Triple Layer Cheesecake


Reprinted with permission from
The Kosher Palette


Food Editor's Note:  Our good friend Adele Bacow gave us this cookbook, raving about the quality and ease of its recipes.  This first recipe that we tried, a cheesecake for Shavuot, lived up to our high expectations.  This cheesecake has plain, coffee, and chocolate layers, and looks and tastes like a dream.  It will be a spectacular dessert for any special occasion!




1 cup Oreo cookie crumbs
2 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons butter, melted

4 (8-ounce) packages cream cheese, softened
1 3/4 cups sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Pinch of salt
4 large eggs
1 teaspoon instant espresso powder
1 tablespoon hot water
3 ounces unsweetened chocolate, coarsely chopped


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Butter bottom and sides of a 9-inch springform pan.  Cover outside tightly with 2 to 3 layers of heavy-duty foil; set aside.

Combine cookie crumbs and sugar in a small bowl.  Stir in butter until mixture is evenly moistened.

Press crumbs on bottom of prepared pan.  Bake for 10 minutes; cool on a wire rack.  Turn oven off.

Beat cream cheese in a large mixing bowl at medium-high speed with an electric mixer until light and fluffy.  Gradually add sugar, beating well.  Reduce speed to medium and beat in vanilla and salt.  Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating until blended after each addition.

After first layer is firm, melt chocolate in top of a double boiler.  Add 1 3/4 cups cream cheese mixture, stirring until well blended.  Spoon over espresso layer and freeze 20 minutes.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Spread remaining filling over chocolate layer.  Place cheesecake in a larger baking pan on oven rack.  Pour enough hot water into larger pan to come 1-inch up the side of the springform pan.  Bake 1 1/2 hours or until center is just set.

Remove cheesecake from water bath.  Cool completely on a wire rack.  Remove foil from pan.  Cover and refrigerate overnight.  Remove side of pan just before serving.  Drizzle with melted chocolate and garnish with coffee beans.

You venture on the board, consider pushing ahead, and somewhat move your chest area forward and all of a sudden the strangely looking stage on your feet starts to consistently push ahead. It drifts forward, in reverse, and with a ZERO turning span it can without much of a stretch turn set up. You look cool, you move discreetly, you spare vitality, you're adjusting on a truly cool looking contraption, you stop people in their tracks, and it can reach up to a running velocity. That is it, what more do you ask for from this thing? You can't hope to fly at any point in the near future like McFly yet!
