Fresh strawberries

Cocoa powder

Instructions:

Prepare the Pan: Preheat your oven to 325°F (165°C). Grease a 9-inch springform pan and line the

bottom with parchment paper.

Make the Crust:

In a medium bowl, combine the crushed ladyfingers (or graham crackers) and granulated sugar.

Pour in the melted butter and mix until the crumbs are evenly coated.

Press the mixture firmly into the bottom of the prepared springform pan.

Bake the crust in the preheated oven for about 10 minutes, then set it aside to cool.

Prepare the Cheesecake Filling:

In a large mixing bowl, beat the softened cream cheese until smooth and creamy.

Add the granulated sugar and continue to beat until well combined.

Mix in the mascarpone cheese until smooth.

Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition.

Stir in the vanilla extract, brewed espresso, and coffee liqueur (if using).

Assemble the Cheesecake:

Pour half of the cheesecake filling over the cooled crust, spreading it out evenly.

Arrange a layer of ladyfingers over the filling, dipping each one briefly in the brewed espresso mixed

with coffee liqueur (if using) before placing it in the pan.

Pour the remaining cheesecake filling over the ladyfingers and smooth the top.

Bake the Cheesecake:

Place the springform pan in a larger baking dish. Fill the dish with hot water until it reaches halfway

up the sides of the springform pan (this water bath helps prevent cracks in the cheesecake).

Bake in the preheated oven for 60-70 minutes, or until the center is just set and a toothpick inserted

into the middle comes out mostly clean.

Turn off the oven and let the cheesecake cool in the oven with the door slightly ajar for about an

hour.

Remove the cheesecake from the oven and allow it to cool completely at room temperature, then

refrigerate for at least 4 hours, or overnight.

Prepare the Tiramisu Layer:

In a medium bowl, whip the heavy cream with the powdered sugar and vanilla extract until stiff peaks

form.

Spread the whipped cream over the chilled cheesecake.

Garnish and Serve:

Dust the top of the cheesecake with unsweetened cocoa powder.

Garnish with additional whipped cream and fresh strawberries.

Carefully remove the sides of the springform pan and transfer the cheesecake to a serving platter.

Slice and serve, enjoying the rich, creamy layers of cheesecake and tiramisu.

Tips for a Perfect Cheesecake:

 

Room Temperature Ingredients: Ensure all your ingredients, especially the cream cheese and eggs,

are at room temperature. This helps them combine more smoothly and results in a creamier filling.

Avoid Overmixing: When adding the eggs, mix just until incorporated to avoid incorporating too

much air into the batter, which can cause cracks.

Water Bath: For an extra smooth and crack-free cheesecake, bake the cheesecake in a water bath as

described in the instructions.

Chilling Time: Allow the cheesecake to chill thoroughly in the refrigerator before serving. This helps

the flavors to meld and the texture to firm up.

Conclusion

 

This Tiramisu Cheesecake is a luxurious dessert that combines the best of both worlds: the rich,

creamy texture of cheesecake and the classic flavors of tiramisu. With its layers of espresso-soaked

ladyfingers, creamy filling, and a dusting of cocoa powder, this dessert is sure to be a hit at any

gathering. Enjoy making and savoring this delightful treat!
