don't think these beans are the greatest thing for kids anyway! Needless to say, they're loaded with caffeine.

Gotcha,
Our kids don't get much caffeine in their lives.
Now on the other hand, I need my caffeine in the morning, plus a piece of this cheese cake
during the holidays gives me some incentive to go back on the treadmill like a good little girl. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]
