Did you know there was a National Cheesecake Day? Mmmm, National Cheesecake Day (July 30th) happens during National Blueberry Month – what a great combination. Now, if only we could add National Talk Like a Pirate day on the same day we could all eat blueberry cheesecake while engaging in some fun dialect.
In honor of National Cheesecake Day, this week’s recipe is: “Tiramisu Cheesecake.”
What You Need
HEAT oven to 325°F.
LINE 13×9-inch pan with foil, with ends of foil extending over sides. Spread half the wafers onto bottom of prepared pan. Add 2 tsp. coffee granules to 2 Tbsp. hot water; stir until dissolved. Brush half onto wafers in pan; reserve remaining dissolved coffee for later use.
BEAT cream cheese and sugar in large bowl with mixer until well blended. Add sour cream; mix well. Add eggs, 1 at a time, mixing on low speed after each just until blended. Remove 3-1/2 cups batter; place in medium bowl. Dissolve remaining coffee granules in remaining hot water. Stir into removed batter; spread over wafers in pan. Top with remaining wafers; brush with remaining dissolved coffee. Cover with remaining plain batter.
BAKE 45 min. or until center is almost set. Cool. Refrigerate 3 hours. Use foil handles to lift cheesecake from pan. Spread with COOL WHIP just before serving; sprinkle with cocoa powder.
