DIRECTIONS

  • Make the crust—in a small bowl, combine the crushed cookies and melted butter.
  • Press crumb mixture evenly onto the bottom of a greased 9-inch springform pan.
  • Make the filling—in a large bowl, combine the cream cheese, sugar, pureed banana, and cornstarch.
  • Beat using an electric mixer until smooth.
  • Add in eggs and egg yolk, one at a time, beating well after each addition.
  • Beat in banana schnapps, creme de cacao, rum, and vanilla extract.
  • Pour the cream cheese mixture over the crust.
  • Bake in preheated 350° oven for 15 minutes; decrease temperature to 225° and bake 1 hour and 10 minutes or until the center no longer looks wet or shiny.
  • Remove the cake from the oven and run a knife around the inside edge of the pan.
  • Turn the oven off; return the cake to the oven for an additional 30 minutes.
  • Chill, uncovered, overnight.
  • Arrange fresh fruit over cheesecake; drizzle with chocolate topping; chill until time to serve.
