Tiramisu Cheesecake with Mascarpone Cheese

Tiramisu Cheesecake with Mascarpone Cheese
Yields 1
This mouth-watering dessert from Wisconsin Cheese pairs the flavors of tiramisu with the rich texture of cheesecake.
  1. 1½ cups biscotti cookie crumbs
  2. 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  3. 1 teaspoon instant espresso granules
  1. 3 cups (12 ounces) Wisconsin Ricotta cheese
  2. 1 cup (4 ounces) Wisconsin Mascarpone cheese (such as Crave Brothers)
  3. 1 tablespoon instant espresso granules
  4. 1 cup sugar
  5. ¼ cup flour
  6. 4 eggs
  7. 1 tablespoon brandy, optional
  8. 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  9. 1½ cups mini-chocolate chips
  10. Cocoa powder for dusting
  11. Chocolate-covered coffee beans
  1. Heat the oven to 350°F. Combine the biscotti crumbs, butter, and espresso granules in a bowl and mix them together. Press the mixture into and up the sides of a 9-inch springform pan. Set aside.
  2. Beat together the ricotta, mascarpone, espresso granules, sugar, and flour. In another bowl, combine the eggs, brandy, and vanilla. Add to this to the cheese mixture and blend thoroughly. Fold in the chocolate chips.
  3. Pour the batter into the prepared crust and bake for 1 hour and 15 minutes (the top will still be slightly loose). Turn off the heat and let cake cool in the oven for 30 minutes. Remove the cake from the oven and cool completely; refrigerate overnight.
  4. Remove the sides from the springform pan and sprinkle the cheesecake with cocoa powder, if desired. Garnish with coffee beans before serving.
