How to Make Espresso chocolate almond cluster cheesecake

Step-by-Step

  • 1preheat oven to 350°. To make the crust, coat a 9 inch springform pan with cooking spray. Put all remaining ingredients in a bowl and stir until well mixed. Pour into the prepared pan and press evenly over the bottom and 1 inch up sides.
  • 2To make the filling, beat cream cheese and both sugars with electric mixer until smooth, scraping down the sides of the bowl at least twice. Add eggs one at a time, mixing well after each addition. Add espresso and vanilla and beat until the batter is smooth. Stir in the chocolate almond clusters by hand. Pour the batter over the crust in the pan.
