Tiramisu Cheesecake

I realize that this is not the time to throw those New Year resolutions out the window but you just may have to for this recipe.

My Italian half has always loved Tiramisu. My other English, Irish, Russian, German, Scottish, etc. half just sees it going to my hips while shaking it's head.

This recipe combines Tiramisu and cheesecake together to make one of the most wonderful desserts!

Here's what you'll need....

1 pkg (12oz) vanilla wafers (For this recipe only, don't look at the ingredients on the side of the wafer box otherwise you'll end up not making this.)
5 tsp instant coffee, divided
3 Tbsp hot water, divided
4 8oz. pkgs cream cheese
1 c sugar
1 c sour cream
4 eggs
1 1/2 c whipped cream (cream that you have whipped yourself with some sugar and vanilla)
1 Tb baking cocoa

Layer half of wafers in greased 13x9 dish. In a small bowl, dissolve 2tsp coffee in 2Tb hot water. Brush wafers with half of coffee, set remaining coffee aside.
In a large mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese, sugar and sour cream until smooth. Add eggs: beat until just combined. Divide batter in half. Dissolve remaining coffee in remaining hot water and stir into one half of the batter. Spread coffee-batter over wafers. Layer with remaining wafers; brush with reserved coffee. Top with remaining batter.
Bake at 325 for 40 minutes. Cool for 1 hour. Refrigerate for at least 6 hours or overnight.
Spread with whipped cream, dust with cocoa.

Now, try to only eat one piece!
