Tiramisu Cheesecake Recipe
With a crust made of ladyfinger crumbs and a filling made with cream cheese, mascarpone, and espresso, this cheesecake combines the flavors of tiramisu with the richness of a New York-style cheesecake.
Experience the taste of tiramisu in a spectacular, creamy cheesecake. Mamma mia!

I served this for Christmas dinner and it was a big hit. The recipe did need more Kaluha as previously mentioned so I used 3 Tbs. in the crust, 6 Tbs. in the cheese mixture. I would use even more - next time I'll use 5 & 10. I used shortbread cookies instead of the lady fingers. Couldn't find the mascarpone cheese so I mixed together 8 oz. of cream cheese with 1/4 c. sour cream & 2 Tbs. heavy cream. The substitutions were necessary and worked just fine. I can't imagine the recipe getting any better. The cheesecake top didn't split but it did brown too much so I mixed up a simple chocolate ganache and poured over the cooled cake. Very attractive served with whipped cream, a dusting of cocoa a dash of cinnamon sitting in a puddle of Kaluha. TIP: For nice clean cuts you can cut your cheesecakes with dental floss. Push down and pull straight out, not up.

The middle of it still looked gooey, but I went ahead and put it in the refrigerator over night. After about 24 hours from starting, I sifted a little cocoa powder on top and grated some chocolate on top.

Instead of Khalua, I used Starbucks Coffee Liqueur, and I took the suggestions and used 4 in the crust and 8 in the filling. I highly recommend this, and in the future will try either the waterbath, or the suggestion from the advice section and run the knife around the cheesecake after removing it from the oven to let the cheesecake pull away from the pan (t
