How to Make Cranberry Mocha Cheesecake by Rose

Step-by-Step

  • 1Crust: combine cookie crumbs and butter and press into the bottom and up the sides a little of a greased 9 inch springform pan; set aside.
  • 2In a large mixer bowl, beat cream cheese until smooth. Combine sugar and flour and add to the cream cheese and mix well. Add eggs beat on low until just combined.
  • 3In a small bowl dissolve coffee in the water; add cream and cinnamon. Stir into the cream cheese mixture just until blended. Pour into crust. Place on a baking sheet. Bake at 350 for 1 hour and 15 minutes. I test after 1 hour depending on the oven, sometimes I need the extra 15 minutes.
  • 4Cool completely in pan at least 1 or 2 hours. In a large saucepan, bring cornstarch and cranberry sauce to a boil cook and stir for a few minutes or until thickened. Cool.
  • 5In a small bowl beat cream and vanills until soft peaks form. Gradually add conf. sugar beating until stiff peaks form. Spread over the cooled cheesecake. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
  • 6Carefully spread 1 cup of cranberry mixture to within 1 inch of the edge, cover and refrigerate the remaining cranberry mixture. refrigerate the cheesecake overnight, serve wit the remaining cranberry mixture.
