Cappuccino Cheesecake

READY IN: 1hr 45mins
Recipe by Marg CaymanDesigns

Adopted in the Great RecipeZaar Adoption of 2005 and it is an adoptee I'm proud to call my own. Easy to make with a nice cappuccino flavor. I recommend using espresso powder or 2 Tbls. of instant coffee for a stronger flavor. Enjoy! Family Circle magazine original recipe.

I made this for a friend's birthday lunch and got RAVES from the ladies for days afterwards. It actually prompted discussion about a 'mom' business of selling cheesecakes. I made it as written (except for adding some cinnamon to the base)and it turned out wonderfully. I used pecans as the base and they were a wonderful match. I used a rich dark roast instant coffee (Maxwell House I think?) and it was perfect. This is definitely getting made again.
